Nice Yarn Makes Everything Better

Yesterday morning as we finalized our Spring Break change-of-plans, I decided I should go ahead and snake the bathroom sink. It had been draining slowly for a while and since my in-laws are now planning to come up to our house instead of our meeting up with us at a midway point, I thought I’d be nice and get it more visitor-friendly. I’ve snaked sinks a number of times in my day, so I expected it to be — you know — gross, but done in a short bit. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse and currently I am (not so) patiently awaiting a call back from the plumber. I try to be a pretty calm person in my daily life, but this kind of thing just makes me insanely anxious. For whatever reason car & home repairs just set me on edge. I feel helpless that I can’t fix it myself and terrified of the bill headed my way.

As my husband says though, it is what it is. Things break and sometimes we need help fixing them. I will just cross my fingers the issue is minor and he can be in and out before my in-laws arrive and that maybe the repairs will involve installing the new faucet I have had in my basement for over a year. That would be a bonus, I suppose.

For now, I’ll indulge the kids in extra screen time and I will attempt to calm my nerves with this…

You never want to have to call an emergency plumber on a Saturday morning with your in-laws en route to your house, but if you do it doesn’t hurt to have some nice yarn in your hands. Nice yarn makes everything better.

  1. Best wishes for a quick and happy resolution! You are absolutely right, nice yarn makes unhappy situations a little brighter.

  2. there are some tings you can’t control (sinks and plumbers) and some you can (yarn). Glad you have the latter to offset the former!
