I rock!


I have long abandoned the Chinese virtue of modesty.  I have no problem tootin’ my own horn when I feel like it.  Last night, I fixed the washer and I’m damn proud of myself.  The washer wasn’t draining for some reason and I had a feeling that something was clogging the hose.  So I bailed water out of the washer, opened it up, unclamped the hoses and eventually dug out a big clump of bathmat lint from the water pump.  Hearing the water drain out of the machine after I put everything back totally made my day.  I felt the same way when I replaced the battery in my car.  I know these are not major accomplishments but coming from a family where no one is handy and having been told repeatedly that I’d electrocute myself if I went near any broken appliances, I think I should be pretty proud of my fix-it skills.  Cars and major appliances still intimidate me but the more I tinker with them, the less intimidated I am.  Plus I’m saving money by fixing things myself…you can’t beat that.  🙂
