Been in pain all week with my lower back but today was to nice out to stay in, and I have lots to get done before the bees arrive next month.
Started by trying to get my chainsaw running, took a couple hours but finally got it running real nice, went and cut down a 20' alder that is in the way of my new bee yard and after I got it all cut up I went to get the lawn mower and trailer. Flat tire and it had popped the seal so I then spent about an hour trying to get it to seal with no luck. So off to the store to buy an inner tube. Got the tires all fixed, went to start it up and battery was dead, got the charger out and on the first try the plastic gear on the starter stripped have to order a new one, so went back up to the yard and started to cut down another 30' alder, when the wife and kids went to leave. My stuff was in the driveway and instead of waiting for me to move she tried to go around, and promptly sunk the front wheels upto the axle. An hour later I got the car free and her and the kids left, I finished cutting the tree down, after trying to start the chainsaw for about 20 minutes (arms about ready to drop off). About now my back is on fire and my knee is in agony (thats what you get for smashing it as a teenager) Headed indoors looking forward to a nice hot soak....no towels...no problem throw some in the wash and wait a little longer for the soak. Then the washing machine starts beeping and the display has an error code on it, I look up the code and says I have a problem with the water draining, looks like the pump is busted, same one I had replaced under warrenty about a month ago. Right now I am thinking about staying in bed all day tomorrow.

Just drives me nuts when I go to do a simple little thing and find I have to do something else first. Then I have to look for the tool to do that with. And then something else comes up and the job gets delayed. Something that should have taken a few minutes ends up taking the whole day and I am so frustrated I don't do the other thing I was going to do that day.

Don't know if you're a hunter or not but if I were you making ready for a hunt I would more than likely score big.

Whenever I'd get a flat while hunting I'd get a deer, with your luck I'd probably have gotten two!

You hang in there man, it'll get better, it only can really!

sounds like spring to me  smiley

if your washer is a front loader, you may have stuff blocking the drain tube.  it's a common problem with the front loading washers.  i have had it happen twice on my Frigidaire.  it's kind of a mess to fix, but not to hard.  happens when you wash down to much dog hair, horse hair, mud.....

let me know if you think that might be it.  i'll tell you what i did if you want the info.

Thanks Kathy, its a top loader and an expensive one at that, we just had the pump replaced because it was leaking and flooding the laundry room. Now it looks like that pump has quit, I am going to look at it this afternoon but looks like the warranty will be in use again.

Hey there's one thing that went your way.  The washer broke while still under warranty. If your back pain is arthritis related a 30 minute walk every day will do wonders for it. I was having pain in the knees, hips and back.  After I started walking every day the pain went away.

The back is an old problem caused by a couple of bulging disks, so far this year the chiropractor is not working as well as in past years. Kinda supprised its not hurting as much today. Although the carpal tunnel is as bad as ever. Kind sucks getting old.

Good news, the washing machine is fixed, turns out this $900 machine uses a crappy little 5 cent electrical connector to the pump, the vibration in the machine cut the wire loose so the pump would not work. Guess I wont need the repair man after all

Yeah. Sorry about that. It's the meds you know. Sometimes I forget who I am. Good luck with that sticky situation.

In June, I installed a new dishwasher. It never worked correctly and after the required four fixings, I was able to repalce it. When I installed, it, i had to re-wire electric and move the plumbing so it didnt hit motor. I got new dishawasher, but we "upgraded". You guessed it. i had to re-do plumbing and electric.  25 minute install just became 3 hrs. Just as i was about to finish taping electric connections, ran out of tape. Off to hardware store, closed five minutes before I got there. its always something. Its not you, its not me, its just life!

like this place we bought.  a simple replacement of the toilet ended up with tearing out sub floor and most of a wall to repair dry rot  tongue
