This would be a great project! Maybe we could send it in to Mother Earth News and they would do a whole article. We could stand next to our freshly painted yard sale fridges wearing our long braids, tie-dye T-shirts, love beads and birkinstocks. (I may be getting a little carried away.)

One side by side in kitchen, old up/down frig in basement, and upright freezer in basement too. Then there's the boat ...

Omigsoh! I suddenly have a desire to decorate my kitchen in harvest gold appliances and to carpet my house in red "shag" carpet. Now, where's my shag carpet rake? I'll look for it as soon as I wash my bell-bottom jeans.

Carried away? No one's carried away here.

I'm getting very nostalgic for the good old days, now. We should start a remember the hippies thread. Here's a funny story. A few weeks ago, Fisher and I made 60 heart shaped cookies for an unschoolers Valentine party in the park. I iced them with pretty pink and white icing and then drew big red peace signs on them. I thought it was great - Peace & Love! I was surprised when some of the young moms thought I was making an offensive political statement. But then another mom said "oh no, Fish's mom made these - you know, the older hippie lady".

What is an "unschooler"? Sorry if I should know this or it's painfully obvious. I'm about 60 hours behind in sleep!

I hadn't heard this name until recently either. It's another approach to home schooling that is completely student driven. It works great for some families. I have a more modified approach for my children but it is still less rigid than some home schoolers. This weekly park day is a mix of all flavors of home schoolers, really, that is lots of fun. BTW, why are you behind on sleep?

I'm in the one fridge category too!!!!! We used to have another one on the porch (indoor porch) but it drove DH nuts. And he would never allow us to have a freezer - his Mom had a freezer (well, still does) but she stores old newspapers in it - THAT drives him nuts!!!!!! I think he's afraid of that factor - besides, I don't know how to actually utilize a freezer. BUT another refrigerator I know EXACTLY what to do with.
