Electricity and Asthma

Thank you all for your insights and experience. I'm still sorting through it. I have an appointment with my physician for Tuesday.

The husband and boys vaccuumed and dusted while I grocery shopped for our dinner guests, and it seems to have helped. I'm breathing well and calmly. I didn't cough the whole evening. I'm feeling better.

The electrician came by to fix the last outlet and get paid. He also figured out that Roland had wired the dining room fixture just fine. It wasn't working because the switch was broken. He put in a new switch. The job came in under budget which was nice. Well, it came under the maximum "don't let me ask for extra outlets if it pushes me past this number" budget -- and that only if we don't count the attic fan which will have to be replaced when the weather improves. Anyway, I liked the guys, for all the trouble there was with getting the job done on time. I would still recommend them, with the appropiate warning of course.

The electrician helped Roland get the dining room light installed. Before he left he looked at it and said, "I'm so glad those could be saved. They're hammered brass and bronze you know." I didn't, and it is nice to know.

Then they left, giving the dogs one last treat each.

I think they are really going to miss my dogs.


  1. I'm really happy for Roland that he was vindicated!

  2. Glad you're feeling better :)

  3. I am glad that Roland did it right and that you are not going to have to pay someone to rewire all of them.
