Tuesday and a little late getting here.

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

My morning was so messed up today. Larry mentioned to our electrician at coffee this morning about our new Microwave keeping flipping the Breaker switch off, so they came to check it, and of course at first it wouldn't do it, and they said there was nothing wrong with the plug-in or the wiring that is had to be the microwave, and he tried it again and it totally fried itself to the point you could hardly put your hand on the top as it was so hot. Glad they were here when that happened. So I gather up the papers that came with it and off we went to Wally World, to see what I could do with it. They asked me if I just wanted to replace it and I said a definite NO. and they gave me cash back, then off to the appliance store to buy another one. Cost more than twice as much but I know that this one will be a much better item. So beware when buying at Walmart, as I had it only 2 months and it could have burnt the house down. Very shoddy quality, guess you do get what you pay for, and never again.

Then off to the grocery store, almost out of milk, and hubby was out of pop corn and ICE CREAM. then to the farm store to get Merlin's hip and joint pills, and to Arby's to pick up a couple Roast Beef sandwiches and home by noon. Now this afternoon a guy is suppose to be coming to get the sheep and Jerry the goat buck. So that all said I didn't get back at setting Missions for the day. as everything this morning was messed up. Tomorrow my only Mission will be to take it easy as I am having that broken off tooth pulled and he warned me it is going to be a rough one and also a broken filling replaced. So I am not going to be doing much tomorrow and better be think about what I am going to eat for a couple days, ad I know it will be soup for me.

So you all have a GET day and take care. Linda

    Good luck with the dental work. I think 2019 was my year for my teeth to start giving up on me. I remember my fathers doing that suddenly with cracking and breaking. But I really like my dentist, so at least I can be confident he will guide me in the best direction.

    Glad you got a better microwave this time! We had to get a new one and I am surprised how much noisier it is than the old one. But I wanted a white one and that is not in style now. Rather limits what I could have. Oh well.

    Yes, good thing your electrician friend was there when the microwave went. Hope the sheep and Jerry get picked up without a fuss. Take it easy with all the dental work being done today.

    I hope your trip to the dentist goes smoothly, and I'm glad you bought a better microwave oven. You shouldn't have to worry the breaker tripping. Take care.

    Glad you found out before a fire happened. Funny you should say that because that is why we had to get a new microwave also. Remember I asked you about what one you bought? Well I did some research on microwaves and found out that not all are created equal. We ended up buying a toshiba, which is such an improvement and no more tripping the breaker. We also had an electrician out and but we did have some other problems as well with that particular outlet. It was too small for running a microwave.

    Glad you got everything taken care of and I'm wishing you all the best tomorrow at the dentist. I'd just dread going to dentist.

    My walmart boycott withstanding, I still only buy what Consumers Reports recommends. Never had an appliance be bad from them. I read it at the library since I no longer have my subscription.

    That sure must of been scary for you; good thing the men checked on it. Probably why my hubby will only buy top of the line tools and appliances, and only after he's checked with the Consumers Report. Hope your day with dental surgery goes smoothly for you, Linda. emoticon emoticon

    Good luck tomorrow. I feel for you. Don't like dental work.

    glad that you found the problem w/the microwave and got your money back. I lov it when you bring back a faulty appliance and they ask if you want to exchange! Ummmm . . . . NO! LOL
