Last night I finally overcame my prediliction for procrastination and fixed the electrical problems. There has been no power to the attic, master bath, kids bath OR the garage for a MONTH. I am such a procrastinator. The freezer has been connected to an extention cord that's plugged into the laundry room. So pathetic.
So I had to replace the GFCI outlet that was bad so the rest of the outlets on the same circut would work again. That meant moving the freezer and replacing that outlet.
After a few stressful moments I realized the GFCI outlet I bought was defective! Grrrr. A quick trip to the store and a new outlet solved the problem. I only broke one wire, so I only had to mess with stripping one.
The hardest part was getting all the heavy duty wires back into the box. I really had to work for that! But now I have power...Horray!
Yesterday I made muffins and chicken stock, now my house smells so yummy that I want to bake all day! But this morning, Maddy and I were very productive. We planted flowers, cleaned her room, made Cranberry-Pumpkin Muffins together,
washed the dishes together, worked on pictures. I edited a photo of Matt to make a Daddy Doll for Super Saturday. I'll run to Target to return a blender that just didn't cut it and today will be full. Maddy is currently writing letters to her Dad. Every few minutes I hear.."How do you spell LOVE? I can spell cake "K-A-K"!"
