Finally Settling In To Life In My RV...Until...

When I come home and I have water, electricity, TV, internet, refrigeration, and cell phone, all in working order, it finally feels comfortable living out here in my RV. Except for the high gas prices for my car, I am saving lots of money while my house is rented out. Now I can focus on getting all of those things done around here that I have put off like organizing my stuff, fixing the roof on the mobile home, trying to grow plants before the squirrels eat them and most importantly taking trash to the dump! I can't seem to convince anyone to go with me so I guess I am going to have to take the trip by myself. I'm sure it will be easy to find I just hate going to new places when I don't know where to go.

I actually wrote that paragraph above just a few minutes ago and as I was trying to think of more to write I glanced at my fridge. The fridge that is supposed to have a green light above it that tells me everything is ok. THERE IS NO LIGHT!!! This is the same fridge that I spent $800 on last summer to replace the circuit board. New RV fridges cost about $2,000! Oh no!!!!

Just when I was thinking that it was so nice that everything was working. Great. Now I have to call the repair guy tomorrow. It costs $60 just for him to come out. And I'll probably have to take time off work to meet him out here. Oh! Well, I guess I will have something to write about now. In the mean time, I went over to the mobile home and plugged in the back-up fridge. I'm glad I still have it. I don't know how long it will take to get cool but I think I am going to be transferring groceries late tonight. Gee, that is not what I wanted to do tonight. So much for saving money. I bet this fix is going to be expensive. I told myself that if my fridge gave me trouble again, I was just going to buy a small dorm fridge from Walmart. It cost around $60, the same price as a service call. I guess I should at least find out what is wrong with it though. Maybe it will be something simple (yea, right).
