I am filled with squee and impatience [Mar. 24th, 2011|08:21 pm]
Zoethe
After waiting rather a long time, we are finally doing some updating on the kitchen. And today we made the first real money-spending step: we ordered our new stove and over-the-stove microwave. And it's going to arrive next Friday! I'm beside myself with glee and can't wait for it to get here!

I just keep looking at it. It's so pretty!!!

Is it me, or does it look extraterrestrial? :-)

In all my years I've never bought a range, just lived with the ones that were present. It's SO amazing to me!

Dude, I was so excited when I got my new stove a couple of years ago and it was just a run of the mill ceramic top electric range. I can imagine how excited you are with this sweetness coming!

I stuck with an elderly and semi-broken one for a while so that I could get what I really wanted.

Smart! We don't cook enough to get crazy about stoves, but just you wait until my washer needs replacing. ~_^

I feel guilty because I haven't been cooking much lately, but I do, and I will!

It will be purple, by the time we're done. At least that is the plan right now.

Shiny!

Of course, I had to mouse over everywhere to magnify it! :D I like the knobs, how they have a red dot to show which burner they go to, because I've had mine for many years and I still forget which is which sometimes.

I have so much envy. Or jealousy. Whichever is the one where I want what you have, but I want you to have it too.

Yeah.

I am very happy. It's the first time in my life I get to actually do this.

Very happy for you, and as I said elsewhere, jealous of anyone who has a gas range, much less an uber-cool one like that. Enjoy the cooking, enjoy the eating, enjoy the shiny coolness. Most of all, enjoy the love that goes into feeding yourselves.

I feel bad for anyone stuck with electric cooking. We will definitely enjoy, and if you're ever in Cleveland, I'll cook for you!

I don't know that my travels will ever take me to Cleveland, but I'm honored by the offer, and hope someday I can accept it.

And don't feel too bad for me, as my electric range is sort of a self-imposed exile. I could replace it with gas, but that would lead me down the slippery slope to a full-on kitchen remodel, so I forbear.

I can understand the hesitation. I won't even try to Borg you into joining us. ;-)

Wheeee! The kitchen gets so much use that overhauls there will get to be enjoyed on a daily basis :)

It definitely will make it more appealing to be in there, I'm very excited!
