It seems like into my life, a freakin’ hurricane landed. As usual, it’s the little things that pile up, some of which I am ill-equipped to fix.
I am….not the most handy person around the house. Sure, I’ll figure out some quick-fixes every now and then. But the drawer that I had “fixed”? That completely broke. And a couple of weeks ago, the doorbell stopped working. There are cracks alongside the bathtub edge, and I fear I have water damage in the walls, so that has to be checked by someone other than me. The spigot outside needs to be replaced, and several dead bushes need to be dug up.
As usual, I will try my best to fix things around here, but I realize some things are beyond my control. But the drawer? Oh yeah…. THAT has to be fixed before my parents and sister come to visit. So, I’m looking up information as to how to go about it. That’s what the internet is for!!
And after the huge storm that passed through last night, I shudder to think what lies in store for me outside on the patio 😉

Hmm….maybe you should request from Santa a tool belt and a good household how-to book for Christmas this year. Maybe even get a tool belt with a handy machete sheath attached to it. 😀

My tools and tool box are pink, if that tells you anything!

Well, we’ll be down there soon. If I can help out let me know.

Beat that drawer into submission, Aggie! 😉

Tape the drawer front onto the cabinet, put things in drawer in box, hide in closet.
Of course, it’s a lot more fun to fix things with a cordless drill and construction screws, but baby steps.

Ooooh…I do have a cordless drill and screws!!!
I also have 911 on speed dial.

I offer my services as an experienced digger-upper of unwanted plants. 😛 I take ’em dead or alive!
I’ve been told I’m pretty good with drawers, too…only the kind you wear, hehehe.

I’m available to help out on the chores, but the airfare’s gonna be a right beyotch to cover. :p

Heh. Got photos of the drawer situation? Must have more information than “iz borked”.
BTW, LOVED that little shower we got last night! Not many places can rival a good Texass thunderstorm (been through a couple of Washington State electrical storms that were….inspiring)!!

Yeah, we got hammered down here, too 🙂

Yeah, it was a pretty wild night….wait….we’re still talking about rain, right?
