Do you ever live with an annoyance, a pet peeve, something that drives you absolutely nutty but for some reason instead of fixing it, taking care of it, doing whatever you need to do to stop the buggin' you let it go and before you know it you become used to it??!!! I do!
Remember my kitchen faucet that leaked - no not just a leak....the water spewed out more powerful than the sprayer itself!!!
You see our water in these here parts stinks - it's hard yucky water and so my beautiful bronze finish faucet is no more. Bye bye faucet I didn't get even 3 years outta ya!
I kept a towel over the sprayer for weeks (okay months - it's a MAN CHORE and you know how I feel about those) so you could stand at the sink without getting soaked. I finally bought a new faucet but since this was going to be the 3rd one and in keeping with the budget I decided not spend a ton of money. I thought I was at least getting a nickel finish or so the box that I carefully picked out said it was.
But it wasn't :(. It's not pretty but it doesn't leak and it was cheap!!
As Tim, our handyman (aka Man-Chore-for-Hire) was taking it out of the box and I saw the chrome he said "are you sure you want to keep it?" I'm like afterall this time if I don't just replace it now who knows when I will.
I think I need to make a latte now!
