Hey everyone, this is just a short (and late) post to tell everyone that there is no *real* post today.
I had originally scheduled this as a simple holiday post, but for some reason it didn’t go through…. then I went out to Lowe’s to go buy a new faucet for my kitchen sink.
My kitchen sink faucet hasn’t been leaking or anything, and the line are fine. However, the base is kind of wobbly, probably because of how the pull-out nozzle works. I imagine it was put in when the house was originally built back in 1992. My wife and I tried to get underneath the sink to tighten the screws, but it wasn’t to be, as the screws had already been stripped, probably from repeated tightening. So it was time to go buy a new faucet.
In case you guys were wondering, after much deliberation we settled on the Delta 19922-SSSD-DST Ashton. Although we didn’t want to buy one that expensive, I wanted it to last. We also wanted something with “high arc” and a”pull-down” function. The “Magna-Tite” docking system was also a plus. Is it worth the hefty price? I dunno, I hope so. I need it to last at least another 10+ years for when we remodel the kitchen. I’m hoping Delta’s Limited Lifetime Warranty helps there. It looks like this:
Although the picture above is the Touch2O model which has the Touch2O function. This lets you just touch the spout to turn it on and off. I don’t really think that function is necessary, or worth the extra money.
Also, don’t worry, we’re getting it installed professionally. I don’t want to mess around with the water hoses and stuff, otherwise the next thing you know my kitchen will be flooded…
I also had the bright idea that since it was a 3 day weekend and both my wife and in-laws were both home with the kids, it was a good idea to replace all my LEDs. I was maybe a little overzealous this holiday weekend. So then, I came home to try to replace all the lights inside and outside my house with LEDs.
It kind of felt like this:

So anyways, Happy Discoverer’s Day (Columbus Day)!
