Would love to have an over-the-stove, but that would have required more trouble and $$ than I could manage.
"Inverter Turbo Defrost" works quite well. It stops before the food is completely defrosted, which is much better than starting to cook it. There are enough instructions, that I keep the manual on top of the MW. We put ours on Ikea shelving. We don't have any spare counter space.

Hoping today will come to an end!!!! Spent over 2 hours at the clinic to get The Pill, my washing machine decided to die on me, my daughter came home from her dad with lice (wonder if anyone will notice if he goes missing?!) this is only the 13th time it's happened in 2 yrs "aargh" and the list just goes on and on and on.......
It doesn't help having PMS from hell either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your daughter should not go to her Dad's until he can show he has gotten rid of the lice in his house. Is there any oversight to visitations? If there is, it needs to be brought to their attention.

At the moment he gets away with paying half the agreed child support, refuses to admit that the lice problem came from him and Caitlin says half of their children had shaved heads this holiday because of lice.
I've been to see a lawyer but they can't do much unless there is abuse of some kind and if I want to fight it I will have pay money I don't have right now. Just wish he could be reasoned with

As far as I am concerned it is abusive, having to use lice shampoo, etc 12 times in 2 years. Your daughter is being poisoned.

(((Hugs Snip))). You shouldn't have to put up with that and neither should your daughter.

Thanks Tax Luckily Caitlin is nearly old enough to decide what she wants to do about it herself. I hate sending her when she doesn't always want to go.
