It has come to my attention that we desperately need a 2nd refrigerator. The problem is we really have no room! Ours is completely jam packed with leftovers, tons of Alex's sack lunch stuff, milk, pop, and a ton of condiment bottles. The main issue here is I have no room for milk. We're going through 6-7 Gallons of milk a week and I'm having to go to the store every couple days because I can't fit more than 2 gallons in there at a time. I could if I didn't have a pitcher of Apple Juice, Grape Juice, and Pineapple Juice made at one time. I already bought a slimline gallon container with a pour spout so the Kool Aid takes less room. Unless I go after the kids go to bed, I really have no time in the evening to go to the store. With it now getting into fall though, I hate the roads at night out here because of the deer and the possibility I might take one or several out because sometimes a whole posse of them run across the road right infront of ya.
This is what I'd like to get but in like white or almond and stick the other in the garage. I think a side by side would make a world of difference here because the kids could get their own drinks of water whenever instead of asking all the time and I would have an extra fridge for all the milk. I've heard though that with side by sides you actually lose room which I guess wouldn't be that big of a deal if you had a 2nd one but still you'd like to get as much as you could in it. Mainly I've heard the freezer is the issue, it's small. Ive never owned a side by side, actually the one we have is from our first house so we've owned it for over 10 years now. Has anyone owned both and which did you prefer?? I know they make a regular one with water on the front too. By buying another and keeping the other, I'm probably preparing myself for a massacre on my electric bill since we also have a refrigerator sized deep freeze and a 8 person hot tub on the back porch. If we do buy one, the garage is in for a remodel. We've done so much cleaning out and remodeling the way the house looks on the inside for the sale, I guess it was only time till we had to do the garage too. I would need to move some metal shelving next to the back door so I could put the fridge there for easy access.
I tried once again to get a good pic of the boys together. My kids are AWFUL getting their pictures taken. Sucks really. I have no good pictures. I think part of the problem is the delay that my digital camera has. By the time it clicks the kids turn around or something. Sometimes I believe digitals aren't as special as we make them out to be because of the delay and how many times I have to delete just to get the perfect pictures.
Damien though can be caught off guard so I can push the button, then say something in my high pitched baby talk voice and he'll look and smile.
Here's a pic of Damien sporting his shirt for the Grandparents. I had to buy it since the kids are Italian and the one thing everyone always tells me about Dave's Gpa from Italy is how he used to do the whole "ah" at the end of his words. If you can't tell it says You Pincha My Cheeks, I Pulla Your Hair. I think his dad will get a kick out of it.
