You never really notice how much you use your oven till you can’t anymore. Especially when you are stuck at home with sleeping children and trying to avoid cleaning something. You can’t decide to bake cookies or even get a head start on dinner in an effort to further your procrastination while appearing busy. Boo. Where is that easy bake oven?
In fact, while there are lots of meals you can cook on the stove top, there are lots more you can’t cook up there. So sad.
I guess I should mention my oven is broken. It won’t heat. It’s really quite a travesty. Not because I like my oven, it’s pretty ugly and outdated. (Yet not outdated enough to be vintage and cool.) Today the oven repair guy is coming out. For $58.50 he will assess my problem sometime between 8 am and Noon. Then, depending on what is wrong with it, we get to pay even more money and have it fixed, or get a whole new oven. I’m wishing we would have purchased that home warranty right about now…Thanksgiving is in how many days?
Part of me would love to get a new oven. Because if we are getting a new one, it’s going to be nice. Reasonable, but nice. However, I don’t want to blow $800 on an oven right before Christmas. That’s just no fun. This could be the first year in 9 years of marriage where we aren’t scratching our heads trying to figure out how we’ll pay for Christmas. I don’t want to mess that up.
I know, I know, I bet we could find a sweet 0% interest if paid in full by one year finance deal, which would totally rock. It’s the hassle of it all.
Either way, I guarantee I’ll be rejoicing. Whether my new oven looks like this:
At least Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners will be saved! Thanks for working so hard to pay for stuff like this hubbs! We appreciate you and your sugar-daddyness.
