About seven or so months ago the shower fixture in the master bedroom broke making that shower inoperable. We decided not to repair it because we wanted to fix up that whole bathroom anyway, but just did not have it in the budget at the time. Last night the main bathroom suffered the same calamity. Now we have no functional shower in the house and I will have to fix at least one of them tonight.
What I find annoying is the construction methods and materials used on the fixtures is unsat. The fixtures themselves are obviously cheep and certainly not designed to last a life time. To add insult to injury they are welded on to the pipes instead of threaded in. Making replacement really challenging. Boo.
This morning ZMH was sleepy and rested her head on my thigh for most of the sitting. Before I left the house the kids snuck some of their toys into my bag. Awww.
