I pulled into the driveway after my daughter's gymnastics class and my husband runs out in the driveway waving his arms
THE FREEZER ISN'T WORKING!!!
I go in and look and sure enough, everything is thawing. the ice cream is almost to runny point and all the meat is thawed. ARGH! I think fast. Ok, we'll put it all in coolers and go get ice until the freezer thaws and maybe it just needs to defrost then it will be fine. Hubby gets some clothes on and we start moving stuff into coolers. I run next door to the neighbor's and give them three half-gallons of ice cream, some pork steaks, bacon and waffles.
Meanwhile, a thought occurs to me. A very good and sweet friend who lives nearby may have a deep freeze. I call her. She answers her cell phone, thank goodness. And yes, she does have a freezer and it happens to be mostly empty.
I load the coolers in the car and drive to her house and load up her freezer (filled it up!)
Thank goodness for friends!
Meanwhile, my freezer is sitting in a puddle of water in the garage. I have been sopping it up occasionally and hoping against all hope that a good defrost is all it needs.
Mama can't afford a new freezer!
Please send freezer-healing vibes. :D
