It started upstairs in our bedroom (we have a bungalow). There are two overhead lights, one along the stairs and one in the main part above the bed. The stair one has a switch at the bottom of the stairs..yes, only at the bottom. It was a pain in the tooshie: 1st on > walk up> 2nd on > walk down > 1st off > walk back up. Yes, I know this makes me sound lazy, but everynight...it gets old fast. So you can understand that when it stopped working a year ago - we didn't care much. We just looked silly (if there were lights to see) walking zombie like to find the 2nd light...which just went pppfffhhhttt last month. It is the pull chain overhead kind - can't find one in the stores. Yet, we still put it off & just use the headboard lamp and still look silly.
Last week, the kitchen outlets stopped working. Just the outlets for plugging in...the light switches work just fine. This one we can't ignore. There is currently a domino electrical game going on. The kitchen appliances > sewing area > added to computer = scared to use all at once if = kabboomm!!!
I think I need to make a list of everything that is falling apart (like our kitchen cupboards which are minus 1 door). I titled this blog to include Home...so I think I shall start here.
And as you can see.. the kitchen needs some cosmetic work...but before you say anything...the color was done by us, on purpose :) Every room in the house has it's own color.
More to come on our fun 1947 bungalow that is not equipt to handle our 2009 world.
