It’s been weeks since I’ve written about polar bears or graphic design. I was going to hit my blog earlier on the topic of my latest graphic design project when my lights went out. Literally. There was no power outage in the area though, so I ended up having to call a local master electrician here. Good thing I did too because you wouldn’t be reading this blog if the power was still out. Sad, I know.
The guy knew his stuff. I not only had no power coming in but I told him about some wonky stuff going on in this place the last few years. First off, I had light switches that would make fizzing sounds (he called them “hot”). That sound always freaked me out. I felt like the place would burn down at any given time. Secondly, I had lights that would decide when they wanted to turn on and when they didn’t. Seriously, I had lights that I could never get to turn on that would just come right on in the middle of the night. Third, I had a ceiling fan that would give me light but no fan – and here in South Carolina, no fan at night is NOT good. Fourth, my bedroom breaker would always turn off when I used a hair dryer or vacuum in certain outlets.
I guess you could say the guy was long overdue. Anyway, he fixed it all up within a few hours and I’m back up and running. I’m grateful for electricity and electricians who can fix it 🙂 Seriously, what would we do without it? I’ve been without electricity for weeks before during hurricane damage and it’s hell.
So now I’m back to my blogging. I’ve got to say that I’m kind of surprised I’m still keeping up with this. I’ve started blogs before and usually it tinkers out quickly. I’m the kind that has lots of balls up in the air at all times. Don’t worry though, I think I’m here to stay. Thanks again to the electrician for quickly saving the day!
