Oh, I soooo know how you feel. Mine broke over the weekend. It was my first machine, at least 8 years old and was very inexpensive, so having it repaired would cost as much as (if not more than) it's worth. So I'm in the market for a new one... what kind do you have and do you like it?
OH NO! That is the worst! Hope that you can get it fixed soon. I know how I would feel if mine broke.
I love to hear what you have to say! I try to respond to as many comments as possible, mostly via email. If you have a question and your email address is not attached to your google profile, I will respond here in the comments.
