Every so often, the powers that be on YouTube suggests something that is both interesting to watch and so chill that it's a breath of air after a long day. (Previously it was a painting restoration specialist, and I'm not sure I've linked to him - I'll have to check.) Currently, it's Trenton & Heath's … Continue reading ITJFU: Trenton & Heath Shoe Repairs
I can't even. I got ready for my shower, stepped in, spun the knob... and then knob kept spinning. No water came out. There was COPIOUS swearing because I just DO NOT NEED another thing to fix and spend money on. So the GOOD news is that it broke with the water OFF. I washed … Continue reading I Broke My Shower
We called and had someone come out to check out and repair our furnace and air conditioner after all the, well, water. Water in them, water around them, water everywhere.

My husband thought it was the knock sensor, as this is a common problem with Subaru and had occurred on his Legacy Wagon. He went out and pulled it off to check it, and … Continue reading My Car Is Off to the Shop Again
Sunday was a busy day! We drove into Minnesota to look at a new car for my husband. And now, at least for a bit, we're a three Subaru household! All of them dark blue. The one in front is the new one, a 2006 Legacy Sedan, then my 2001 Forester, and my husband's 1997 … Continue reading My Husband’s New Car!
And I wasn't even doing anything fun to break it! I sat down on the corner of my bed, there was a huge crack, and it sank under me. Of course, my first assumption was that I was so fat I broke our bed - cue the waterworks. My husband, however, thought nothing of the … Continue reading And Now I Need a New Box Spring
