A quick note!

Well for some reason our power keeps going on and off. It's only half of the house, but it's the half that my computer is connected to, so I'm having some difficulty getting my posts done today. On the plus side, I did find a new site that is perfect for finding a repair-person: www.thumbtack.com

This site let me put in specifically what I was looking for, along with information about the problem I was having, and then sent my information out to electricians nearby that could handle my problem. They all sent me back quotes and information about themselves and I was able to pick the one I liked best. It was so much easier than browsing through the internet on my phone, calling them all up one by one, making lists, etc. So we have a guy coming out to take a look tomorrow, and hopefully we'll be up and running like normal by Monday. If I don't post tomorrow, it's not because I took a day off, it's because the power won't stay on long enough for me to write anything, and writing on my smart-phone is difficult!

Thanks for understanding!

  1. haven't been but longing to try it out

  2. Nice blog...I hope all works out for you...electrical troubles stink!

  3. A couple of years ago we had an issue with our electricity kinda like yours, it was very weird , we had power on the first floor of the house and laundry room but all the second floor was out. A situation like this can get on your nerves and be very frustrating but just remember that God won't give you more than you can handle, just don't pay to much attention to it and don't let a little issue like this take your joy away. I hope you get everything fix very soon and you don't need to apologize we all understand. Have a great day!
