I'm so proud of Serge. He had a repairman come out for the refrigerator and was told it'd be $375 to repair (all the gas leaked out and it needs a new evaporator) and though he really, really wanted a new one, he okayed the repair. We have to wait until the beginning of next week though.
For now, we are living out of an ice chest. Each day we "make" a block of ice in the freezer and then put it in the camping cooler. Thrifty as I am, I suggested we just forego a fridge and make ice for the coolers for our milk and whatnot. Isn't that what they did a long time ago? Isn't that why we sometimes call it an icebox? Works just fine. Serge mocked me derisively when I suggested that.
Today is my last day of work for the summer! And it's a cake day too, we are just going out to lunch for the last class. Dim sum too! Then a little paperwork and I'm free free free! I have submitted an application for unemployment though I don't know if I'll be approved. I'm on the fence about it. If I do get it, I'll have to prove that I'm looking for work, but really I just want to take the two and a half months off and enjoy it. We'll see what happens. No fabulous cruises or jaunts to Europe this summer, but I do have a couple things planned. My annual summer visit to California is on, with side trips to San Fran (to see baby brother) and Las Vegas for a couple days. I was sent an invite from the Venetian to stay free in a suite plus $75 in free slot play. They are gonna lose money on me, but they don't know that yet. Then when I get back from there, Serge and I are gonna take a road trip for a few days up to Lac Saint Jean, Charlevoix and Quebec City. Then in August we're going to meet friends for a weekend in Ogunquit Maine, a state I've never visited. So lot's of things going on, I don't see how I can look for a job too : )
Let the summer vacation begin!
