Oh no!!!

We got up this morning and Junior wanted oatmeal, so Em said she would microwave him some. The microwave started making weird noises and wasn't heating up. Further inspection led me to decide that the microwave was broken.

The look of panic on my children's faces. The sick feeling in my stomach as I was thinking "now I have to cook?". Abs yelled out "What will we do, we have no way to eat now till Daddy comes home!".

Okay, I know I microwave a lot, but she thinks I CAN'T use the stove?

And to my defense, if I had made the oatmeal this morning I would have heated up water in the kettle on the stove. Much easier to cook more than one bowl at a time that way!

But of course, the first stop today on our list is the px for a new microwave.

I know it isn't funny on your end, but i couldn't stop laughing. Kids say the dardest things.

As we sit here and just laugh our heads off, it reminds us that we went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago. We also have a stove but I prefer to use the "George Foreman Grill" That I have. I can cook hamburgers, chicken, salmon and various sandwiches on it.

I am so sorry, I shouldn't laugh. But I did. A lot actually!!

Hope you can fix/replace it ASAP!

Hard to think about life with microwaves. But I hope the new works out.

HA! great minds think alike. The other day I told dash-1 his nuggets (gourmet I know) would take time I had to heat up the oven and he looked at me blankly. I explained it was the big thing in the kitchen not frequently used.

and as long as your phone is still working take out can still be delivered!

That is hysterical...the look of horror. Although, I have to admit, I might have starved without my microwave during deployment.

I have bought a new microwave too in the recent past. I thought it had died. we freaked out and went and bought a nice new shiny one. I love it by the way. COme to find out the outlet needed to be reset. I still have the microwave.
