The electric woes continue and it is like I feared, though not a total rewiring of the house, but a partial rewiring. We have our upstairs television back, but no tree lights. Before we sell the house, we'll have to get everything up to code, and we do plan to sell in the next couple of years so we can move someplace more pleasant.
Santa was very generous this year. It was nice to be able to have money again to buy presents. Hubs LOVES his Space & Beyond box and can't wait for the quarterly installment to arrive. I wanted to buy it for him last year, but couldn't put the funds together, so at least Christmas was easy this year! In addition to the money we sent the kids, we also sent some potential places for them to buy scratch & dent/discounted/gently used appliances--they want a stackable washer & dryer set.
I got myself a couple of stocking stuffers too--a hair iron set (which I didn't add to the stocking set-up)--it does waves, crimps or straightens. Got some body spray because I'm almost out, and an essential oil. I put the last two items in my stocking, then forgot, and when hubs's stocking became too stuffed, I put the stocking stuffers that were more household items (extension cord, reusable zip lock bags, windshield de-icer, etc.) in mine but forgot I put my stuff in there too, yet brainfarted when I told hubs to unpack mine too...he laughed when he got to the vanilla body spray & claimed he didn't want to smell like a cupcake! lol( Collapse )
