Back Home Again in Indiana
While the rest of the world is embracing the French door refrigerator with pull out freezer, I’m clinging to the 90s and a side by side. Here’s the thing with the French door refrigerator with pull out freezer – it has a pull out freezer. Those things were clearly invented by a man with the organizational skills of a drunk toddler. I don’t want to randomly toss things in my freezer; I want to neatly stack things on my freezer shelves. And don’t even get me started on having to bend over to open it or pull things out of it – if I wanted to do standing ab work before inhaling half a gallon of ice cream, I would do standing ab work before inhaling half a gallon of ice cream.
But an attempt at refrigerator shopping this weekend revealed I may be SOL.
Have you been refrigerator shopping lately? It’s a nightmare. First of all, there are way too many options that are 99% the same. Second of all, a simple side by side with water and ice in the door is about impossible to find. We found the exact model we had in Joplin only to be told they don’t make it anymore. But the sales guy was super helpful in pulling up multiple other black refrigerators that were all at least $500 more than the one we wanted and most of them had, you guessed it, pull out freezers.
Which puts us right back where we started – wishing for a simpler time when all you had to do was dig a hole in the yard and pray for winter.
