He's going to relocate the breaker boxes outside, redo the outlets in my bedroom and living room, install an outlet in the garage up by the garage door opener to plug it into and put the outside electrical wires in a pipe which goes up 3 feet in the air. Guess what I'm using my income tax refund for??
That's great news that it doesn't need rewired AND that you have the way to pay for it. Sounds like a good investment to me.

Yes, it is and stuff that really would need doing if I ever wanted to sell the house. At least my girls won't have to deal with THAT anyway.

hey all...it was a great day for the launch. We had loads of people out there today. It started off chilly...38*..but, warmed up to about 52*. I think I got some sun on my face. Had two rocket teams show up.....one drove 3 hrs to get their to do their qualified flights. The other team is the one we saw last week during the school day. They had some things break. We'll meet up with the team captain to give him the part we forgot today. They will rebuild and be ready for the next 2 launches before the deadline. The other teams we see on a weekly bases...well, they never showed up. I'm disappointed...but, hey it's their choice!

Now to go get warm and clean....I'm so tired!!! Just wanted to check in.

Glad that it wasn't a lost day and that some of the teams showed up. Will you be going back to visit them again?

I'll be off and without power for about 5 hours starting at 9 a.m. I'm planning to work in my craft room and get my cards done for the DT's.

Thats a good way to look at it. It amazed me all of the stuff we had to 'fix' to sell the house. I hated that we didn't do it for ourselves but did it for a buyer. You are so smart!

I guess 2 out of 3 isn't bad...their loss entirely. Now driving 3 hours shows that they are serious, good for them! I hope you were able to warm up ok.

3 orange walls were painted yesterday, the accent wall of a dark reddish orange goes up today. So far I love it, it's very different!

We'll finish our commitment to them....even if they aren't that into it. But, I'm counting the days!

Yes, they were serious about it. I'm sure they will be out for their 3rd try. As for warming up....I did take off my heavy coat....I did have my sweatshirt on...along with my keeping my long silky stuff under my jeans. Thought I would take that off one of the trips to the restroom...but, didn't bother. Kind of glad later I didn't.

Maggie...glad you are getting the stuff done on the house. Hopefully the 5 hrs will go quick for you. At least you still have the bathroom working...when we don't have electric...we can flush the toilet once....but, we don't get much water after that.

Dody....you bedroom is going to look like a Country Living set! Ooh-la-la!

Hope everyone has a great day! It's already warmer compared to the high yesterday!!!

I don't know about smart, but I want to feel safe and comfortable in my home and know that there isn't anything wrong anywhere that's going to surprise me one day.

It's almost finished. I have half the lights and applicances back on. He had to go get a pipe bender and will come back and install the rest of the breakers. He will probably have to come back after work tomorrow night to do the outlet in the garage for the garage door opener and also to replace the 8 outlets (4 in the bedroom and 4 in the living room). I need to be able to leave here by 4 to go to my DD's. I'm so glad that I told him to come at 9 this morning instead of 10.

Different is good. I saw your photos on FB yesterday when Bud was painting. Looks good. Can't wait to see it when it's all done with your things back in there and your quilt on the bed.

The time has pretty much flown by. I worked on my 2 cards for my DT's for this week. Just about finished the 2nd one. Really like how they turned out. It was kind of hard because I had to work on the dining room table. There isn't enough light in my stamp room to work with so I kept dragging things out to the other table. So glad too that I finally got all my SU designer paper organized. I actually used some of it today. I just had to look though my portfolio of the DP that I have and pick out which one I wanted to use and then go grab the paper keeper that had that paper in it. So much easier than having to paw through all the paper to find what I wanted. I think I may do this with my small pads too. They are a real pain to look through.

Glad you enjoyed the movie Soni.

I've spent the last hour trying to get my TV in the living room working again after the power outage today. Finally after 4 calls to AT&T, it's working again.

