Can I fix it? Yes I can!!!

Ok so last Thursday the toilet flusher thingy on the kids toilet broke. So we had to flush it by hand pulling the little lever thing. Which was a pain. But we weren't home much so it wasn't a huge issue, plus we still had 2 working toilets. So the Hubby said to call our landlord, which I didn't do because they would say ,oh ok we'll take care of it please don't mess with it yourselves, than not come forever. We had the spring thingy on one of the garage doors break, cause it's old, in November and they still haven't come to fix that. So I thought if I left it over the weekend my Hubby would take care of it. Even with that extra day off- woo hoo- Here it was Tuesday morning and...... nope still broken.
So I thought Hey it doesn't look that bad maybe I could do it myself. So I trotted (ok drove) on down to this place-

Where a very helpful woman in a red vest hooked me up with one of these and the assurances that-
"You can do!"
And You know what??!!?? I DID IT!
Seriously who needs one of these?-

Or even one of these?-

I am one empowered Woman! And in the words of my toddler, " I can do it myself!"

Yay! Good for you! I would have needed gloves...and a manual...and a...well...my husband. I can't do it. I would just mess it up. Great job for not only trying, but succeeding!
