Thursday Thoughts

When It Rains, It Pours
Bill and I have just gotten over the sticker shock at having to completely update our breaker box. The other day the oven light went out in my top oven. (The bottom oven light has been out for years but I seldom use that oven so it hasn’t bothered me.) The problem is that in order to reach the oven lights, Bill needed to remove the doors.

The good news is that the top oven works fine. Our plan is to put our head in the sand until we return from AZ in May. At that time we will decide what to do, which will likely be to replace the ovens. In the meantime, my bottom oven is doorless. Sigh…..
