The dishpan thing works okay -- but it's a lot of work. Having a cat who is intensely interested in the process of carrying a dishpan full of partially rinsed dishes to the water source and bringing them back fully rinsed makes it even more work. Holden Wu is definitely a member of the Underfoot Wu family. I've cut way back on the amount of cooking I do.
I'm hoping to buy plumbing parts Friday and do the work Sunday. Between then and now, I'll do a better investigation of the source of the leak and modify my plans accordingly.
Tam was unable to get to the lawn and I can't run a mower or weedwhacker yet. (All that vibration is too much.) I admitted this to our neighbor by way of apology, and she promptly offered to have her lawn guys take care of the front yard! That's when you know you have a good neighbor. They showed up and had it done in a half-hour this morning.
There's still so much to do and I'm not done adjusting to the changes in my vision. Sometimes it seems like I spend all my time scurrying with a tidal wave arching over me, barely managing to stay ahead. Tonight's job is trash-gathering and litterbox-changing, so we'll be ordering out for dinner.
