There are some things I can do around the house and there are others things I can’t do. I can run the vacuum cleaner, I can do laundry, and I can cook.
When it comes to electrical work I shy away from it. I have changed receptacles and light fixtures. I have installed ceiling fans. More than that I won’t tackle because I just don’t trust myself when it comes to playing with electricity.
Another thing I won’t tackle around the house is plumbing. I might do minor work like changing the wax seal on the toilet or changing a washer in a faucet. However, big jobs call for a professional.
I was struck with such a big job the other night. Why is it that things seem to happen at night when service people are done for the day?
Anyway, it was around 9:30 at night. I thought I would go into the bathroom and brush my teeth before the 10:00 news started. That way I would be all ready for bed after the weather report.
All things were going fine until I was ready to rinse. The water would not go down. Oh no! The sink was clogged. Of course I could go out to the kitchen to finish brushing my teeth but that would not take care of the clog.
What do I need to do? Must I remove the stopper and try to dig out the clog? This might work if the clog was not too deep in the system. Would the snake work? I didn’t feel like playing around with that at 10:00 at night.
Maybe if I just left it alone the clog would magically disappear on its own. Yeah, sure it will. Maybe I will have to call a plumber to remove what is a big clog. I could see the blockage. I knew what caused it, but I was at a loss as to how to unblock the sink.
I did get a picture of what kept the water from freely flowing down the drain. What do you think I should have done?
