The boring straight sh*t ’cause I’m too taaaarrrred for anything else

GG rummaging around in basement. What? Yucky old laundry sink is stopped up. Many snaky-type operations later and a trip to the hardware store (I think), it is clear. I did not pay attention. I was telecommuting. On the day after Thanksgiving, I had to work. Okay, I didn’t *have* to work, I just do not have a whole lotta vacay time left and wanna maximize my xmas-type days off. Why do we have those “laundry sinks” anyway? The only thing I have EVER used mine for is to fill buckets with water. It was old and yucky when we bought this place and you know that it is older and yuckier now. What is the point?

Actually [finally] finished up one work prodject this morning while Sittin’ on the Green Couch Watchin’ All the Dogz Go By. Eventually the Beach Urchins surfaced and the GG cooked us all a nice little brekkie, which was wonderful since I did virtually all of the cooking yesterday, except for some coffee, etc. I’m not complaining. I love to cook holiday dinners and if I don’t have stuff to do in the chitchen, I am likely to be off tinkering around looking for Things To Fling, etc. Not a good holiday activity. I can’t explain why, just trust me.

Actually, work was good today. Sometimes I am not very productive when I work from home, so I was actually thinking seriously about heading over to Cubeland at some point. But then everybody vacated the premises and home turned out to be a good, productive place to work, even with all the dern dogz walking by. And then it started snowing and I put my YakTrax on and walked down to the Oscar Tango, where I met up with the GG and Liz and Mouse and then we were porterized and it was all sooooo much fun and Cat Stevens was there but not the Cat Stevens that you know and, in fact, we won’t talk any more about that. At least not tonight. Fortunately she either didn’t see me or didn’t recognize me. I do not care which.

I have many missions in life and one of my current ones involves Bouncy Bow Pink Bow Purple Bow Blanket Mousey Mushroom Ears and Chrissy [the police mouse] and Hisse. I know that Hisse is around here and I WILL find her. I do think that Bouncy Bow could stand a trip through the washing musheen, don’t you? (Prob’ly better than a Wagon Bathtub, at least [wink])

    I’ve never had a laundry sink and wouldn’t know what to do with one either. I have a bathroom a few steps away from the laundry room, so if I need a sink, I just use that one. 🙂

    When we replaced our washing machine a few years ago, they set it up so it drained into the kitchen drain pipe from above. Prior to that, the washing machine drained into the laundry sink.

    (0) Kayak Woman administered the overall logistics for Thanksgiving.
    (1) GG bought, prepared, cooked (on the grill), and carved up the turkey.
    (2) The laundry tub gets significant use; just not used by Kayak Worman directly.

    Our washing machine drains into the laundry sink – which is also the only sink in the basement. As part of our remodel we did replace the cracked soapstone with a new one. We did manage to use the old sink base instead of the wimpier legs that came with the new.

    having a laundry sink makes me feel like a grown up.
