It’s labor day, so we labored and then we played.
Steve was off school so he agreed to help me replace two toilets and two ceiling fans. Those that know my husband know what a sacrifice this truly is…he hates home projects more than anything. But he agreed and I wasn’t about to ask twice!
Of course, there are always hiccups and sure enough, we pull out the first toilet to find a completely rotted toilet flange. So rotted that it couldn’t even hold the screw for the toilet. It was literally in pieces which meant that our quick fix switch was not going to be the case.
I couldn’t do anything without a run to the Depot so we left that project and went to the ceiling fans. I’ve had these fans purchased and sitting in the garage since February. It was about time we installed them!! Not only were our brass fans ugly – they weren’t functional.
The run to Home Depot took longer than expected and by the time I got home it was time to play. Steve’s rule is work in the morning, play in the afternoon, don’t mix the two!
We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening swimming and BBQing with family – the way every labor day should end!
