I have to fix plumbing messes. Replace the wax ring on a toilet, fix whatever caused water to soak both sides of the wall behind the toilet (hopefully those two are related), replace the bottom inside of the kitchen sink cabinet because the drain pipe leaked. Then, refinish a bed frame for our two year old and get her a matress, then I should probably fix the soffit where the squirrels come into the attic.

Replace the defective GFI outlet in the garage that also shut down the outlets in both bathrooms and on the front porch.

Whoever designed that circuit tied way too many things together.

I don't overdo it. I just make sure that everything is in good enough shape to last until the day after I die. Then the whole house will probably cave into the basement.......:D

I have two homes to take care of so that sure cut into my gun time. But I'm retired so I still have plenty of time left.

I prefer to be called a land barron.:D

2 homes does this mean 2 wifes?? :D

back in early 90ies i was maintaining the home and 6 - 2 bed units at one site one town house at another while raising 3 small kids working contractor and studying my degree part time. Twas nuts,, a few all niters were done painting and cleaning before new tenants. I got out of all that some years back pheew i still remember trying to paint roof n wall while 1 year old squawked for attention from a play crib narrh it did not work home she went me back with camp bed.
but most off all i remember paying $160 for sparky to change one light bulb as the fool of a tenant said it was emergence call...:( i dont miss that twas like running a guest house hotel.

its too hot to work in the shed now about 34c. I almost got the curtain rail sorted had to fabricate 2 wood hangers from roof as the wall ones just pulled out of the dry wall even with secure fasteners. Its been a bit hit n miss proof the concept,, dear wife testing my skill & commitment but by late eve it will be done...

I don't need a honey-do list.
I know when something needs repair and I fix it.
Why would I need my wife to tell me to do that?
It keeps me active and it keeps the house in good condition.

Biggest thing I need to do, that I have been putting off is to trim the bushes from the vacant lots, on one side of me, and the back. The Brazilian Pepper trees are eating my fence. I do it every fall. But I am also allergic to them, and end up breaking out in a rash every time.
