Months turned to weeks and my stepdad passed away Friday morning.
He wasn't ill long and died peacefully so all things considered it could have been much worse.
RIP Olaf :wavesad:

My granny died in 10 days and she died peacefully, too. At least they are not suffering anymore. Big hugs :heart:

Puking after Christmas dinner, while two of my nieces were listening outside my bathroom stall. And it's not like I had been drinking a lot (just a cocktail and a glass of wine). I think it was because I drank a tall glass of soda water too fast. Anyway, I thought my nieces hadn't noticed. They were funny and sweet about it :lol:

My toilet is leaking at the base. Not excessively, but there is some water coming out after the toilet is flushed. I tried tightening the bolt but water is still coming out. Anyway, waiting for the plumber.

That happened to me a few months ago; I am the most useless "man" as home repairs go....leaning towards a nuisance historically, but I went to YouTube and pulled a vid found it was likely a worn wax seal and fixed it myself. A month later I fixed my own washing machine too. :banana: Sucks....good luck with it.

The other day, I realized the air conditioning and the high lights of my car (we bought a car) were not working properly. I got the manual out and saw the fuses, and noticed they were all arranged incorrectly, per the manual. So I put them in their right place. The car wouldn't even start now. Got them all back where they were, and the radio stopped working. But the car did start, so I left it that way for a couple of days. Bought some fuses and decided to just try to place fuses randomly until the AC, high lights and radio all worked normally. I placed one fuse and the AC and high lights were now working. I pushed another fuse a bit deeper, and the radio came back.

I spent about 25 dollars buying around 30 fuses and I ended up using just one. That annoyed me a bit, but the upside was too good to get too annoyed by that.

I looked on youtube too, but didn't want to try removing the toilet myself.

The plumber is here now. The problem is the gasket. It was a wax one and almost completely disintegrated.

Well, all's well that ends well....I was terrified I would find water damage to what was an unknown foundation under the toilet as I knew the tiles were cut to form a flush arc around the base. I didn't know if there would be any wood rot or any mildew or worse, mold. It all worked out. :lol:

Today is the third consecutive day that I'm trying to get tickets for the Yayoi Kasuma:Infinity Mirrors exhibition at the art gallery. There are 15,275 people ahead of me in the queuing system. :eyes: # firstworldproblems
