It’s Dark Out There!!

So, we are in the process of buying an Amish house.  (For those of you not familiar with the Amish building style – we were.lucky to have running water in the house already).I

My hubby and son are the main remodeling crew.  Hubby works, son just got a part-time job, and of course I work also.  So it’s a slow moving process.  We were really excited last January when we got the electricity approved and hooked up!  We’d already been renting for a year at that point.

Anyway, now we have some lights in the main floor, the basement, and the top floor.  My room doesn’t yet have an outlet, so I have my fan plugged into an extension cord for  the next room.

I mentioned to my son today that it would be lovely if I could get a light wired in to my roo .  Clever boy, he reaches behind me and pulls the curtain back. “Voila!” he cries triumphantly!  Light!!!

I have him THAT look.

 “You know,” I said, ” That doesn’t work nearly as well at 2 a.m. “. Which is when I get up for work now.

And we fell on the bed laughing hysterically.

Who knew that living without could invite such sarcasm?
