    I live in a VERY old house. You’d be scared if you saw the wiring that was in it. Lol! I have practice in these things

    I love how you gently steer us to a thread for our random thoughts and life problems ;D

    So I am trying to decide if I want to get out of my warm bed to go down my cold hallway to get my one last cabinet heater that isn't in use and use it in my master bath instead of the current heater that tripped the GFI.

    Funny how my sister did the exact same thing, buying a 100 year old home because it had charm. She has since learned charm is another way of saying, "Attracts repair crews". LOL

    It’s ok! You just don’t want to play anymore! We get it!
    I’ll probably be up hacking anyways.
    Plus as long as she doesn’t plug that one back in she’s fine till morning.

    Yep we are dangerous together. Or I am dangerous and he is just stuck dealing with me. I am not sure which ;D:D

    I unplugged the possibly bad heater and plugged in the other new one that I have.

    I might try starting a fire in the old stove tomorrow. It is cold in the original part of the house.

    Don't let Fort keep you up too late. Her threats to place your bra outside if you fall asleep is an empty one. LOL

    Do you mean the old stove? No. My neighbor came over and started a few fires in it for me. I wanted to get the chimney swept and inspected but the house is really cold so heat is sounding great right now.

    I am going to sleep soon too. I set my alarm for the butt crack of dawn so that I can do more pre-cleaning before my neighbor comes over to help me in the morning. My late husband's parents are coming to visit for the weekend. I am trying to have the house clean (ok, maybe semi-clean) and warm before they get here.

    Heating fuel will be delivered tomorrow too. I am hoping my furnace will go back to working like it was.
