Here I am, at the height of the baking season, and my oven has just died. It has been going for a long time...the digital display wouldn't light up, the temperature knob was broken off and I have been using needle-nosed pliers for two years to turn it on and off, and the thermostat was off by about 100 degrees. But now it cannot be turned on at all without going up to 500 degrees.
This is not good timing. Christmas expenses aside (which we keep moderate), we bought a tractor this summer, we just replaced our crashed computer a few months ago, and our considerable property taxes are due in the new year.
Okay, Blessed Mother, it's not my money, it's yours. Now ask St. Joseph to find me a good deal on a new oven, and please, be quick about it!!
