I know I haven’t blogged in a while.
There is so much going on. Work is busy. The cat was sick. Family vehicle broke down. Basically every thing in life take priority over my blog.
I think I am just spent from work. It is beyond stressful this month and I am even more thankful I have stuck with Whole30 through all of this because there has been no stress eating through all of the work issues.
There has been a lot of construction work in our neighborhood. The freeway project rolls on and I just put together today our recent faucet issues with the water trucks that have been in the neighborhood.
I came home from the gym last week, probably the week before now, and the water company was changing out our water meter. I asked him what was going on and the guy said something like “what do you need water right now” I said in fact I did. He was gone within 20 minutes.
We have had a dripping kitchen sink for a while. We put a water can under it and dump it once a day on the plants outside. However last week the shower started dripping. Seriously dripping. We are in SoCal, we still have water restrictions we can’t have this continue.
I am now wondering if the pressure in the neighborhood or our new meter is higher and causing these faucets to leak more.
Lori set up a plumber to come yesterday and change out the shower and kitchen faucets. The window was from 1pm to 5pm. At 4:52, he was on his way from Irvine so expected at 6:30 pm. She cancelled. I texted an acquaintance this morning to see if he wanted a side job.
I can change out a regular faucet. But the kind with the valve in the wall I am just unsure about. Either way we may be ripping out stucco on the outside of the kitchen or re-tiling the shower.
This weekend we shall see, either Robert will come help or do this job, or we will be attemping to change them.
That fourth picture is the faucet we just changed out for Vicki and Emily. The install was easy the removal took me all day and resorted to a hacksaw to get it off. That all seems easy at this point.
