A toilet, and a sewing machine: these are both things I worked on repairing today. I was successful in repairing the toilet. However, I don’t have the specialized knowledge I need to safely work on Marcia’s quilting machine. If I could have fixed this, it’d save us 50 or a hundred bucks. But I can do ever so much more damage than that … so I tried, and then I stopped.
I also had a fair amount of outside-of-business-hours work this week; Some yesterday, and more of that starting around 0645 this morning and going on for a couple of hours. That’s my excuse for not doing any yardwork at all. But since I can rarely talk about work, it’s boring here as a topic.
