It's the only way the fridge is going to get cleaned out around here.

Poor Peter. His 6th birthday is on Thursday and he was supposed to have his friend party tonight. We don't ever do big parties around here but he was excited anyway.

Jennifer's four kids were coming for pizza and cake and her two boys, Cody and Colton, were going to spend the night.

But Peter was very sluggish yesterday and was up a lot of the night with a cough. This morning he had a fever and basically never moved from the couch.

So after lots of tears, I called Jennifer and told her we were going to have to reschedule.

And right after I got off the phone with her, I realized that a little milk had been spilled in the refrigerator. I cleaned it up and made lunch.

It was right after lunch that I realized the little bit of spilled milk was really A LOT of spilled milk.

It had run into two of the drawers and behind two of the drawers. It had even puddled up underneath the bottom drawer.

So I spent part of the afternoon cleaning out the refrigerator and Peter spent most of the day curled up in a ball on the couch. Not exactly what either one of us had planned for the day but when life gives you spilled milk, you might as well clean out the fridge!

I'm so sad for Peter. But, at least you can reschedule and it will be just as good on another day.

Good job figuring out about the milk so fast! Your excellent attitude about it is inspiring me to go have a look in my own fridge! :)

Oh no, poor guy. It always seems like everyone gets sick when you have big plans to do something fun. I hope he feels better soon.

That's what motivates me to clean out the fridge.

Aww..poor kid! Hope he gets his party soon, and hope he feels better even sooner!

And...would you like to come clean out my fridge? It needs to be done, and I don't really want to do it..

I hope Peter is feeling better and gets to have his little party soon.

That exact same thing happened to me, only it was cow blood from defrosting ground beef. I thought it was just a little puddle, but soon discovered it had dripped onto every shelf in the fridge. It really does take stuff like this to get me to clean my fridge, lol.

Poor guy- I hope you were able to reschedule to sometime very soon!

Beth, I will be praying for Brian and Angie. I have learned in my book my Stormie Omartian that the prayer that changes things includes praise and God is so Good, I am praising Him and believing right now for Brain's complete healing in Jesus Name.
