My Sink


sink

This is my sink. I just walked over and took this picture. The entire basin fell into the cabinet the other night. As I said to someone yesterday at first I was upset because it made me change all my plans. I had to wait for the plumber, then he had to consult a granite counter top installer, get the items to install the sink properly this time, and now it has to set for 48-72 hours. First they glued the sink back up (what you see now is the clamps to keep it up) it sets for 24 hours to make sure it is in securely. Then they will caulk it to seal it to keep from getting any water in between the granite and the sink. That will dry another 24 or more.

But, in the long run, this is nothing. Yes, the closest sink to wash dishes in is the laundry tub in the basement. But, I think of women and children who daily walk miles to get water. I have nothing to complain about. It is an inconvenience at most but I am very, very, fortunate in my life.

    That’s not fun to wake up to 😦 I love your attitude though. So often we take simple things for granted.

  4. How the heck did that happen? It kind of scares me because I just had my kitchen redone earlier this summer and I would knock them in the head if that happened. Just kidding! Sort of…

    I think of people that have to walk miles to get clean water so I’m with you, in the scheme of things, it could be a lot worse.

      The person that owned our house before we bought it was a “contractor.” He gutted the house and rebuilt it but divorced partway through the process, lost the house, got the house back and then got tired of building his “dream house” that wasn’t going to be. We knew there were problems with the house – we had it inspected twice before we bought it. But, we got a deal because it had been sitting empty for almost 18 months. So, he took shortcuts here and there getting it ready to sell. We have found most of them but every once in a while a new one pops up! 🙂
