Did I mention my oven is broken, and they no longer make the part that it needs? I thought I was going to have to buy a new one, but today I lucked out. Walking up from the street I passed my neighbor's unit, and all his kitchen appliances were sitting outside, including a matching oven (all units got the same stuff when they were built 10 years ago). Turns out he just bought all new stuff for his kitchen. I asked if I might do some scavenging and he said fine, so I grabbed a screwdriver and salvaged the part I needed from his old oven. And I only bled a little bit. Now I can fix the darn thing, and I won't need to replace it, for now at least.

I'm still wiped out from my trip. Time for bed.

We just swapped the circuit board, and I'm running the oven up to see if it works now. Fingers crossed (and not bleeding at all)...

Handy with tools? Well, the right ones I guess =)
