I called and got the part number for a replacement and found out that there was one on the shelf in a store in Provo. Marc stopped by to pick it up yesterday and then wowed us with his handyman skills last night. He may or may not have uttered a few choice words. (Incidentally, he remarked that it is most inopportune that the people who are least likely to have the necessary tools for a job are also those who are most in need of the necessary tools for said job. I don't know if that's true or not, but it made me laugh.)
I took the kids to Noodles & Co. on Tuesday night and then prepared a crockpot dinner on Wednesday. (It turns out, I don't really like Noodles & Co. But my kids love it. Of course, Lucas and Eva order plain, buttered noodles. But they also get root beer and cute carry-out boxes.)
Hooray for a working oven and range again! All freshly-cleaned, too.
That's just what I did – I baked bread! (cute kitchen towel a gift from my mother, obviously)
I baked cookies!
And, I made dinner on the stove. Considering that I made a big trip to Costco, taught piano and went to parent-teacher conferences, I was impressed with myself. And Marc.
