houston, we have power

yes, i'm back. i know, it was only supposed to take a couple of days BUT when the electric company does not show up between 8 and 8:30 like they said that they would and it takes 5 phone calls to get someone who will respond so you don't get the power off until after 5, you know this portends of things to come. ..and it did.

i did tell you that we decided the guys that wired this house were drunk and on drugs? from what dh told me, i think they shared some with the inspector! besides things being wired incorrectly, they weren't up to code. i mean they weren't up to code when the house was built.

oh, and it wasn't grounded.

and if getting the power turned off was a pain, getting it turned back on was just about as easy. talk about left hands and right hands not talking! we were cleared to have the power turned on before lunch...it took lots of phone calls to get it turned back on...after 5pm mind you. AND i got a call this morning to see if we were ready to have it turned back on.

but everything seems about right now and i have computer access so i am a happy camper....well, except for over 2000 emails!

but i have most of that fixed.
