Oh, god, Larry's going to attempt plumbing. That never ends well. The faucet on our bathtub is dripping and when the plumber was here a couple of weeks ago to fix the toilet, he didn't want to bother with the faucet that day, for a number of reasons = he didn't want to bother.

During other plumbing attempt, Larry once threw a sink down the stairs in a rage. He knows how to do things in theory, but there's a reason he's a SURGEON, not a PLUMBER.

But the faucet is dripping so badly that I've been collecting water and using it to fill the fish tank when it gets low, water the plants, and make coffee.

Yesterday, Larry helped me change the lightbulbs in the fish tank, which resulted in an over-flowing reservoir and water all over the carpet.

He's very meticulous and OCD about handyman stuff, but it never quite turns out the way he wants it to. He'll get a level out every time he hangs a picture, and measure and mark up the wall, and the pictures are always crooked and in the wrong spot. One time he remodeled our guest bathroom and now there is wood paneling covering the heat/AC vent.

He just informed me that he's "not at the point of no return yet" and he's going to the hardware store. Good thing we have more than one bathroom.

But it makes him feel useful and he's been away from his house for a while, so he's enjoying himself.

In other news, the sun is shining. That's a very nice thing to see after 6 straight days of rain.