The electrician left me a voice mail and said he had just left my house and it was 7:30! That was from 9 am. with an hour break and it was only supposed to take 5 hours! Looks like everything is back to working again. One thing he told me was that I could resell the breakers that he took out of the old box and replaced and get quite a chunk of change. I'm going to look into that. He'll be back tomorrow night to do the garage door outlet and replace the 8 outlets in the house.

I'm off to bed. Got my photos taken of my cards for this week and the pictures uploaded.

Good morning Soni. What are you up to today?

Good morning Quackers!

Boss is not in yet. Took his wife to the doctor. Not sure what that's all about. Maybe she's having more plastic surgery. Paralegal called in sick, so it's going to be a really quiet day around here. Guess I should be working on the filing.

good morning!

Just heard from one of our club members...he also has teams. Plus the three of us are mentoring a another team together...but he is the contact because he is closer. Well, he was contacted over the weekend...the team says that they have their parts and are ready to build!!! WHAT?? Haven't started that yet? Plus, the larger rocket....haven't even built it either. They need to fly it before April...and then go to Alabama to fly it. Wow...and we thought our teams were behind!!! I reminded him of the saying....."lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part." Soooo...the deadline approaches! Stay turned for the next episode of....."How my world turns!"

Such a long day! Did he charge the same amount even tho it took so much longer? Impressive tat he told you about reselling the breakers & not just pocket them for himself. He totally could have done that saying he was cleaning up the old parts/trash. So you left him alone at your house while you went out? You are way more trusting that I am.

We had agreed on a flat rate of $2500 for the job and he was the one that estimated it would take 5 hours. I'm not paying a penny more even if it did take longer than expected. He was quoting for the job, not paying him by t he hour. I would NOT have had him do the work with that understanding.

Yes, he could have just taken them, but he says he does tell his customers that they can resell them. I guess that's to cover himself if one of his customers knew that or found out after that they could have done it, it would come back to haunt him, so better to be up front about it.

I did leave him at my house, but he was outside. The house was all locked up and he couldn't get in. He had done all the inside work up to that point and only had to finish up stuff outside. He is coming back tonight after I get home to finish up the few things inside the house.

Glad to hear that! I hate having anyone in my house when I'm not there. It doesn't bother lots of people but it sure does me!

We had rain earlier today, but it had quit by the time I left work for home.

Electrician got here about 6:30 and just left. Everything is now DONE! Oh, he even noticed my open hole in my living room ceiling where I'm supposed to have a baffle cover over one of the air vents. After I had the house done years ago, the one that I bought was just not big enough and I have not been able to find the right size at Lowe's or Home Depot. He thinks he has a friend who may be able to find one for me. That would be really nice.

I've got my Pins blog post all ready and now I'm off to get a shower and maybe work on a card. I should do one this week for Teapot Tuesday. I also signed up on The Crafter's Cafe Forum site to take part in an Secret Bunny Swap. I get a free image to use from Robyn's Fetish and then had to send them my address. It 's like Tickle a Teapotter where everyone signs up and you're assigned a name to send your card to. Sounded like fun. First thing I've done with them.

morning all! I worked on a few cards for birthdays this week. I had one 5x7 card that I didn't like well enough to send but liked it too much to toss...ever been there? So I reworked it this morning to sent with a 5x7 pic of our grands.

I am impressed with what you have told us about this guy! I hope he can find that cover for you!

That does sound like fun (Secret Bunny Swap) I hope you enjoy it.

Yes, too many times. That's great that you were able to salvage it to send out.

Me too!

I think it will be fun. Today they posted a challenge to do a FAT page which is just a 4 x 4 card front basically for St. Patrick's Day and again I'm getting a free image from Robyn's Fetish to use for it.

Hey Quackers! Sorry I didn't get on early this morning, but I got up a little late. Then it's been really busy here at the office getting things done. Got a break now - boss left early. And tomorrow is a mediation.

I have an appt. with my Bishop tonight to discuss my calling. We'll see how that goes. Then I have a Visiting Teaching appt. with one of my ladies. Another busy night.
