New Refrigerator Coming Soon

But, will it be SOON ENOUGH?

Last night, I awoke, startled, at 4:30 am.

The night before, I awoke, startled, at 3:30 am.

I'm so ready to sleep through until something normal, like my bladder, demands attention.

What has been bugging my sleep lately?

My refrigerator.  The motor is making a hugely annoying squealing sound.  Two weeks ago, it did that for several hours, then quit.

I was afraid to open the door for ice, because if the motor stops, I've heard the food will only keep for three days.  Starvation finally dictated that I open the door.  I could not have been happier to find my partly consumed tub of chocolate ice cream so cold I had to let it thaw a bit to be able to scoop any out.

Sleeping through the noise was a problem at first.  But last night takes the cake!  I woke up WHEN IT STOPPED.
