Trials and Tribulations

What a weird day yesterday turned out to be.

In a break from tradition, I did not make it to the beach.

The primary reason for missing the beach was that the refrigerator at the condo died. Seriously died. We had an early morning appointment to have the refrigerator assessed for repair. The main board burned out and we had an appliance technician confirm that a new board was required. It seems like something always needs attention. Unfortunately, the board will not be replaced until Tuesday and we are using dry ice to keep the refrigerator cold.

Later during the day somehow the lights got left blazing on the car and the battery drained in the oppressive heat of the day while Chris and I were shopping. Ugh! Fortunately there was a guy in a truck who had jumper cables and we were able to get started and back to the condo where I put the battery on a trickle charger to restore its charge.

Strange things happening as our time away draws to a close. Is it Florida trying to keep me here longer than planned? 

I hope so.
