Urban Reconstruction

Bucket under sink. Plumber will arrive. Advil still works.

So I wouldn't call it a crisis, exactly.
Just can't stand behind the quality of my thoughts today--

There are few places I hate more than under the sink. I hate working under the sink, I hate paying someone else to work under the sink even more. Good luck with this one Ann T.

Oh no...no ggod things are ever under the sink! Best of luck!
Come on over if you need to escape!

Sorry to hear about the plumbing issue. As the sink/bathroom/drain first responder here, I can attest to it being a lousy job.

Hopefully the snow is not failling there as it is here...

Dear Capt. & SD,
Thank you. I am also creeped out by under the sink. You guys are heroes for tackling it.

I think I will be getting a new disposal. And won't that just be the bomb.

So far no snow. None of ours stuck. The birds are occasionally singing in the trees but there is still dirty snow everywhere. They finally plowed our street last night!

Our house doesn't have a disposal (our apartment did) & I've been just a bit disturbed about throwing things into the trash that I would ordinarily grind. But I have a friend at work who composts! So I bought a little tub to put my egg shells, orange rinds & coffee grounds in & take it to her every week. Makes me feel virtuous. Next step - compost my own self!

Ann:
If it was the garbage disposal, maybe the rubber feed line cracked with age (don't we all sooner or later?)

That's just what I remember replacing in out old house (for Mom).
Any other leak is probably just "some tightening required".

NO biggie, but it's no fun becoming a contortionist for an hour, trust me.

Hope all goes well.

Dear Gia,
I don't have to move to your house after all. Thank you for the invitation though! Some other time!

NEW DISPOSAL. Works GREAT. Lucky I wasn't ELECTROCUTED.

Handy man Tip: Guy had a headband with a flashlight on it, so he could actually see what he was doing and not drop the flashlight!

Thanks everybody!

Dear The Bug,
Alas, in this patio-less unit, I cannot compost. Plus it is a requirement of the condo association to have a disposal.
I do recycle. Very easy, right down the hall.

Dear Bob G.,
I don't know what it was, but water was getting into the electrical, so it was new $85 unit or THE ZAP.

I paid--

Thanks you two!
Ann T.
