Poop - My Oven Died!!

 Wouldn't you know, just as I was going to put cupcakes in the oven last night, our oven didn't turn ON! Grrrrrrrr. This is so frustrating! We rent, so we don't have to worry about paying for a new stove..But our landlords are a nice Indian family who live on the first floor of the house - and they have ZERO sense of personal space. They had a water drip in their part of the house a month ago, they called and asked DH to come look. He did then came home and made sure none of our pipes were leaking....well a few hours later the landlady called me to ask if she could come just 'make sure' when I agreed the ENTIRE family came storming into our house. Their kids, the husband, the wife. It was very awkward. They are constantly looking in our windows or making comments.....Oh and they are always making comments on how much stuff we own...seriously! We don't have that much, but there are ZERO closets in this apartment (except for our pantry). And we keep the dining table in the kitchen and use the 'dining room' as a storage/homeschool room. So now with this stupid oven, I'm sure they'll all come trooping in and make more comments all because they have an ancient oven in this apartment.

Why me??

 UGH!!! They just all trooped through my (now spotless) house and told me they won't even CALL anyone until Wednesday. What the heck am I supposed to do for dinner for at least 5 DAYS!

And I love that she was all, "well what did you do to make it break?" and I was all, "I tried to turn it on?"

 I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with this problem.  Our homeschool, low-budget life style is stressful enough without added difficulties.  Why not until Wednesday?  Do they know the days of the week and that today is Saturday?  LOL  Good Luck!
