Yesterday our wall oven blew. It has broken twice before, recently, and after it broke this time, we decided to bite the bullet and replace it. I was frankly concerned the problem was in the electrical system because this time there was a foul odor when the heating element was turned on (the heating element never even got hot). Even more, we decided to take out the built in microwave (above it) and get a double oven. A double wall oven is not cheap, it will probably cost around $2000 and because we have a "custom install" we have limited options at even greater expense. Goodbye tax refund. It will be a couple of weeks until we get a new one so until then, lots of microwaving. I am actually really happy that we are getting a double oven (our current oven is 26 inches wide, it is a very small oven for Christmas dinner). I am a little bummed to be moving to a countertop microwave, but I think I would like the double oven better than a built in microwave.
Today, my two little girls woke up with their eyes glued shut with mucus. When I unstuck them, their eyes were unbelievably red. I had never seen pink eye before, but I had no doubt they had it. Stayed home from work and took them both to the doctor. My eyes are feeling itchy, but I hope it is just the power of suggestion.
So what next? I don't even want to know. Bad things are supposed to happen in 3s, right?
