Sunday General Update -- leaks?

Eleanor has an ear infection, so her sleeping patterns have been all sorts of wacky lately. This morning, she woke up at about 7:00, screaming. Sarah got up, fed her, and brought her into bed with us (we had already been up twice during the night). Eleanor then fell back asleep on my chest until 9:30, which was doubly nice. The sleeping late was great, but having my little girl asleep in my arms was pretty special, too.

We knew we were not going to make church, so Sarah and I set ourselves to some cleaning. Sarah discovered a bunch of water under the sink, which filled me with dread as I envisioned a Sunday trying to be a plumber. I emptied out the cabinet under there, dried everything off, then tried to find the leak. I ran water through both sides of the sink, ran the garbage disposal, ran the dishwasher, and even sprayed the little sprayer thing, but no leak. I guess that's good, but I still wonder where the water came from.

Sarah tried her own plumbing project -- using baking soda and vinegar to clean out our shower drain, but she had trouble getting the drain stopper out. She asked for my help, and I fiddled with the thing for 30 minutes before discovering it simply screwed off. So, we've cleaned out the drain.

No real need to be a plumber today, which is a good thing.

  1. I thought you were going to see Dad? Ohh well I hate plumbing more than anything as far as fixing the house.
