This year like last year we decided to come to our beach place and spend the New Year! We had such a wonderful time last year just relaxing and decided to do it again... How fun spending time at the beach?? This year Emily wanted to bring a friend, so we let her!
We came down and spent Thanksgiving at the beach. That was the last time we have been down! We arrived Tuesday afternoon the 29th. Emily and her friend were walking the dogs while Steve and I brought some stuff in. As soon as I walked in the door, there was this terrible smell, and noticed the lights were out. I made the mistake an opened the fridge. What a mistake that was..... There was this smell that would knock down a coroner... We called the electirc company to find out what was going on.... Everything was fine on their end, so now what do you do?? We found the "box" outside and had to reset it, and bam we had lights. Easy problem to fix...
The electricity had been out for about a month we determine which ment the fridge had been without power as well... We had to throw out all of our food.... I'm not sure if any of you have had the pleasure of throwing out rotten food before, but the smell is gross... I'm talking makes you gag. After the food was thrown out, I had to clean, and get the smell out... I used vingear, bleach, tilex, baking soda, and candles, but nothing seems to work. (I did not use all of that at the same time.) Any help from y'all or advise anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
I will say my fridge/frezer are very clean now, but the smell is still there. I had to take a picture of my frezer. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't take pictures?
Here's the frezer all cleaned out with a candle burning in it!!!
The candle didn't help!
What can you do? We went to the beach to get away from the smell...
Emily running for fresh air!!!
After we left the beach we went shopping!!! Shopping is a great way to leave your problems behind, right? Nothing a new pair of shoes and some jeans can't fix!
The smell is not completely gone, but I keep cleaning.
I hope this is not a sign of what is to come for the New Year!!!
Everyone enjoy your New Year and be safe!
