No I did NOT buy an orange stove... but alas, I did have to replace my other one. It was only 5 years old, and it will be going to the dump this week-end. That part I mentioned earlier last week? Didn't work at ALL!!! Yes the part that was non-refundable if you installed it. OK for a minute let's get rationale: it was told to us that it was compatible... so how's it our fault the thing didn't work after all? Waste of $300.00, Purlolator courier and my husbands time.
So Sunday we went and bought a NEW stove. It came today. Finally I have an oven again. Right now it sits in the room between the kitchen and the family room. Not very functional there but oh well; at least I have it. Hubby will have to install it tonight. Wanna hear something funny? When we pulled out the old one, we noticed it was plugged into a normal outlet. Not the usual stove outlet. Well we figure, that's not good; the stove we are buying requires a stove outlet. So we go to the Home Depot, and I tell hubby to run in quick; it's miserable and I don't feel like hauling 3 kids into a store for 5 mintues. Jarrett comes back all huffy looking less than 2 minutes later. He tells me they won't let him in cause it's "Ladies Night."
OK seriously - ladies night at Home Depot? I had to laugh. I asked him what we needed, and said I'd go get it. I walk in and there is pink balloons, people handing out fresh coffee, and a table with goodies including this huge icing cake! Then this woman runs up to me with a hot pink piece of paper and tells me not to forget to enter the drawing! OKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKAYYYYYYYY. I just came in for an outlet. It was truly the strangest thing I've ever seen. Displays everywhere with women crowded around. And I'm talking 100's of ladies!! I got out as fast as I could. I mean that was too much estrogen for even me!! Jarrett said that was blatant discrimination: afterall it's not a private club store. He's just sore he didn't get to have any cake ;)
So tonight I'm using my rotisserie for the last time I hope (man that thing is a $#&*$# to clean), and I can resume a normal life of cooking. That and I'm sick of take-out. Wish us happy stove installation!
