Sometimes you just have to confront things that make you anxious. This past weekend I had big plans to get several home projects completed. Well, I got two done, but only one was on the list. Don’t you just hate it when you walk into the kitchen and there is a puddle of water on the floor and the carpet in the adjoining room is wet? Me too. So, I got the chance to confront a DIY project that has always been one that I had avoided, plumbing. A day and a half, and a few dollars later, I can cross plumbing off the list of things that intimidate me. Just like most things, when you have the proper tools, it isn’t terribly difficult. I was able to solder 14 joints, and cut and fit a number of pieces of pipe to repair a pinhole leak in a pipe feeding the kitchen sink. (it just HAD to be smack dab in the center of a T joint) My point in all this is that we all have things we avoid doing, or maybe even are afraid of doing because we have a preconceived idea that we just can’t do it. Make this a week where you do something that scares you. I did, you can too. It is a really good feeling once you put something like that behind you.
PS. I didn’t say it was pretty, but it doesn’t leak.
