What on earth I'm I gonna do without my microwave, this sucks?!
Can't afford to fix or replace it :(
Does it show the time? Is there a fuse or circuit breaker somewhere that could be causing the problem? Is it on a power bar with a circuit breaker and/or an off switch?

The light still goes on, it shows zero as always but when I push the buttons nothing happens. The cover over the buttons looks a bit loose, like liquid went in there. This is a nightmare to me, we use our microwave a lot. I heat leftovers for the kids. I also have to heat our food at different times since we don't always eat together.

Bummer. My microwave died a few weeks ago (I have a new one, now.) and I hadn't realized how often we use our microwave. Stirling said it was like Gilligan's Island. You sure do miss it when you don't have one.

I'm fully aware of how much I use mine Hopefully whatever's in there dries up. I tried it this morning and it worked once but now it's stopped again!

Just tried again and it's working again, hopefully it stays that way.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that it keeps on working.

The urge to kill is once again very strong. It almost 11 p.m. I have been trying to reach Son #1. Two cell phones and a landline. He hasn't been answering any of my calls. Did he have another heart attack? Is he in the hospital, What about Teddy? I have been trying to reach him since six this evening. I am a nervous wreck.

He was sleeping and eating supper. Didn't feel like talking on the phone. Give me the heart attack. KILL!!! I was going to get dressed and go to his house at this hour.

Sorry, Dawg. My day was pretty crappy, pain-wise. The knee replacement isn't coming any too soon.
