The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 288 - Unfinished Business

We did so well tackling our own house projects this morning (fixing the master toilet and doing yard work)
That we decided to tackle one of my parent's house projects this afternoon
(Or technically two projects if you count helping finish off their flat screen tv wall mount)

The downstairs powder room in getting a new vanity (sink, drain, faucets, know the deal)
And while Steve is more than experienced to take on such a project, we did hit a very large snag
The location of the existing plumbing coming out of the wall is quite low
And the vanity, sink, and drain sit quite high...
So naturally when installed the new drain pipe does not reach the new p-trap pipe

Sounds like an easy fix, but the p-trap is a 1-1/4" diameter pipe and so is the drain pipe
So the piece we to use to fill the gap between the two needs to fit inside the p-trap pipe
While fitting over the drain pipe...and of course this came to light after 2 previous trips to Home Depot,
And after Steve had already been working for 3 hours
So we called it quits for the evening and took my mom up on the offer of a free dinner

Still bothered by not finishing his task, Steve is currently looking up extension pipes on the internet
And good news everyone (or just mom) He found the piece we need!!!
Looks like you will get a working sink down stairs
