In other exciting news, after 5 years of dealing with a slow draining sink I now have a sink that drains fast enough to create a whirlpool.
It only cost 400.00 and took the plumber about 2.5 hours to do... but at any rate life is good. These past 6 years I've always told myself that a slow draining sink was part of the charm of living in a house built in 1892. It must have worked, because listing the house was the only reason it ended up getting fixed... but we didnt just fix it we actually had a completely new line of pipes ran. I hope the new owners can enjoy the luxury. When we moved in, not only did the sink drain slow, but it was a black sink that had been painted white... and was peeling in NUMEROUS places. It was a horrible sink, and at the time we couldnt afford to replace it.
We had an older couple that knew Jaydon stop in on their way back to Colorado to see us shortly after we moved in. They stayed just long enough for some coffee... and to get a glimpse of my sink. They were the sweetest couple, and I instantly felt like I had a new set of grandparents! :) A few days later we received a 100.00 check in the mail, and a note stating that it was to go towards a new sink. :) That really meant alot to us at the time. I often think about their generosity when I'm doing dishes!
Well, I have a big list of to do's for the day... and I had best get started!
