Junior was home on spring break and we had a great time together as a family for a week. He brought a friend home and it was WONDERFUL! (yes, I said wonderful) to cook for 'a crowd' again! That is one of the things that I miss since children have gone hither and yon. I am still having a difficult time cooking for three. Along with the wonderful was the the weird.
Now, back to the post title...
We had a leak under the bathroom sink a while back. We fixed it, but it seems that the water had weakened the fiberboard vanity cupboard. Junior just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, (leaning on the sink,) and BAM! the vanity crumbled, (literally) and the sink fell! (Along with the plumbing.)
Now for that post title...
Junior called me at work right before I left on Friday and those were the first words he said to me over the phone. Since I was getting ready to leave for the day, I told him just to wait until I got home. (And...to turn the water off to the bathroom!)
Of course, I thought the worst on the way home. I had visions of water and sink parts everywhere...
Arriving at home I was met at the door by Junior who kept saying, "Honest, Mom, I didn't do anything....honest!" So we climbed the steps together and entered the bathroom.
What met my eyes was a vanity in crumbled pieces, with some pieces looking more like sawdust...and a sink with plumbing still partly attached sort of 'hanging' at a 45 degree angle.
I started laughing...
It just looked so silly.
And Junior was so verclempt!
His friend yelled from downstairs, "He yelled at me when I started to laugh..."
Soon I was laughing so hard, I was crying. Our ugly old white vanity with the ugly brown sink that was ugly and old when we bought the house 27 years ago was finally history!
I hated that ugly thing. But there never was a really good (enough) reason to replace it. Enough other work needed to be done to keep other household items functioning, so the ugly, yet VERY functional vanity and sink were way down on the list.
Well, not any more!
After a weekend of five people and one bathroom without a bathroom sink, the plumber arrived this morning at 7:45am.
And just look what is in our bathroom now!
Isn't it pretty?
