Still Working

Last night, I finally found out where Hers Truly's school was.

I really need a new nik for Hers Truly. It doesn't quite fit any more. So, I'll start calling her Miss Rainbow Dash, or Miss Dash for short, or maybe RDash. She's a Rainbow Dash fangirl, and always takes her parts in stories.

So, Jenny hung up shelves in Miss Dash's bedroom, and I dug out many of her toys and clothing. That needs to migrate upstairs.

I tried replacing the Moen shower handle cartridge this morning, but the thing was stuckity-stuck-stuck. I had to abort. Hopefull some vinegar helps. I'll keep applying before I get desperate and buy another tool. This might get ugly, folks.

As a side project, I'm trying to clean up Miss Dash's antique rocking chair that we fished out of the old attic. I can't refinish it, so I'm wiping it down with mineral spirits and rewaxing it, hoping for the best.

Mother-in-law goes home today. I get my office back for that 10 minutes per day when I can use it. For a while, my workshop area will simply be more valuable to my free time. So much to fix. So much.

It took Tom 18 years of working out before he could remove the ancient (and non-standard size!) shower head threads in my bathroom using a pipe wrench. Start lifting weights! :> Oh wait, you've been moving boxes; never mind. If you have to reattach such a thing ever, teflon tape is your friend.
