Next, I got my eyes checked a few weeks ago and got some really cool expensive transitional eye wear. Only problem is I can't see out of them...blur. I'm thinking this isn't normal. I got to eye Dr and they say most times it's the lenses being made wrong. I go to optical place and they tell me lenses are correct with what my prescription says. Their solution...I wear them too low and the blah blah blah optic blah blah blah is in the center where the pupil is suppose to be...I say well what are we gonna do about this? They measure my eyes, measure my lenses, measure my pupils again. Finally, it was decided they can remake the lenses to accommodate how I wear them. Two days without them, tho. Good think I keep my old glasses.
After this, I take my soldering iron to the stain glass store to return the soldering tip they sold me that doesn't fit my soldering iron! She takes a look at my soldering iron and says...we don't sell those here anymore, cuz we have so much trouble with that brand. Turns out to be a bust...the nice lady did explain if I work harder on cleaning the soldering tip it should be fine. She gave me tips on how to clean it. Tried that but what the heck I'll do it again.
Okay, I'm saving the best for last....
Our bathroom sink faucet has been leaking forever. I decide, again to fix it. I purchased a simple fixture which matches the tub stuff. I read the instructions, a tillion times, I get the tools I need, I get a pan for any possible leaks, I clear out the cabinet and I'm ready.
|This is the faucet & instructions, easy enough.|
I got to the store and bought a channel lock wrench and got the black thing off. No problem...but I couldn't get the pipe loose. A different tool needed? I get the pliers and yank on it hard....hummm I break the pipe connecting the faucet to the water supply!!!!
|As you can see it's broke!|
|This is the piece I have to replace....|
|I didn't know Home Depot has video registers!|
Notice I have on Home Depot orange!
BTW, while at Home Depot I saw this flooring....remember my bedroom headboard/wall idea?
|Hard to see in this photo but it's super cool color with grey tones.|
|This is the color I was drawn too, but the other was different from what I've seen.|
