About six weeks ago, our 15-year-old range gave up the ghost. I ordered one from Best Buy which was supposed to arrive last week--but didn't. Now they are having issues tracking it down. Since September we've been making do with the gas burners which still work and a toaster oven. Today I went back to Best Buy, cancelled the original order, and ordered a different one for delivery on Saturday. They seem very short staffed. Another gentlemen was also in the appliance section and said he'd been waiting 20 minutes for someone to help him. I finally rounded up a couple of staff, but I'm fondly remembering the days when staff would follow you around and try to help. Cross your fingers that this one actually comes.
I withdrew a bit more money from DD's 529 to help with the tuition bills, bought some Halloween candy which I'm trying hard to resist, and picked up the last load of seasonal veggies from the CSA. Excited to try a new recipe for a trio of vegetable salads like the ones I remember from Germany--a carrot, a beet, and a celeriac one. I may even make the cucumber one too.
School is busy, but it's midterm.
