One of the house projects that needs to be done is to fix the leaking drainpipe that runs under the house. This is something that should be fixed soon, because this is one of those repairs that, if not fixed, will cause damage costing five times as much.

Lori's father has suggested that if I were to dig away the earth covering the pipe, he and I could replace the pipe. Doing this would be significantly cheaper than having a plumber do it, and because of my financial crunch, cheaper has significant appeal to me.

But to me it seems like incredibly grungy and arduous work. I don't want to do it.

Which leaves me feeling embarrassed, because it seems that to Les, it's just a job. Yeah, it's an unpleasant job, but it doesn't daunt him the way it daunts me.

He says it's okay with him if I just pay to get it fixed. I believe that it's okay with him. But I feel that I'd be wussing out to do so.
