plumb crazy lady thinks she needs a sash
I fixed a minor toilet issue today...
The flush lever broke. No big deal, unless of course you are me, I had no idea how to fix it etc....
I am learning how to take a deep breath, and take apart things. It seems to be the only way I can figure out how to put things back together again. Great...
My son video taped me fixing the toilet, you can see here. I was not really intending to, and am not sure if it is all that instructional. However I think it does show, that some things just sound like they might be huge projects when they are simple. (The video also reminded me of the project of painting the bathroom is left. that is the only room left and it needs to be done)
I did not grow up at my Father's knee watching him fix things. I am intimidated by mechanics. So the fact that i actually am able to fix anything amazes me. Thank God for the internets. Also a shout out to my friend RAVE, who actually googled fixing toilets as I was complaining about it on facebook.
Fixing stuff not my bag at all. I am beginning to think of making myself a SASH like Brownies get. I was never a Brownie, and I was sooooo jealous of little girls in Brownie uniforms. I might make myself a SASH, and make myself patches. Some military wives, can do it all with the grace and style...not me, I swear I would wear my SASH all over the place, even with my poorly designed patches.
"what is that one for?" Oh the baby's head exiting the womb, that one is laboring alone.
"what is this package of hamburger patch for?" Remembering to take meat out of the freezer.
Nope grace and being demure ain't my strong suit I am afraid.
I am learning how to build confidence in my abilities....and it is a good thing to know how it feels.
I am understanding what made The Collective feel like they were invincibile after learning to ride bikes!
