Water spurting EVERY. DANG. WHERE.
Was this how people on the Titanic felt?
I reached over and turned off the water that was spurting from the shower head hose. I figured it needed to be tightened. I knew I had to get one of Tom's tools. But when the water went everywhere, something in me broke. I began to cry, muttering things like, "If the military didn't take my husband away, I could call to him now and he'd fix it, no problem."
It's been a long deployment, guys.
He left in January.
But at the same time, I like fixing things on my own. I feel pretty dang good when I complete a task. Still. Sometimes you want to be able to call downstairs for help, you know?
I dried off, got dressed, and went into the garage. I found a tool I thought would help.
I know it's called a wrench, but in my mind it was a doo-hickey. I used to the doo-hickey to tighten the hose. I turned the water back on and...
....water. Water everywhere!
So then I took the shower head OFF, called it some foul names, and whined on Facebook.
Some people said it might be the washer. I was like, "Da fuq?" I took apart the shower head, screwed it all back together, and water still spurted everywhere.
My poor bathroom. But honestly, the floors needed a good scrub.
I went out and bought a NEW shower head, installed it...
....no spurting water!
