Ms. Fix It Strikes Again

Oh, how I love to take broken things apart and hope I can get them working and back together. In todays episode of Ms. Fix It lets talk about my kids shower. For about 2-3 weeks now it has been broken. They came to me one day and said it would not turn on. Fortunately they were able to use my shower but before I ventured into their bathroom they had to clean it up.

Finally, I looked at it tonight and found a cracked something or other in the knob. It was some type of cylinder that slips of some other part. This meant the knob didn't secure firmly around theother part so when you turned the knob instead of turning the other part with it the knob just slipped around the other part. Um yeah, I went to plumbing school!! NOT.

I couldn't find any glue and yes I even tried nail glue but it would not hold. Alas, rubber bands are your your friend people. I fit the cracked piece back in place and wrapped a rubber band around it as many times as I could. Everything is screwed back together and ta da, a working shower.

I Am Still Here...

Kind of. Let me just say I miss getting on here and chattering away in my own little bubble about whatever I want. I miss reading all of the blogs by everyone else and have just recently started to catch up. You know the 101 in 1001, well #29 (get a job) has pretty much put everything else to a grinding halt. I am determined to get back to it though. JUST DO IT!!! is what I always say. So I am stopping with the I am tireds, I don't have time, blah blah blah and getting back to it. I can't let life pass me by.

I miss you all and hope you have been doing well. Maybe a nail polish post soon!!! Yea!!!!
