Banker Gurl : Man of the House

May 24th, 2014 at 09:25 pm

Well yesterday I worked 10.5 hrs, carried 24 12pk of pop from my car to my basement, then I used a sump pump, lawn mower, extension cord, and fuse box by myself....then I crushed a beer can on my head.
Haha JK, but I did have several delicious Cheladas while I cleaned the hot tub.
So pretty and clean!!!

So after work I found the correct switch in the fuse box and turned off the hot tub (I have never touched the fuse box before). I got out the sump pump (which I have never used before) and put it in the hot tub so that it could pump out the tub while I was mowing the lawn. I had some trouble getting it to work...so I am holding it in the water for several minutes and messing with it trying to get it to kick on...one of the hoses came off while I was doing that, and then suddenly it decides to kick on before I get the hose back on and COMPLETELY soaks me from head to toe! Sprays everywhere, mostly in my face...I am fighting with it trying to get a grip so I can get the hose back on and after the initial shock of getting rocked in the face I am laughing so hard the neighbors probably thought I lost my mind...damn that was funny. Def could have been on AFHV.

So I got that going and while its pumping the tub I mowed the yard. Once I was done with that I went and got my suit on and cleaned the tub which was nice cause it was a beautiful 83 degrees here last night. Brought out some tunes and listened to the Beach Boys Greatest Hits and enjoyed my adult beverages. It was enjoyful. Smile

All that took a few hours and I felt very studly when I was done! Plus was a good start to the Monster To Do List.

    Girls can do everything a man can do! Having 'manned' the house while my husband is away I have done many things that one thinks a man should do. I have even done electrical work including hanging a ceiling fan. I also do simple plumbing jobs. YouTube is my friend when my husband is away. Great job!!

    I grew up with the DIY Dad of the world and 2 brothers. Instead of treating me like the princess, I was usually treated like one of the boys. And since my parents own a bunch of rentals, I have done nearly every home repair you can think of, shingled more roofs then I can count, poured many driveways, lots of landscaping and probably more hours painting/staining then anyone who isn't a professional! However I usually have direction and assistance. So was very proud of myself for not calling DH or my Dad when I was having trouble with the pump. Smile

    Banker Gurl, that you were even willing to take on the sump pump speaks volumes. Good on you! Like CCF, You Tube is my friend, I re-play the video, gather supplies and make a start. It likely takes me three times longer to get tasks done but I reward myself with a gift of 'me' time.
