Handy house dad
The garbage disposal went out over the weekend, so I bought a new one this morning after dropping off the kids. It took me about an hour to install, mostly because I replaced the old flange at the bottom of the sink. You have to roll some plumber's putty in there. The box stores are charging over a $100 to install these things, so I'm glad I was confident enough to do it on my own. In truth, I couldn't have done something like this before the age of Google. I looked over some DIY instructions before tackling it. When BB came home I had to show him my handiwork. This, I'm thinking, is what a house dad is supposed to do.
