Today's Blog is Brought to you by the Letter A

At our place A is for Appliances.  We have mentioned them before but don't worry they still don't fail to give us more to talk about. Today, I'll give you the full tour of our appliances.
First, the oven.  As you will recall from a previous post I yanked the oven door off.  It is fixed now, however, the light no longer works inside. Our other stove story is Kat's ability to continually turn on the wrong burner.  I haven't noticed her do it lately though (but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen).  The oven is in good condition though other than the damage I caused.
Next up the microhood.  Probablly the newest appliance provided.  The only real problem with it is the light to light up the stove top.  If you hit it just right you can get it to stay on for a while, but usually I find it's not worth the trouble. Otherwise it works great, the microwave heats nicely and the vent works well (it's just a matter of remembering to turn it on).
Then there's the fridge.  You've heard about the fridge right? How we had one, it was leaky, so we got a new one. Kat loves it.  Well, other than the fact that we really don't have enough space for all of our food, the top shelf sometimes falls down.  It's a real pain in the butt. And as if a small fridge that falls apart wasn't bad enough we have it set below one (on a scale of 1-5, five being the coldest) and we still have ice forming in the back. Stupid fridge.
Now, the newest appliance troubles.  The washer.  It doesn't properly run the spin cycle which leaves clothes still soaking wet.  But we got the landlord on it.  He came and looked at it is going to try to fix it (good luck buddy, I'm pretty sure it is one of the first washers ever created)  or just get us a new (used) one. Can't wait to see how this turns out...
Finally we have our dryer.  I don't believe we've had any problems there.  It works, gets the clothes dry, nothing to complain about.  It's just a little ancient like the washer.
So there you have our appliance tour. Well except I have a small chest freezer- only a couple years old and works fine.

A can also be for application- as in job application, Kat and I are in job hunting mode these days.  I just completed my first teaching application! How exciting!

That's it for today. Adios.

P.S. I know no one ever would have seen that title coming and I'm sure nobody else doing the A-Z challege would use such a title.  I couldn't help it though, I love sesame street!
