God love you. A few summers ago, my husband and I decided to start fixing small things around the house that we'd put off for years. We did them one after another. I even made a list of things we needed whenever we went to the store to complete certain projects, so we wouldn't waste gas money making special trips. You know, a certain size washer for this, or a new cord for a lamp, small things that you'd normally forget about. We worked continually throughout the summer on these projects. Never did finish them, but made quite a dent. It's so surprising how many things you just make-do with. Although we never did buy anything new for the house, it's still a pleasure having things that are fixed and work properly--it saves so much time, trouble and money. I want to do that again next summer. As humble as my posessions are, they're still mine -- and paid for, so I plan on taking care of them and keeping them working as long as possible. Glad you found something that works for you.
