04:17 pm: More Refrigerator

The guys who brought the new fridge asked me to come out -- they showed me essentially the same problem with the new fridge. It's smaller and the tech was coming two days later, so I just had them put the door on. I spent a lot of time hauling things back to where they go and resting because I was expecting them to swap refrigerators.

The tech came today, and it turns out that the twisted seal isn't a problem -- it could be cut out, it's for show. He used a temperature reader to see what the freezer was, and at -5, it's definitely freezing. I guess I was just seeing & feeling rather than using data.

Of the four places I get weather info, two have 80s for today and Friday and two for all week. It'd be easier to be sure which is right, except that each two has a local station and a TV/newspaper station. I'd really like to go out all week.

I actually found a duvet set that I really liked (I'm almost down to just one set), but it's Ikea and they don't do online shipping for that. They don't do online shipping for a lot of things. However, if I read the Handicapped para right, I can go, tell them what I want, and they'll bring it to me to buy. I'll have to call and be sure.

Just in case you're not reading Curiousity's twitter.

Wow, here I skip reading blogs and you've had a lot of excitement. Seems that everything worked its way out, though, but I'm sure getting to here from there wasn't a lot of fun.
I hope the new fridge is working properly by now and the Peapod delivery is working, too. Our new fridge has the freezer on the bottom and you have to be really sure to close it properly or else .......... as I found out last week. And the doors above need a good shove to close, too. Not so thrilled about all that.
How is the Ikea thing working? They seem to be pretty good about helping and the one closest to us has handicapped spaces close to the entrance (I believe) but it's still a lot of walking to get to where you need to go. So, if they do what you describe that would be a great way to work it. I hope it does work out.
Take good care,

The Ikea catalog came yesterday and it turns out that picking & delivering is by the same outside company where they do both and it starts at $99. Even with a few other small things I'd like, it would only be about $50. I think I'll just have to try it on a good day.

I have trouble getting stuff out of the bottom -- the crispers never have anything in them and the shelf above those always has just things I don't use often. The top kichen cabinets can't be used, either, but the freezer doesn't go that high.
