It is funny what you discover when you start doing work on a home. It starts with paint, then with the floors being replaced, then the closet doors (I have 6 closets!). As we painted, we discovered that who ever painted before didn’t bother covering the electrical outlets and switches, so they were caked with paint and kind of dangerous.
I managed to give myself a minor shock a few weeks ago when plugging in my hairdryer. My friend’s dad came over on Sunday to show how to change the electrical outlets, which was really nice of him. Electricity + Sholeh = Not Good.
I feel like I haven’t really been home enough to do everything I want to do. The last month has been super busy, and it doesn’t look like things are going to slow down anytime soon. I sometimes wish I could just shut everything off for a week and hide out like a hermit in my cozy home. At least I have internet now!
Part of the reason that I still haven’t posted photos is that I feel like it isn’t done yet. I want to get the scraps out of my living room, install doors, and put the finishing touches on. I promise it will be soon! Thanks to my parents, it is furnished, which is a huge relief.
Have you ever had home improvement projects go terribly wrong, or have something hilarious happen? Tell me about it in the comments, I love hearing about other people’s experiences.
