9-1-1 on speed dial

I did it.  I stood in my basement… in the dark, with a flashlight, and stared at the electrical panel.

But I was not alone.

No, we didn’t blow another fuse.  Alan was installing a new circuit breaker for our *new dishwasher.  I’ll admit that I was a little nervous.  Not about the creepy crawlies hanging over my head in the dark – but about watching my hubby get electricuted.  There was no reason to be worried.  He doesn’t have a track record of botching home projects.  But still… it was electricity he was messing with. 

I am so thankful that I married a man that understands things like circuits, nail guns, lawnmowers, fuel lines, brakes, and roof shingles.  I love that I can dream about new bedroom shelves and he can build them out of leftover (aka FREE) wood.  Or that I can wish for a dishwasher in a dishwasher-less kitchen and he knows how to properly install one.  I think I’ll keep this guy!

*by “new” I mean that it’s been sitting in our kitchen since the middle of August with the lovely blue protective plastic still on the front of it.

    I have to admit – I love having a handy man around the house – Steve does all of our wiring too and it’s great that we can get things done and not have to hire anyone to do it. Congrats on the new dishwasher!

    Ah, lucky girl. Mike tries really hard but he’s no handy man. He DID manage to install our new dishwasher a couple years ago without killing himself or breaking anything, but I think that was only because I prayed really hard while he was doing it. ha!
