Frustrating days

The last couple of days have been somewhat frustrating.  No major problems, just frustrating.

We were supposed to get some insulation in our attic on Monday, to take advantage of some government grants and save some heating and cooling costs.  The contractor showed up, and didn’t like the way something was wired.  Fair enough.  A bit of an aggravation to fix, but no big deal.  After the kids were in bed, I spent about an hour trying to get things together.  And, not finished at the end of it.  Another trip to the hardware store.

Day 2.  I got up and got the box in place, but still have some things to get together.

The next job was plunging a toilet.  Never a fun time.  This job really went crappy.  As I plunge away, the water starts to move.  Around the bottom of the bowl.  The seal failed.  Oh, crap.

IT STINKS, says Tate.  Really.

Of course, we had to leave in about five minutes for the kids’ program at church.  I mop up the mess, and pull out the shop vac to clean up the rest of the mess.

It could be a whole lot worse.  At least it was mostly water.

Hopefully the rest of the week is a bit better.
