Sometimes you just have to laugh…

September 28th, 2009

On Sunday morning, I stumble into the kitchen for my morning coffee only to discover that my refrigerator door has been left ajar… In my groggy state, I stare annoyed at the spoiled milk… drink my coffee black… close the fridge tightly shut… and leave the house for my Sunday adventures…

Sunday night rolls around… I make a pb&h and continue to ignore the mess in the fridge… getting annoyed every time I open the fridge and the door refuses to shut… Monday comes and I call the maintenance department to let them know my fridge won’t shut properly… throw away everything that went bad…

The maintenance guy looks at the fridge for a few minutes and then, with a bemused smile on his face, shows me how the egg carton has gotten wedged in the door making it difficult to close unless you really slammed it hard…

honestly,  haha!

With school being so stressful and busy, there are moments when I’ve found, as many of my classmates would probably attest, you lose track of what is going on outside the law school bubble.  You become so absorbed in the competitive, workaholic environment that it is easy to forget other things… Thankfully, I have some wonderful friends and family who understand that and do a good job of keeping me centered but… When small things go wrong, such as the “broken” fridge, it reminds me that I need to laugh, not take life so seriously and remember that even though I’m in law school… I’m still allowed to have a little fun… occasionally… after my reading is done… haha!

Today I made the Tuscan White Bean and Garlic Soup from Giada’s Kitchen, which I won on a give-a-way from Debroah. The recipe is here. I halved it, adding an extra sage leaf. I made provolone grilled cheese to go with it. It was very good!  I’m going to submit this recipe to Joelen‘s Event,Tasty Tools, featuring Stock Pots.

    That’s hilarious… reminds me of first year, actually. Hurricane Isabella came through, and we had to evacuate. I cleared my stuff out of the fridge and was the first to leave. Well, two weeks later, I’m the first to return to find that none of my three apartmentmates had cleaned any of their food, and there had been a blackout the entire time. The milk was GREEN and super chunky, among other horrors. I had to tie a hanky around my face and chuck everything I could find, then go to target for bleach for the entire kitchen. For a while the apartment was seriously the Bog of Eternal Stench. So yeah. Law school fridge mishaps happen.

    Um. Let me know about the hotel you stayed at in Costa Rica, mmkay?

    Heh. Oh Ginny… That’s always the first thing you check. But then again I guess doctors think differently from lawyers… Kidding! :P
    And yes, I know how much your family is a great support system! ;)

    You know, I’m just saying, I’m so impressed that you continue to blog while in grad school. We’re trying, making a good faith effort this year (after a blog moratorium last year), but damn is it hard.
    And I can totally relate to the fridge episode. We had something similar with the gas on our stove … we were convinced the stove was broken because the flame was off but the whole duplex reeked of gas… then realized that the burner had been left almost-but-not-quite completely shut off for 24 hours. Embarrassing.
