Sink and Garbage Disposal

… that’s about all that I got done today. I had my second night in a row with little sleep. I think that I got to sleep about 2 a.m. In addition, I’ve been fighting a cold the last three days. All this results with me being sluggish.

I started the day cautiously. The countertop is expensive, and I didn’t want to make a mistake when cutting the hole for the sink. I got it done just fine. Then it was off to the hardware store for some sealer. I got the sink installed. Yea!

I then started working on the dishwasher. The four leveling feet were holding strips of shipping wood to the bottom of the dishwasher. I laid the machine on its side to take off the four feet to get rid of the wood. One screw started binding. I put the machine on its top so that there was no lateral pressure on the leveling feet. Two of them came out easily. Two of them stripped. I have a hunch that it was this way when I got it. I headed to the hardware store again to get some nuts and washers to reinforce the feet and then I pirated two legs from my old machine. It didn’t work.

I then headed to Menards to buy a garbage disposal. After that, I headed to my friend Lee’s house to borrow a tap to clean out the dishwasher threads. After we got home, I installed the dishwasher while Noel tapped out the holes for the dishwasher legs.

It’s 10:15 p.m. and I’m quitting for the day. Again, I’m tired.
