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?
