Family Home Repairing

Well, this all started when I went to a bridal shower and people were talking about water bills and how the city sends you a nasty letter if you use more water than you should. One person mentioned that they had received one of these letters. She said it was due to a "running toilet". It made me recall that we have one of those. This is what we had to do so it wouldn't run all the time. However, all the water went out of the tank. So..............
Tom went to Home Depot and bought a kit to install in the toilet. Here he is working hard and doing it. I was impressed that he was reading the instructions.


Here is our newly repaired toilet. Oh, the joys and things that make us happy.
I also got into the "home repair" mode earlier and climbed a ladder and replaced two burned out lights.

2 light bulbs in one day? You go girl. I should be so ambitious! For some reason home repair really thrills me to. It's the little things that count right?!

My favorite line is: "I was impressed that he was reading the instructions." Gotta love our men!!

Oh, that's great that you documented this Karen! It's great to see a part of daily life in blogs. Sorry I have been MIA lately! Once the kids start school again, I will be much better at being back in a routine! :)

I'm glad Tom is practicing on your toilet because we have one that has to be fixed in Arizona. We'll take care of that in Oct. By the way, it isn't running now but would if it was flushed.

Gee I need Tom to come fix mine - I've got 1 or 2 that run.
