How Many Trips to Home Depot…

…does it take to plumb a sink? We don’t know yet. So far we’re at two.

Due to a misunderstanding between our contractor and me, we have been without a kitchen sink for three days longer than necessary. He thought I was hiring a plumber. I thought he had one on staff.

But! The Boy can plumb.

With the help of Kitten Thunder, of course.

We have running water! The Boy is still working on the side with the garbage disposal so a final picture, and stories of teaching the cats that the brown thing IS TOO counter, will be coming on Thursday.

Everyone is talking about Boston on the blogosphere. My aunt was running and my mom was near the finish line. They are okay. I send my thoughts out to those who were not so lucky. And I send my thanks out to the locals who helped. From the lady who pulled my mom and others into her apartment, to the organizers who guided runners to their evacuated families, and the hotel staff who welcomed them “home” that afternoon. My whole family loves you, Boston!
