I had something very different in mind for today’s post and then it happened. As I lay in bed late last night, I put my book down and grabbed the TV remote. I was in the mood for a little giggle and I have episodes of Friends always at the ready on my Tivo box. At the moment I pushed the power button everything turned off. Pretty powerful remote, huh?
At first we thought we lost power throughout the house. But when I got out of bed I noticed that I had forgotten to turn off the hall light. Hmmm….so we lost power in the bedroom and the other bedroom. I know this because I lost my internet connection and that’s where all that fancy computer stuff is.
My poor husband, after getting to bed way too late two nights in a row, finds himself out in the garage checking the breakers. Nothing was tripped. After investigating (saying he knows a thing or two about electrical is a colossal understatement) he has determined that something has burned out somewhere in the walls. At least I think that’s what he said. I, on the other hand, know nothing about electrical.
That’s what we get for moving into an old house that has been poorly maintained. Here I sit with extension cords running all over the house to keep things powered up so Princess and I can stay cozy in bed. Did I mention the lack of insulation and drafty windows?
