...she said, as she checks off another round of fixes:

Replace cracked water glass inserts in kitchen cabs?


Replace pond pump?


Get water bell to work correctly?


Install Never MT endless soap into kitchen soap dispenser, prime for 4 hours, sucking, cleaning, pumping, determined to get it to work, only to realize it's not the new Never MT gizmo, it's the old gizmo, up under the top of the dispenser that isn't working. (This is after getting the soap up over 3 feet of tubing, but still 2" away from the top!)


Replace soap dispenser? (aha!)


Figure out if I can use the guts of the new dispenser in the old one 'cuz I like the curves of the old one better.

not yet, but I'm working on it.

Replace toaster oven.


Replace hinge on dishwasher door that just snapped to the floor one fine evening recently

hmmmm....might have to pull out some floor tiles to get to that.

Scrub kitchen floor tiles with bleach solution--first time in months!


Remove and wash slipcovers.


Drop wedding rings at the jeweler.


Make decision on whether to replace, reshank, or redesign rings due to their worn state. (Hence the repeated ring rash.)

need husband to co-partner in this delicate decision.

that would require a trip into WHollywood with him alongside me.

Have naked fingers while wedding rings sit at the shop for almost 3 weeks.

check. (irony still noted.)

Oh, and tomorrow I'll post pictures and tell you about my latest repair and the joys of learning code....

triple check.

Excuse me while I go and have a (celebratory) cocktail!

I believe I earned it.

Jerri said...

I hope you had a cocktail and a nap! How you could accomplish all that in less than 18 months, I'll never understand, but I hope it felt damn good!
