Bathroom fixed thank you very much

By golly, I fixed the damn thing! It took three trips to various stores but it is done.....crack in the pipe underneath to the drain. I had no idea one uses putty to put a drain in..go figure..50 dollars total spent and ten thousand hours of my time....I did learn as I went....thank heavens for time life books my husband got maybe 30 years ago. He never used them...I covet them and I hope I spelled that right! I remember many years back in 1992 having a wee babe stuck to my breast and decided I would change a toilet. Now, PF he said, get a plumber..not I, as I am cheap...(kind of)...I got my handy dandy time life book of toilet info and wrote all the specifics down. Went to Moore's remember them, are they still open? I told said male clerk with baby stuck to me what my plans were and he laughed. I was in very small townville and well, we womanfolk make babies and cook...or so they thought. It took me all the damn day but I got that toilet in and I even changed the connection. ..it was a water saver toilet too!! You know what ..I was the first to use it..I was proud. Of course when changing the seal, etc..I forgot to cover the hole and nearly passed out from the methane gas..my oldest came in and saved me..kind of..you know... Mom put the towel over the hole.......

Lindy, I admire you for being willing to take on the plumbing. This is something that I hate and DH hates it more than I do. After $11,000 in medical bills and this broken leg, it will be a long time, if ever, before either one of us wants to take on anything with water!! You go, girl!
