just call me ms. fix it . . .

so . . . yesterday was sean's birthday. today his family came over for lunch to celebrate his birthday. yesterday . . . i was cleaning. the cleaning included cleaning the fish bowl. the fish bowl has pretty little blue rocks. a "few" pretty blue rocks went down the drain when i was cleaning the fish bowl. i guess i didn't clean all of them out and the garbage disposal didn't like that. it stopped working. i didn't want to tell sean . . . it was his birthday. this morning i searched the web for directions on how to repair a broken garbage disposal. i found the description of what my disposal was doing and learned how to fix the problem. the girls and i went to the grocery store to get icing for sean's cake. then on to the hardware store we went . . . all 4 of us girls. had to get some hex keys. yes . . . my husband is a contractor and we didn't have 1 hex key at our house. now i have a whole set of my own! after our outing . . . we came home and i fixed the garbage disposal and decorated sean's cake . . . all before he even woke up! and as soon as he woke up . . . the first thing i said to him . . . you didn't know you married a ms. fix it, did you?
