I'm home now. Yeah. When last I posted, the car was having a temper tantrum. Had to be that because when it was towed back to the dealership again, the diagnostic machine found nothing wrong. Okay, so the check engine light and the fact that it kept stalling much have been a figment of our imagination. Let me just say that the two hundred sixty mile trip Tuesday was a little hand clenching since most of it is across the desert where there are no services. Thank you, Lord, we made it and the light hasn't come back on.
We were glad to be home...We opened the garage door and were hit with a horrible odor. Our trash cans are in the garage and in the summer, that happens depending on what we've pitched. Oh, well the trashmen come again Friday. When I opened the door to the house, the odor had permeated the house - it was bad. I went around plugging in air fresheners, lighting candles, you know the routine.
I opened the refrigerator to get a cold bottle of water and was almost knocked to the floor by the smell. It wasn't the trash cans - it was the rotting food in the freezer and refrigerator. OMG, it was the most horrible thing.My wonderful hubby did most of the grunt work cleaning out the disgusting mess and we've bought out the local supply of air fresheners, but the house is almost free of that odor.
So our welcome home night was spent at Home Depot buying a new fridge. Guess what, they only keep a floor item, the rest are in a warehouse and delivery is one week out. So, we bought one of those little fridges to keep us until next Tuesday.Thank you, friend, for inviting us over for dinner and to smell a normal house
This morning, I'm out the door to buy a few groceries to tide us over and then out to lunch with my water aerobic girlies. Life is almost back to normal. YAHOO.
See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
UGH what a terrible welcome home...but I am glad you are back....and looking forward to a sweet smelling home and a new fridge. hugs abbyReplyDelete
Thanks abby. I think the odor has finally left my nostrils. lolDelete
Oh, my, that's an awful homecoming. I'm happy things are getting sorted for you and on the way back to normal.ReplyDelete
Homecomings have been better. Thanks for the good wishes.Delete
Glad you're home safe and sound, shame about the awful pong!ReplyDelete
Me too, Rosie. Thanks.Delete
Yuck! This post should have been titled the "Perils of Sunny and Her Hubby." Glad you are home safe and sound.ReplyDelete
Due to a cat that ate anything I left out on the counter, I thawed meat in a cold oven. Yep! I forgot, and we left for a long weekend. When we got home the temps outside were sub zero. We opened the house and kept our coats on. Needless to say, Sam was really pissed!

Should keep that title in mind if I ever decide to write a story.Delete
How are you enjoying your free time.
Oh how horrible! That has happened to many of us I'm sure! Ugh, yuk!ReplyDelete
Glad your last leg of the journey was safe! Brave of you both!
I don't know about brave, but I can only imagine how those intrepid wagoneers felt.Delete
Never a dull moment at your house.
Doesn't seem that way lately, Mere.Delete
Horrible! Nick and I had this ordeal with my parents freezer. We didn't know it was unplugged. Hams, turkeys - I still have nightmares! I feel for you friend, I really do!ReplyDelete
I don't think I will ever forget that horrible odor.Delete
Hi Sunny, so glad you made it home safe and sound with no more dramas.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, what an awful homecoming! I really feel for you too. Glad you are getting it all sorted out and hope things return to normal soon.
This morning I'm off to water aerobics and life as I like to know it. Thanks for your good wishes.Delete
SG, Glad you are home safe and sound.ReplyDelete
Not a very good home coming. Freezer problem happened to us so I feel for you.
Thanks, Ronnie. We survived. In the scheme of things it could have been so much worse but I'm glad it's behind us.Delete
oh yay about the car. but GOSH about the fridge! I can't imagine! i would be in tears, i bet.ReplyDelete
If there were tears it was caused by the odor - it was bad.Delete
Wow, what a series of unfortunate events (Sorry couldn't resist). Quite the nonstop adventures. Glad all is well now.ReplyDelete
what a horrible way to be welcomed home...hope the odor has gone away now and that all is back to normal.ReplyDelete
Gosh, Sunny!!! What a stressful journey home, and rough homecoming!! So sorry you and Ray had to go through all of that. I'm glad that you are home safe, and sound. At least you got a new fridge out of the deal! Glad that things are settled down for you now!ReplyDelete
Wishing you some peaceful and relaxing days ahead! Many hugs,
