Fix it Now!

Fix it Now!

Would fixing the staircase have made a difference? We think so.
Yesterday Laure's round-up of "How Tos" reminded us of how often we make do with something that doesn't work properly, never quite finding the time to get around to fixing it.

And then one day, the little issue (the dripping sink, the key that sticks) becomes a big one (the sink overflows, the key breaks in the lock). And, always at the wrong time (the day of the job interview, on the way to the airport). We're reminded of the newel post at the bottom of the stairs in "It's A Wonderful Life". The one that kept coming off in George Bailey's hand. Having seen the movie too many times to count, we're convinced that if George had just done The Cure and fixed it... But, then, Clarence might have never have gotten his wings. From redoing the grout in your kitchen tile (me!) to swapping out soap for a pump dispenser in the bathroom (mom!), these seemingly little things can make a huge difference in both your home and your mindset.
