good riddance!!

have you ever loathed something...and had to see it every day. even make nice with it sometimes? but all the while...you're thinking evil mean thoughts about it.

that is how i feel about my stove/oven. I HATE IT. i've hated it since we looked at the house..

here's the caption from this photo on facebook...."the kitchen....the scary old stove will be replaced soon."

the date: may 20, 2008.

so from june 1st, when we moved in....to today, i have had to suffer with this ancient monstrosity. it burns the bottoms of cookies ALL THE TIME. the eyes on the cooktop? not level. which is AWESOME. and one time...a drop of cookie dough CAUGHT ON FIRE in it. burst into flame. and last week, while i was baking meatloaf...smoke started coming OUT OF THE EYES. not from inside the oven....just smoke. mysterious smoke.

then and there...the hubs and i knew it was time to take action. no more saving for the wedding...no more paying for our horrendous chimney we had to get taken off...it's go time for the stove.

well, my tumultuous relationship with this horrid machine IS OVER.

as of 8:15 this morning,

this is my new love. she's so pretty and shiny. she has special baking technology to keep a constant temp inside all the time, so cakes and pies and cookies and anything else will come out perfectly.

the flat top means NO MORE CROOKED EYES. omg. i am in heaven just thinking about it!!

now to get rid of the countertops and cabinets i hate too...

Nice! I can't wait to get rid of ours - it's this 1997 gas stove where the oven timer doesn't even work - so preheating it is a nightmare.

You have me laughing out loud at your disgust for your appliance!! I hate ours too. We rent so whoever was here before us burnt or chipped off something so they colored it over with black permanent marker! Classy!!!

Yay!!! I love adding new appliances/furniture to our home. It's amazing how one thing can truly brighten an entire room. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for new countertops and cabinets - I'm waiting on countertops myself!

Love your blog - just stumbled over here and I can't wait to read more.
