Hello! I hope you have wonderful plans today filled with good food and family!
I want to let you know that the faucet crisis was averted. Barely!
I went to the hardware store and bought a kit and when I got home and took apart the faucet I realized I have a ceramic type faucet, not a ball. So at this point I had to go back to the store and see if they had a kit that would fit.
Isn’t that the way it goes? They didn’t have one. So I bought a new faucet. That can’t be too hard to do either!
Then I tried to pull of the base of the faucet off and it would not budge! I would need crane! It was stuck. So I called a buddy, the same buddy that helped me change out my garbage disposal and he told me to go to another smaller plumbing store and they had my parts!
So with that and a wrench that I bought and the muscle that my friend brought over later I was able to fix my faucet for under $40.00~!
Can I just remind you how great Google is!
If you have something broken check here to see how hard it is before you just call some dude with baggy pants over to charge you $100.00 just to show up! Twice that on Thanksgiving Weekend I am sure.
Chances are, you can do it yourself if you have muscle! That was the only thing that I didn’t have and man, that miffs me!
Now I just have to to take back the faucet and the kit that did not fit. It’s all good!
Our plans are to stay home, have a small traditional dinner and watch the parade and dog show! The guy that hosts the show lives in my town.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
