We are a Utility Sink Household

Yeah, yeah, it’s been 366 days.  I can’t come up with a good excuse.  I’m a horrible person, yadda yadda yadda.

While the finished product would’ve probably looked a lot better had a professional did it, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.

One Friday when Janie and the girls were out of town I decided to completely remove the bottom bit of sheetrock instead of just patching the holes we already had.  I’m glad we did because some of the insulation needed to be replaced as it had suffered water damage too.


Nice new insulation!


As you can see, not only did we fix the leak, remove mildewy sheetrock and insulation, replace the wall and paint everything again, we gained a new utility sink!  Hopefully I’ll never see another bathroom sink with something disgusting soaking in it.


Well, once again, I am woefully behind on pictures and updates to the blog.

At the end of March, we decided to make use of the slide that Santa brought to us.  It had been on the back porch since Christmas morning, and it was getting plenty of use there.  However, the slide was propped up on the arms of a rocking chair, so it wasn’t very stable.  The girls loved bouncing and going down it every sort of way possible.  But, we have a great place for a playground and I wanted to give the girls more reasons to go outside and enjoy the outdoors.  The prep work was not without some drama, but we did the majority of it during one weekend, with a little bit before and after.  I’m very happy with the end result, and I think the girls are too.
