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?

  1. Sounds wonderful…and very, very busy. Great curtain pull trick from your son. You’ll have to think up a good prank to return the laugh.
