The microwave broke. The door closes just fine, already checked that, but it seems maybe the motor in there gave out. I'll fiddle with it after I'm done with work for the weekend and check out some videos on repair, but I'm thinking:
Maybe try to go microwave-free for a while?
Hell, our family didn't get one until I had already moved out. It's certainly possible to live without one.
And right now is a good time for using the oven a lot. It's ice cold out, drafty in here, and my apartment has gas included in the rent, so it's free for me.
Might go check out thrift stores for toaster ovens.
But I think I might try out the No MIcrowave lifetsyle and see how it goes.
The increased counter space will be nice. I cook all my foods and there's not much space to chop sh*t.
