So, here we are, one fridge down, deciding what to do. After doing that first round of initial internet shopping, we took a break for the Zoo play day. While at the wine shop, we noticed they were selling a 2-3 yr old commercial grade wine chiller for $300 (retail over $1000). Great deal, but there’s two facts to keep in mind. 1) we just became Mr. and Mrs. Wine Lush, thus still have wedding expenses to pay off and 2) more money on wine fridge = less money to spend on wine. Hmm. So we think about it. Less than 2 days later we call, wine fridge is sold. We are saddened but are confident we will get past it. Many more wine fridges that need our love.
Then….she calls and said the person who was supposed to buy it didn’t show up and do we want it. I tell her I’ll get back to her soon. Excitement builds, but Mr. Lush is at work and I can’t get ahold of him. What to do? Being recently married, we haven’t quite worked out the rules of acceptable independent spending. Yes, we should talk about spending $300. But, we did already, right, last week when we decided to get it? But a week later- does that still count? Argghh. Then she calls again and says that someone else wants it and we need to make a decision pronto. Oh no. What to do!!!
Don’t fret- we did indeed end up getting the fridge and are still married, so it’s a happy ending.
