When Life Is Off Balance

Updated on February 2, 2012

I Don't Hear A Thing

I close my eyes and I am afraid to look

I cover my ears and don't want to hear

Don't tell me no more I don't want to listen

My life is like a bicycle wheel that keeps hitting the rim

Warped and wiggling back like crazy

How do I fix it when I don't have the time

Do I just accept it and face the facts and say that is the way life is

Everyone has felt like this one time or another in their life

But they don't make it a habit

They try to forget it as fast as they can

Move on or slowly change our ways

Which is far from easy

It can be done with some effort

Remember when your sink clogged

If your like me and don't run out to call a plumber

I wondered what could be the cause ?

Asked questions to other people who might know

Tried to fix it with a friends advice

Later called the friend for more help

Then problem solved

One hundred and fifty dollars richer

Because I didn't have the money anyway

So all I am asking is try

See what we can do

If that is not an option see what we have to do for now

Keep asking for help until you are able to fix the problem

Next time you will have learned how to do it better not always the best

One step in the right direction

Now I have to see why my bathroom sink isn't draining

I have a few thoughts but they are only guesses

I will get back to you with the results

Hoping for the best and can't wait to see all my troubles go down the drain

      Good thinking. If we all try to fix our on stuff, and get better an better at it. We could save a fortune.

      Oh, wouldn´t want to put the small, honest businessman out of business, though. Must be room for compromise, here.

      raciniwa Well I cleared everything out from under the sink and you can remove a plastic cap under the pipe.It collects hair and can slow the drain.Make sure you have bucket to catch the little bit of water in the drain pipe.There were some hairs and then I put it back on and tried the baking soda and vinegar to clean the rest of the drain I can not see.So far so good.Thanx for asking.Has this ever happened to you?Have a great day.

      Apostle Jack God knows I tried my best and the problem is solved.I can go on and now I have been able to fix a problem and now live and appreciate the water as well as the drain that takes the water away.There is a purpose in everything.We just have to watch the way the water flows or doesn't flow in this case.Thanx so much.

      Deborah Brooks I learned how to make a bigger mess so far.I am using a remedy my mother told me years ago.Put a cup of baking soda and then pour white vinegar down the drain.Wait five minutes and then pour hot water down for three to four minutes.The baking soda will foam up it's o.k.It makes the drain smell nice.Thanx so much.
