What with all the foofaraw trying to get back on the internet and dealing with spambots and the parental visitation and bloody murder and the holidays and so forth, I almost forgot to mention some good news: We had much of our house rewired earlier this month.
Now we have power in the ceiling, meaning our overhead lights and fans work. It was almost a year exactly since we got power but that was only a partial quick fix. For a whole year we’ve had power only in half our receptacles, and we’ve been using floor lamps.
But now we have light from above.
And as an added bonus we’ve got sheetrock up in most of the lower floor.
There’s still a lot to be done. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of that sheetrock has to come back down for some more electrical and plumbing work. Two steps forward, one step back. That’s progress.
