Sunday Night Quickie
Day 1876 (?)
Sometimes on Sunday night all you have time for is a quickie. So hold on, we’re going for a quick spin.
Made good progress on the powder room this weekend. Mudding is done, room is primed and about 85% of the beadboard is up. The bead board is only going up as high as chair rail height, but there’s a bit of cutting involved. Got to keep in mind too, this is a powder room, only 7’3″ x 3″7″. I have to be careful when I’m painting in there. If I bend over wrong, I’ll get an assfull of what ever is on the other wall. Not a good look.
Had a minor freak out Saturday morning too. I was turning on the vent fan in the powder room. Moved the switch kinda slowly. It tripped the GFCI outlet. That’s not so bad in and of itself. What sucked was that the outlet wouldn’t reset. THAT kinda worried me. Did a little digging, thought that maybe I had the line and load sides of the GFCI bassackwards. Also had a faulty 3-way switch on the kitchen light circuit, so I just added some goodies to my shopping list to make the fixes.
This morning while trouble shooting my wiring, I discovered that both problems were wiring mistakes made by my on staff electrical specialist (me – heh!). Managed to correct both problems without using any of my new parts. Now I have working circuits and I get to return the unused parts. Those GFCI outlets aren’t cheap either.
So here it is Sunday evening and I’m sitting here watching my fantasy teams struggle. Both had leads earlier in the day, but injuries really hurt. Now I’m just watching my slim leads slowly evaporate. Ahhh well. At least I’m not in it for the money. Hard to be that serious about a fantasy. Supposed to be fun, right?
Time for sleep. Gotta rest up for the big counseling session tomorrow afternoon. I R thrilled.
