I have been working on being positive, something I have been known for in the past, and wish to perpetuate in the future! So I found another way to appreciate my former spouse. He was handy! He could fix things! I cannot.
When I moved into my tiny house last April, my kitchen faucet was drippy. I was able to stop the drip by wiggling the handle, and that worked for a few months. Then my tub faucet became drippy. I got a screwdriver, and tightened a screw. That stopped the drip for another few months, periodically.
Finally the wiggling and the tightening were no longer effective, and I called a plumber. Literally, he was here for less than 30 minutes, replaced the sink seal in seconds, and the tub seals in minutes, and I was writing him a check for $98. That is when I appreciated another favorable aspect of my former spouse. He was handy. I am thinking about taking a class in simple plumbing.
