Yes, but a partial day counts so it can be a tiny bit for day one and 7 with the 5 days in the middle (also excluding shabbos) so practically it is shorter than 7 days.

Does anyone know where to order a custom-sized glass (or plastic but not textured) cutting board? To be used to cover one side of a double sink.

Wooden boards are usually finished with an oil that makes it more or less water proof

Interesting. Do you have an approximate price?

Shops that make wood countertops have scraps.  There's a place on New Utrecht Ave in BoroPark that places sink cut-outs outside for free.  I used two of those  over my flaishig and milchig sinks for years.  Replacing them as necessary. Perhaps you can ask for a scrap at such a shop near you. Wood, formica on one side.

If anyone has ideas for plexiglass or something similar that is transparent that would be great.

just to cover half a sink. Would it be sturdy enough to also put things down on?

Is it only my family or is it a universal phenomenon that every Purim, without fail, at least one of the kids is sick?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
