Well, maybe that's a little overstated, but that's how it feels. Our microwave bit the dust two days ago. It's beyond weird not to be able to head up our leftovers in there. Hubby made Jello yesterday and barely recovered from having to heat the water in a pan on the stove!
We had this latest microwave for 8 years. It was a Panasonic. We had the first one for over 20 years. It was a humble Sears. We've only ever had the two microwaaves. In all those years without one, we managed okay. The new one won't arrive until the 24th. Eek!
