  • Of all the things I’ve done in my life, I don’t think I’ve ever been as scared as I am about cutting into Irish Woman’s new countertops.
  • Irish Woman is done with the floor in the kitchen, so now it’s time to move an electrical outlet for the new refrigerator..
    • The last time I did electrical work in the kitchen, I blew the house main breaker. To this day  I do not know how I ended up on the other side of the kitchen.
  • We can see the light at the end of the tunnel:  The new appliances will be delivered tomorrow.
    • It’s going to be nice to not do dishes in the bathtub.
  • I’ve been taking an on-line class on one of the new tools we have at work, and I’m learning a lot.  I’ve also learned that when my brain dribbles out of my right ear, it means that it’s full and I should knock off for the day.

    My father showed me once how easy it was to change a switch on a live circuit. When the sparks stopped, he said, “On the other hand, it’s easy to turn the power off.” If I dig around around enough I might still have that half burned through screwdriver.


  4. I was pretty proud of myself that I remembered to turn the water off to the bathroom faucets last week when I had to change out the springs and seats. But I pretty much don’t mess with electricity.
