    gcvmom Here we go again!

    I think it's finally died. I was able to reset it the last time it stalled out thanks to someone's helpful tip here. And even was able to coax it back to life using my trusty 1x2 stick that I use when it jammed periodically after that. But this time when I tried multiple times to hit the reset button, nothing. And then the reset button broke. :2dissapointed: And of course, all this happens while I'm trying to clean up before we go to the beach, direct the kids to get their lunches made and gear packed and stop fighting, and then my period hits, followed by major cramps, and suddenly I feel like my medications aren't working and I'm ready to blow a gasket or take the head off the next kid who looks at me the wrong way. Sigh.

    Hopefully husband feels confident enough to attempt installing a new one himself. We'll have to wait a few weeks, but it's not the end of the world. Just felt like it for a little bit. :highvoltage:

    Honestly, it's NOT very hard. So don't worry too much!
