Yes, I'm now a Plumber too!

Okay, the title is a little misleading! Not really a plumber, I'm more like a frugal handywoman!

Five years ago when we renovated our kitchen I was advised not to cheap out on the kitchen faucet.  I was told to go with a quality faucet with possibly a lifetime warranty.  Well I did some research (which means I went to Home Depot and talked to the faucet guy) and he recommend the Moen faucet.  It had a lifetime warranty and was the style (and price I was looking for).  It cost $199 plus taxes (according to the receipt that I still have for it).  I'm not sure it it was on sale or not (probably was, knowing me).

Randomness

Hey there!

Sorry I've been MIA, but today is the first day in awhile that I've felt "good".

I thought I'd update you all on some randomness around these parts.

1.  The Mudroom built-ins.  Remember those that I talked about awhile ago?  I begged asked hubby to tear down a small closet in our small mud room/laundry room so that I could build my built-ins in that area.  Then I had a plumber come in and cut a bunch of pipes for the laundry tub, that I will no longer have in that room.  Then... the next day Anthony woke up with a fever, that lasted about 5 days, followed by a nasty cough that kept him and me awake all night long.  After about a week or so he was well enough that I sent him to school.  That afternoon I receive a call from Haley's school that she wasn't well.  Yeap! She caught whatever Anthony had.  So more fever and lack of sleep.  Three days later, I caught it! Mine turned into a sinus and ear infection probably cause i was playing nurse for everyone else and so I neglected myself.  I've been on antibiotics for a few days, and the pain is gone and I'm getting some energy back.  All this to say... still no progress on Mudroom built-ins!
