Repair, Replace and Fix.......now repeat!

December 12th, 2010 at 02:11 pm

Ok.....so I realize that as a homeowner you have a lot of things to keep up on, fix, repair and replace. But really, does something have to break EVERY day??!! In the past 2-3 months we have had:

-Lock on patio door broke, so we have to lock it by putting a board in the slats so no one can break in until we are ready to buy a new one ($$$)
-Car radio/clock died
-Car battery died
-Hot tub went from 104 degrees down to 76 degrees, by the time repair guy gets here it is down to 50 degrees, we then find out we have a "friend" who is chewing threw the wires and so had to get all of the wires replaced and buy "friend" traps
-Bathroom cupboard FELL off of the wall. Completely fell off the wall onto the floor and hit the opposite wall, so now there is also a hole in the wall where it landed. Thank goodness I was not home, that would have scared the daylights out of me. And if I was in the bathroom I probabaly would have died. (literally died as if I was on the pot it would have crushed me!)
-Found out at least 3 outlets in our house do not work, one is the only outlet in the bathroom (UGH!) one is in the backyard and one is in the gararge.
-Washer started smoking yesterday right as we were leaving to go to a Christmas get together. The washer is VERY old, it was the washer that was left in the house by the previous owners, so it was free to us and I am grateful that it lasted 3 years...it is avocado green and is ready to retire.

So there is my big whine for the day! Smile

DH and I shopped around for washer and dryer sets today and will probably get one within the next week or so.

We also found a good deal on a TV, got a 32' for $250 (after a $100 mail in rebate). We are going to put that TV in the basement so I have an area to do my Wii Fit. Smile

    As a former homeowner and now an apartment resident -- that's one thing I don't miss!
    But there are many advantages to owning a home, too, so don't let these things get you down.
