Washing machine

Sunday: discover, after placing clothes and liquid detergent in washing machine (now in place under the new countertop) that the machine has no water supply. Either the hoses were not hooked up, or the valves were not turned on. Decline to deal with the problem of getting washing machine out from under counter and out of drain pan to diagnose the exact problem. Haul clothes doused with detergent next door to be washed.

Monday: call Betsy in the morning and report problem. Still not fixed when I get home at 5:30. Call again, get a promise that Jack will come by: he was delayed by problems at another job site. When I get home from Jazzercise after 7 the washer has water and I can run another load of clothes. One step forward, one step back, one step forward...

I suspect nothing much will happen this week, except perhaps the plumber installing the utility sink faucet if it arrives. Jack has had to order more cabinet trim as he was unable to reuse as much as he thought, so we wait on that.

Found a couple of pits in the "granite" countertops, both of which look like places where there was a flaw in the stone and the polishing didn't go deep enough to smooth them out. I'll call the granite place and ask for a service call to see if there's anything to be done. Maybe some sort of epoxy fill--don't know what's possible.
