Appliance Suicide

Our appliances have all entered into a suicide compact. First the dryer went out. After a couple weeks of tinkering and waiting, we got the part and Michael was able to fix it himself. Then a week later the washer stopped working. Three days later I woke up to a warm refrigerator and wet, leaking freezer. Then later that day, Zoe decided to see what happens when you cook a rice bag in the microwave for 99 minutes. Turns out, it is pretty spectacular.

Pretty sure Michael has developed a rational fear of unexpected middle-of-the-day phone calls from home.

So now we have a new washer! A newly repaired dryer! A new microwave on top of the fridge where little hands can't reach! And for some reason the fridge started working again -- we don't know why but we're just gonna roll with it for now.

We toasted our rice bag in the microwave too! Burned black char. It was our little boy's comfort object and I had to make a replacement quickly but ended up doing a lentil bag instead of rice. It has a lighter texture and holds heat just as well.

haha, and we kept our microwave on top the fridge at our last apartment.
