Stove woes

We're having some appliance drama. We ordered a new stove to replace our dated one that cooks way too hot. (By the way - I must be getting old because the thought of getting new appliances is really exciting to me - a few years ago I never would have cared about a new stove!) It was delivered last Saturday and the delivery/installation guys left it 5 inches out from the wall and said that was the best they could do.

Including the oven handle it was sticking out 7 inches! Not okay.

It turns out there was a metal 'anti tip device' nailed into the ground that needed to be removed and the installation guys just didn't bother. So when Josh came home we had to reinstall it ourselves.

Then on Wednesday night I noticed the interior finish on the bottom of the oven was cracking and coming off - I've only used the oven twice!!!

We went back to Lowe's yesterday to see if they can exchange it and of course the item is sold out - even the floor model. So now we're waiting for a floor model from another store and the guy basically told us its not high priority so who knows how long it will take.

You're probably thinking we should just pick a different stove but I looked at all the electric ceramic top stoves they had and ours is still the only one I like.

So we wait.

Rage against the machine. It's all you can do.

-Ok, when did you get a dog?? He is adorable.
-Is Josh growing out it hair? I actually think he can pull it off.
-What kind of camera do you use? Your blog is great and you have such good photos.
