@AB Bride:  This is user error, but there is a piece of the wall by the linen closet in the master bathroom that kept getting little chips in the paint.  It was baffling to me how this would happen.  …until I saw FI get out of the bathroom after a shower, with his work clothes in hand, and the metal part of the belt thwacked on the wall.

I think I’ve repainted that section about 6 times 🙁

@AB Bride: We have yet to fix these things but our closet is missing a spring thingy in the corner, our door needs a new spring latch, and we need some outlets, but so far the only thing we fixed is the toilet because it kept running.

@ANGELaaimt:  this made me LOL.

Our house has so many bootleg repairs, especially since it was flipped before we bought it. We call it the Little Crooked House, because everything is just…. off a little bit. Every time we make repairs or upgrades, it seems to takes us 2x the amount of money and 5x the amount of time it should, had it been done right the first time.
