Those of you who have read my blog for a while know how intensely I HATE low-flow toilets. The one I have as given me trouble off and on ever since I've had it. Maybe something is wrong with it or how it was installed, but I've never hated anything as much in my life as I do that thing. I've finally had it with it and am shelling out for a power or pressure-assisted one. I'm doing research now online and reading reviews. I want the next one to be good and give me no problems just as others I've had in the past before this one from hell.
Yesterday I went to Lowe's, thinking I could handle this myself, and bought an augur. Nope. Called the plumber again who knows the way to my bathroom and just walks back there. We're on a first-name basis now. It took him about 3 minutes. So I spent money unnecessarily. I told him I was getting the new toilet and would probably never see him again. Let's hope so! The money I've spent on the plumber over the years could have paid for one of those power-assisted ones a couple of times, I'll bet.
Anyway, that's my life lately along with knitting, going out to eat with friends, and my usual slothful ways.
