Vindictive homes

I think my house hates me. After doing the happy dance on getting a number on the new house that we could live with, I'm fairly certain that it decided it was jealous; the water line to the toilet suddenly developed a leak and the shutoff valve was non-functional. I swear, I'm going to be so glad to be rid of this place! Anyway, this morning I woke to find that my husband had turned off the water main to stop the leaking. Early morning is not the time to tell me that I have to find somewhere else to take a shower.

I finally convinced him that it wasn't leaking fast enough to require that the main stayed off, so I could take a shower at home (thank goodness that we repaired the broken main when we did!) and was on my merry way to work. He stayed home to fix the line and the valve, if he could. Turns out that the valve was an easy replacement, and the line just feeds off that. $11 and a ton of aggravation later, we have a fixed toilet. I'm so proud of him. He's come a long way from the man who was afraid to change out an outlet.

I can't wait for you to get rid of that place too...it has been such a source of frustration!

You know, it's been great for learning, but I think whoever put it together should be taken out and shot. There are some things that should last longer than 20 years.
