Got up this morning and half the house had no power, checked the breakers and none were tripped. It's an old house so I figured it was a wiring problem but managed to get to work early albeit wrinkled.
Wrapped up the last of the module specs that were supposed to be done Friday even before anyone else got in. Had a brief meeting before taking 1/2 day off to go home and deal with our electrical problems. Robin got home right after me so I hoped that I would get a quick fix and play "hookie" with her the rest of the day.
I figured that I had isolated the problem to a bad outlet, ran to home depot and picked up a new GFCI outlet and cover, got home and put it in but still no power to the dining room and garage. Did my best at troubleshooting the issue but was left baffled after a couple of hours so I called a professional. Andy came out and tracked the problem to a bad neutral wire in the main bathroom. $85 and an another hour later and we were back in business.
After our electrical adventure we took off to grab some things at Target and grab some clothes for Robin at a nearby clothing store. I always dislike standing around in womens clothes stores while Robin tries things on. I feel like the other women are wondering why I am hanging around, it's uncomfortable feeling like you are making someone else feel uncomfortable but we finally got her things and got out of there. Whew...
On the way home we saw some flowers at the entrance to our subdivision, I stopped and grabbed a few shots. Looks like I have a new theme this week, out with the Neon, in with the spring flowers!
Hope you all had a GREAT day, until tomorrow...
