I had a heck of a weekend. Friday my wife said she wanted to replace the kitchen ceiling fans and lights. I didn’t want to do any of that since they all worked, and we don’t have the money for any big issues if they arise.
In the process of taking those two lights down she wanted me to replace the light over the sink, and move the fan in the dining room to the other side of the dining room and get a new light there as well. In total it came to four new lights and moving a fifth. It was a long Friday evening, and it carried into Saturday morning.
This is the fan from the dining room moving to it’s new location.
Here is where it came from. More on this spot later.
The two kitchen lights were here.
I installed the lights in the kitchen and my wife painted the ceiling.
Saturday morning kept me busy and I had to stop to head out to the golf outing!
The night before my co-worker and I went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls.
The weather was great Saturday and my team was ready to do a mediocre job haha. 😀 Here is my golf cart mate Jake, he works third shift and is the son of the lady in accounting.
My dad is hitting here, and then we had another guy in sales on our scramble team.
I decided to run to the sports store in town and get a nice shirt, glove, and pants. Lastly before my dad and I headed out we grabbed a split 6 pack for the day.
I got home fully expecting to get the rest of the lights up and going. I put the fan up and the new light up, only to find out that they didn’t turn on… I fiddled with the both of them until I had to stop. It was very frustrating.
That took us straight into Sunday where I worked on them again. I stopped part way though because I ran out of knowledge and patience. I called my dad over and we did end up getting the fan working on the switch. I haven’t put it back up because we still can’t get the new dining room light working. It is the only light, that I know of, that is running on the only knob and tube wire run that we have in the house. I have tried every combination that I can think of and something must be disconnected somewhere. Knob and tube wiring is not up to any code anymore because it is not grounded, so I don’t think any real electrician will wok on it without replacing it. That would mean tearing up my ceiling and wall possibly and I don’t want to or have the money to do that. So I have to find someone willing to help me out and until then my dining room will be a mess.
In other news I got work today that I have an interview for my boss’s job tomorrow at 2pm. I may not be posting if I am still preparing for that. I’ll be a bit nervous and figuring things out. It would be a huge leap for me and the job description looks scary but I think I could handle it if it came down to it. Wish me luck! If I don’t get this job which is very possible, I hope to have the ability to move into my co-workers job.
That is all for me today, I hope you have a great Monday! I’ll see you tomorrow or Wednesday! 😀 😀
