How long has it been.

Yesterday morning I woke up to discover that the electricity was out. I wondered how long it had been since it was out and more importantly how long before it would come back on. I mean seriously, a girl needs her coffee when she get up in the morning. I think the power came back on around 7:30 and that first cup tasted heavenly.

It was chilly and rainy all day so I spent the majority of the morning on the computer playing around or reading. When I was making my lunch it occured to me how disgusting my refrigerator was getting. When I got done eating I decided it was time to clean it out. II started on the inside then the outside and oh my stars when was the last time I bothered to clean off the top. Last but not least I moved it and cleaned the floor underneath.

It's one of those things that gets left isn't it. Mine is minging and needs a clean, you've made me feel guilty now, lol

we have a new fridge, and now I need to check the top. since I can't see it I forget it. when we got rid of the old one, it was a horrible mess up top..greasy dust is so hard to remove. the simple fix is wipe it once a month. HA.. I can't reach it without a ladder and I don't feel comfy on a ladder, that is my 'excuse'

love that cup...

What a pretty cup. I am getting my self esteem in shape for when the reno guys move our fridge - haven't moved it to clean under it since - well, ever and we've been living here 6 years! Embarrassment awaits me.

I love seeing your fridge! It looks like ours, magnets and all. I think it would be fun to see all our blogger's fridges. Just a few days ago, we cleaned the top of our fridge, too! It took a long time, it had been so long. you have to stand on a chair to reach it.

Ugh...I hate the surprises under appliances when you move them. I'm pretty good about doing it a couple of times a year, but still....there are always treasures under there. The cats are always happy--we find all of their toys!

That's some heavy duty fridge cleaning! I haven't cleaned under ours since it arrived a couple of years ago. I do try to clean the top since even though I'm too short to see it, my dad is tall so he always says how dirty the tops of people's fridges are and I'll never forget that!

Sandee said...

Yes that needs doing from time to time. I need to do the same.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

This reminds me that ours is due for a thorough cleaning as well. My least favorite job around the house :-/

I've looked at it so many times and thought I should clean that but then never did. It really was disgusting...lol

The cup is another Pioneer Woman items, love her stuff.
I think it's been longer than 6 years since mine has been moved

I can see the top of the fridge when I come down the stairs and I knew it was bad but didn't realize how bad in really was

Ann Thompson said...

I found two fun size candy bars under mine. What a waste of good chocolate. I remember the days of cat toys under the fridge

Ann Thompson said...

It was long over due. I need to find a really tall friend to make regular visits and shame me into keeping the top of the fridge clean lol

Ann Thompson said...

It's been so long I can't even remember the last timely did it

Ann Thompson said...

I always thought cleaning the bathroom as the worst job but now I think the fridge has taken the number 1 spot

maybe found some treasures, collectable dust bunnies?

Reeni said...

One of my least favorite jobs! I'm sure ours has a ton of dust bunnies under it. It's a good feeling when it's done though. :)

Way to go on cleaning out the refrigerator and how nice that you were able to clean under too!

My fridge is almost six months old thanks for reminding me it is about time to dust on top. Maybe I will include dusting it on the day I change my new AC filters.
