Toilet trouble



Funny/sad story time. So, a few Saturdays ago Adam came up with the brilliant idea of "fixing" our toilet. It was "wobbly"--not enough that myself or anybody else could notice or care about-- but I guess it bothered Adam, so he and his brother Cody decided to be manly and fix it themselves. What was meant to be a "quick fix" turned into a mini disaster. I don't quite know all the proper plumbing/toilet terminology, but this is basically what happened: Cody and Adam shut the water off and took the toilet off of the ground. The wax ring wasn't good anymore, so Adam set off to Ace Hardware to get another one. While he was gone, Cody got a little too excited and took a crowbar to the flange (the plastic thingy that hooks into the ground) and completely destroyed it, which caused a huge mess. Anyway, four hours, three Ace Hardware trips and numerous swear words later (just kidding!), they finally finished. :) It was so funny and sad! Elizabeth (my sister-in-law) and I felt so bad, so we were good wives and made them cookies.

Oh my! Don't you just love when husbands think they can fix everything. Much to my frustration, however, I think Dev actually can. What a butt - sometimes I just want him to mess something up so I can laugh like any other good wife would do. :o)

Oh your blog is SO cute! (not surprised) I'm glad to have another "Enchanted" friend! i love that movie! i could see it again and again! Love the toilet trouble! Daniel is like that too and even if he does get it done it takes 5 hours instead of his promised 2.

very funny. Our landlord had to fix the toilet in our friends apartment downstairs because their son stuck a clip in it and tried to flush it.
