One day the water pressure in our kitchen sink dropped sharply. We didn't turn any valves that control water flow and so are at a loss as to what happened.

It is a single sink with a spray hose on the side. Under the sink there are hoses that connect the dishwasher to the water and drain. The sink has a disposal unit on it which is working fine. The dishwasher works fine most of the time.

Sometimes no water comes out when we open the fausets. So we close them and when we come back an hour later or a day later then the trickle of water is back.

Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is it something simple enough that it could be fixed by a person that knows almost nothing about plumbing (namely me)?

Often it's the diverter in your faucet that diverts the water to the hand sprayer. It may have debri in it or need to be replaced. Very common on Delta faucets. This is probably something you can do. Identify the brand of faucet and go to their website to understand the parts and disassembly.
