walls and leaks

 They did seal up the wall before leaving on Monday.  This is what it looked liked yesterday morning when I got to work.  I thought they were just closing up the window area, which is great for more storage area in the classroom, but at the end of the day, they were back at it putting the window area back in.  It will be interesting to see how much progress got done when I get there this morning.  I love watching other people work!  At least the temperatures were much cooler yesterday.
And my 'new' fridge has been having water on the shelf for about a week.  I thought it was from a water bottle that was on its side.  So, I moved that and the water was still there.  So, maybe it was coming from somewhere else, but where?  It was on a lower shelf, so maybe condensation from the milk or juice?  So weird.  I finally figured out that the water filter was leaking.  Can you believe this thing cost nearly $50?  Wow!  And you are supposed to change it every 6 months?  Um, when did I get the new fridge?  My son says last summer, I'm thinking 2 years ago.  I will have to check the blog to be sure but I haven't changed it since I got the fridge.  The guy at Lowe's says it probably is clogged and that's why it is leaking.  Talk about hard to get out!  The directions say to just twist it gently a quarter turn.  Sure, maybe if you have muscles and can wrench your arm at a really weird angle you can twist gently!  I had to use all my muscle and stand on my tip toes.  I'm 5'11" so I feel badly for short people!  It still leaked after putting it in the first time so I took it out and cleaned out around the inside and there were only a couple drops there this morning.  I don't want to have to call someone to come out.  The last fridge repair took about 4 calls to fix the ice machine when I first got the fridge.

Today's the last day of work for the year.  We've been having work days and so far it hasn't been as bad as I thought.  We've accomplished a lot and talked a lot about how we teach.  I've felt justified in the way I do things.  I've always been questioned by the other teachers and when we started looking at the way I give grades, everyone agreed that my way was the right way.  You have no idea how awesome that is.  I wanted to jump up and do a happy dance, but I tried to remain calm.  After 14 years of being told I was wrong, it was nice to finally have everyone say, my way is the right way. :)

They aren't cheap and I am so disappointed with my new fridge, less than 6 mos old and plastic pieces falling out of the ice dispenser!
