Our refrigerator has been on the fritz (again) and at best it has been keeping things cool and at worse, not warm. The Head Maintenance Man came by today with one of his helpers and they replaced a couple of broken parts. He thinks that this should solve the problem permanently, not just temporarily like the previous times. I'm cautiously optimistic.
I can (hopefully) have cold foods kept cold easily.
I can make hot foods in minutes, or seconds with the microwave.
I have light at the flip of the switch.
I have shelter that can be climate controlled to my whims.
I can speak to people hundreds of miles away.
Life isn't too bad, is it?
