Just when you think it's safe.....

Had a frustrating time yesterday. One of the outlets in our house felt hot when I went to plug in a lamp. Really hot. DH checked it out, and disconnected it and turned off the circuit for safety. Unfortunately, that was the circuit that the office runs on. And the window AC in the livingroom and the office. Bummer. No AC, and can't work on the computer. Spent most of the day in the bedroom making dishcloth patterns, eating chocolate chips cookies, and watching old dvds. Not as productive a day as I would like, but what can you do?

He put a new outlet in last night, and things are turned back on. Yay! We found out we need to replace all the outlets on that circuit, that the existing ones are not up to snuff for the load we put on the line with our computer and AC. Our place is kinda old, but it's ours! And replacing outlets is better than a fire!

Today looks to be MUCH more productive.

Take care!
