    My wife just sends one of our service techs if she thinks it's taking me too long to get around to it.

        I've got a drip in a 30-year-old Peerless faucet. I suppose I'll have to fix it again. Heck, I've already fixed it three times! (Not bad for thirty years, I suppose.)

              The floor cleanout gasket leaks when the sewer backed up last summer.

              She said it's not supposed to do that is it?

              I said it's an early warning system telling me the sewer is about to back up

                It's always more fun to do work for other people than it is to do work at home. That's our problem and I really have a serious case of it. My "Things To Do" list is over 50 pages long now. This is the list of things to do at home.

                  I'm obviously not a plumber but our computer is running horrible at home right now and I cant seem to find the time to fix it even though i know exactly what needs to be done.

                      Master bath is prepped for gutting (water is valved off and shower trim is removed), just have not gotten around to the demo/re-frame/re-brick and frame garden window/fill in old roman tub/re-wire/re-plumb/re-rock/re-paint/re-tile part of it...
                      Sheesh - sounds like so much when written that way...LOL

                      (but I do happen to know a plumber who can do most of it when the time comes...*snicker*)

                        I`m lucky I guess as I did a total replumb on my house before I moved in, well except the kitchen faucet .
                        I had a new one but just never got around to doing the install. The dry-wall guys screwed it up before we moved in and it would turn any more. the other half was yelling at me that she was gonna call One Hour to install the new faucet if I didn't get it done. It took me a little over 1 1/2 years but 2 months ago I did the install.....rotflmao
                        All is well now

                          It's my parents that give me the most work. Every time I visit for family fun, it turn into a do list. I guess I owe my parents something for all the food I ate growing up.
