This year started full of hope and anticipation and it is leaving like the bastard motherfucker it turned out to be. I know this year has been a hell of a lot worse for many than it was for us but I still am happy to see it end. It seems this year just threw every curve ball in its arsenal at us and isn't going to stop until the very end. Office closings, new car payments (because BOTH vehicles died), shitty or nonexistent  pay raises, looming surgeries and on and on and on. GAH! I would say 2017 can't possibly be worse, but we all know that isn't true and I don't want to jinx myself. BUT on the plus side, we all survived the holidays. We have a roof over our heads, food in our pantry's and are in relatively good health so we will keep counting those blessings and hope for a prosperous 2017. Oh and check out my epic Christmas cheese plate.

Humble Pie

So, I FINALLY got a service technician out here to look at my oven. Turns out the idiots who installed it didn't do the LP conversion properly. Not only did they do it wrong the first time but they also couldn't figure out they did it wrong when I called them to check it. MORONS! The service tech who came today took all of 5 minutes to figure out the problem. Now I feel bad for screaming at all those telephone operators at LG. Their customer service really is horrible but after a week and a half of jumping through their hoops, my oven appears to be OK. It did take about 2 hours of scrubbing to get the soot off the inside of it. There is still some but I got 95% of it off. I am exhausted now.

Life is NOT Good with LG

So, my brand new LG oven got red tagged by the gas company this week. The convection oven was producing soot and carbon monoxide. The gas company checked the installation and deemed it a manufacturing defect. It is still under warranty so I called Sears since they sold it to me, who then said I had to call LG directly. LG is the WORST appliance company to deal with regards to service. I had to call them 3 times for authorized service providers to repair it and none will travel to where I live. So, now They are supposed to take 3-5 business days to find somebody to fix it. If that doesn't work then I don't know what will happen. They will likely stall me until the warranty runs out in February. I should have listened to that sales kid and bought American! Next time I will! FUCK YOU LG!

I should mention that the oven is a double oven and I can still use the top oven BUT the ham I bought for Christmas dinner won't fit in it. Thankfully I have wonderful neighbors who will let me use theirs if I need to. Still, FUCK YOU LG!
