One of the things The Wife always says is that “if you have a lot of stuff that needs replacing that means you have a lot of stuff”. I sometimes forget that when I’m fixing things. But, it is a something to remember. It’s a nuisance, for example. to need a new automatic chlorine feeder for the pool; however, it’s very nice to have a pool in our backyard. Many of my recent “annoyances” are in that category and aren’t really a “problem” at all. These days where it seems like everything is breaking are actually good days.
