Freezer de-icing and Mopped Floor

Just have to show you my amazing accomplishment. This is a picture of my teeny weeny freezer. It is about waist high to a dwarf and has two shelves. You have to get down on the floor and lie on your stomach to see what you have in it. Defrosting it is the worse nightmare in the world, but it has to be done at least every two years because it gets so much ice in it and you have no room for two year old vegetables and other essentials. It also had ice caps trying to come out the door. Well, today was that day. The bottom tray that catches the dripping ice is about an inch high and runs over unless you are there every ten minutes or so to empty it. It is not possible to empty a shallow tray full of water without spilling half of it. At least it's not possible for me. Ice drips slowly, are you aware of that. I spent almost the entire day emptying the tray and mopping the floor. Emptying the tray and mopping the floor. Tonight I have a frost free freezer and a clean utility floor.
I knew you would be thrilled about it. I don't want to put the food back in it. I kind of like the empty look.
