Here’s a thread for random hanging out!
No politics! Random conversation welcome!
Head on over here and let’s continue the conversation n fun!
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
Yeah and empties my bank account
That wasn't your exact quote, but pretty close ;D
I realized we didn’t have one yet! It’s a must have! Especially with you two around
Yes please get out of bed. Do not chance it until it’s checked
We could start a "how old is your house?" thread
Oh, now you've done it! She'll be up till 4am PMT worrying about that heater or others in her house. Fine well I'm going to bed soon so YOU have to stay up with her all night.
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.
I bet there are some stories along that line of thinking.
Hey, some of us got up, went and worked. I think it's great you set that sort of example for us too Double R.
People with stories about their homes and the relative age of them.
Goodnight Buildit! Sweet dreams! Hug them pups!
Yep we are dangerous together. Or I am dangerous and he is just stuck dealing with me. I am not sure which ;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
Have you had it cleaned or cleaned it yourself completely????
You forget where I am! It got down to 45* last night. I could handle that in the morning. I’m safe
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.
See, you need Fort to fly out next week and visit you where it's warm. ;-)
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.
Right?!? The kiddo and I could use some above freezing weather.
DoubleR and I together in person could be dangerous
In that case good night both of you ladies. See you later today. LOL
My place was built in the early 1980s and renovated several times. Went to upgrade the panel and it took three friends of mine (all hard working, honest, red seal electricians) three full days to sort it out. Glad they were working for free
Goodnight everyone. Like @buildit said, I will see you all later today.
@Double R I hope you feel better soon
She’s only welcome if she brings the handsome little one for me to spoil
I hear you! I can’t believe what we’ve found over the years! At this point we just shake our heads and laugh
