Water, Water Everywhere...
The basement flooded!
It went well. (See previous post.)
The delivery guys DID do the installation. I offered my 3rd born son (the only one home) as bribery.
Sam did the first load of laundry (his own) and then spent the next forty minutes trying to “level” the vibrating, rocking washing machine.
By eyeballing it.
We don’t have a “level.”
Life lesson: You cannot level without a level.
Hell, we no longer have a wrench, vice-grips (my tool knowledge is increasing), a decent screwdriver or various other essential tools we will probably need – someday. (Whatever they might be.)
Dirty laundry is piling up.
I will be paying a visit to the hardware store.
Any suggestions as to other tools I should buy that I don’t know I need – yet?
Instead of cursing, “g-damned washing machine, bloody hell no tools, f*ck it all…” (I did that yesterday) I shall remain level-headed (hah!) and look on the bright side.
The dryer works just fine.
And my kids are THE BEST.
Have a nice weekend…
