Since moving into our house I have HATED our oven. The only big burner was too close to the knobs so you couldn't put a big pot on it. It was our only white appliance in our stainless kitchen, and a few weeks ago the towel bar fell off it. So... we decided to upgrade! We found an oven on Craigslist that needed some major elbow grease. It retails new for over $700, a guy posted it for $475. I offered $300. First he said no, then 6 hours later he changed his mind, e-mailed me, and sold it to me for $300! I spent about 3 hours scraping and scrubbing the glass top and stainless and now it looks like NEW! I figure $133 an hour is pretty good money!
The best news of all is that I think I will be able to resell our old oven on Craigstlist for $150, if the handle wouldn't have been broken a guy would have paid $200 today!

Every time that Matt trips over a toy, or has to pick them up, he complains that Jack has, "too many toys". Tonight while Matt was on the phone, Jack built a toy pile on the couch next to Matt. I think that he likes to taunt him!
P.S. Matt was on the phone with his friend Ian (who was Matt's best man) congratulating him on his engagement to his outstanding girlfriend Erin. Matt will be his co-best man in their wedding next summer! We couldn't be happier for them!
