Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk

Whoever coined that term never had to clean up a brand-new gallon of milk from their refrigerator. Yesterday Bob bought two gallons of milk to last us through the week. One leaked all over the entire fridge. We noticed milk dripping on the floor late last night.

What a mess.

I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. I have a great fear I missed some somewhere and it's going to stink to high heaven.

This morning we found a little milk on the floor, so I need to re-clean the gasket and small area. I need coffee first.

Yuck!

I hope that this is not indicative of how our school week will go!

Looking on the bright side, I guess I can say: I do now have a spotless fridge!

Yikes..the loss of that gallon of milk with dairy prices what they are...I'd cry a bit too.;-)

Oh no! I am glad that you caught it before you went to bed.

I thought of you this morning as I was organizing a kitchen cabinet. Next thing I knew I had cleaned and organized all the cabinets that held food. My kitchen just feels tidier(sp?). I know that you cannot see the order behind the doors, but I can feel it. LOL

Oy. It's a good thing you found it last night, although--and I know how this goes--it was a very long night for you.

A clean refrigerator is nice--but even nicer on your own cleaning schedule! :)

See, now, if you had been buying your milk-in-a-bag from Kwik Trip, you'd only have lost a half gallon.

We just had to do that because one of my kids (they both blamed the baby) spilled blueberries ALL OVER!
