Bad Wiring, Bad

The wiring in our house is very bad, as I have said in a previous post. Well, this morning I blew the fuse, yes, we still have fuses in our house. Anyway, I blow the fuse because the air conditioner was on full blast, and I tried to turn on the dryer so I could dry the baby's diapers. As soon as I pushed the button to start the dryer, everything went out! So I called the guy that is in charge of re-doing our house and he called the electrician, who came over and did what he could for now, but we do not have air-conditioning right now, so we are having to do with just fans. Oh, the joys of original wiring.

They had thought about waiting to do anything until a week from this coming Monday. I think the electrician has decided we can't wait that long. He told me he is surprised we still have a house.

Not much going on today. My sweet hubby stayed home again today to recuperate from yesterday, so he and I just got back from Lowe's where we bought another Purple Persian Lilac and a couple containers of moss roses to plant around our deck in back.

Baby girl has been trying to cut her upper teeth for the last couple of weeks, so she is real cranky!

Nothing much else going on. I might start dinner pretty soon, We're having a salad with fruit, YUMMMMM!!!

Yes, I know it has been over a month since I've blogged anything,SORRY!!
We had a wonderful time on our vacation, up to a point, which I will get to in a minute. It was raining the day we left, and rained the whole time we were traveling( hubby was riding the motorcycle)! Still raining when we got to Arkansas, we put up our tents in between rain drops. It rained for 4 days after we got down there, at least the temperatures were nice, not to hot. We did have good weather going to the Lake of the Ozarks, and good weather while we were there.

In the meantime, while we were at the lake, we were robbed, again! They took of with our brand new TV and some DVD's. Still left our Lord of the Rings set, and our Harry Potter movies! Go figure!

So, now that we are home, we are starting work on our house on the things that need to done. First up, putting a deck on the back. It is gorgeous! The front part of our front porch has been redone, and it looks real nice, also! Next up, the WIRING, which is horrible. Actually, it's original to the house, so my house is basically a matchstick just waiting to be lit. I think they are going to wait until this heat wave is over with, at least I hope so. Because once they get started, I will not have electricity during the day while they work on it. I now have a 10 month old baby living here, can't go without electricity.

Yes, you read that right. My youngest step-daughter and her husband and baby have moved in for a while. It is actually nice having the baby here. She is starting to walk by herself now. She has been holding onto mine or mom's finger(she still does most of the time) but she is getting better about walking on her own. If any of you read Candy's blog, you know her baby girl will be 1 this month. My granddaughter is exactly one month younger than Candy's baby girl. So she will be 1 next month on the 30th.

On another note, I would like prayer for my husband who has osteo-arthritis in his neck and cervical spine. He stayed home from work today because of it. It started bothering him last night, and got to hurting so bad it made him sick to his stomach. He has not felt well all day, and now has a heating pad on his neck.
