The Wrath of Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the fridge,
To give the poor children some milk:
When she came there,
The fridge was bare,
And so the poor kids had none.
Two days before Thanksgiving and my fridge looks like this! Grrrr.

And what about my oven?
Sure it's ugly, I'll give you that.

But when I went to the parts store today to get a new element for it they had to look up its model number on MICROFICHE! Remember those old things we used to do genealogy on? Apparently my oven falls into the "ancestor" file and it's still going strong, while our 3 year old fridge needs a new motor! Grrrr again!

Old Mother Hubbard
Went into Sears,
To give the workers a piece of her mind:
When she came there,
She kicked their behind,
And now the workers are scared.

HEHE! I always think I'm so hilarious at 11pm.

Good for you. I love that you have TWO ovens...a dream of mine someday. Hopefully, you have a place to go for Thanksgiving.

You can come to our house Lara, as we have plenty of room and lots and lots of turkey, etc.

Bring a couple of your famous pies and we will have a feast.

See you tomorrow!

Love, Mom and Dad

Thanks Mom & Dad. I wish you lived about 2000 miles closer so we really could be there!

24 hours later and the saga continues. I'm pretty sure we're on Sears' new least favorite customer list as we've spent 4 + hours on the phone with them over the last few days and it's really hard to stay nice after you keep getting put off from one helpless person to the next. I think Sears' motto is more like "We pretend to care, unless you have a problem, then you can go jump in a lake." The way we've been treated over the last couple of days has ensured that in the future we will bring our business elsewhere. Ugh!
