Taking a shower when restoring a house is a necessity AND a luxury. This is why, even though only the yucky one is working, we are thankful to have ONE.
We are SO CLOSE to a new bathroom overall (it's a matter of days now) and our current things KNOW this. THUS, they feel no need to hang on to this life.
I went upstairs to slip into a little "water paradise" when, um, the handle broke off. (Seems to be a theme now.)
What to do now? The old shower is supposed to look like this:
But are we going to let a little thing like a handle keep us from our last couple of weeks in this shower?? Heck, NO! And are we going to waste a bunch of time trying to fix it when it is out the door anyhow? Heck, NO!
A trip to the old toolbox. One old wrench and....
Pull and turn at the same time...adjusting for the perfect water temperature...
...eh voila!!! Success!!!
Survival of the fittest. That's what this house is. Survival of the fittest...and of those who are desperate to be clean...
P.S. Later, the car radio knob broke off in my hand when I was turning it. I do believe it is a conspiracy.
