Just add lightning

After ten days' delay, the electrician has arrived.

He's doing a monstrously good job in there--seven outlets, five ceiling light fixtures, a three-gang switch, a thermostat, a smoke detector, and a power supply for the heated floor, all precisely where I want them, with a minimum of mess and fuss.

Tomorrow: drywall!

I've been wondering what was happening! I'm glad he's doing his stuff, if belatedly.

The delays have been due mostly to the fact that these guys are all moonlighting subcontractors with other full-time jobs. I'm getting some excellent deals. It's a bit inconvenient, but I'm in a very good position to put up with it, since my own calendar is wide open.

I'll be glad to move back into the bedroom--I miss having another room to go into!--but it's not dire in the meantime.

You're going to enjoy moving back so much! (Yes, it will happen.)

I know you speak from experience! And I appreciate it.

I haven't really minded the inconvenience so far, though I am looking forward to having my one "other room" back. What's taken me by surprise is how easy it's been to do without. If I can close off my bedroom, leave my living room furniture on the porch for a month and not miss it, or wear only three plain outfits while most of my wardrobe is inaccessible, do I really need those things?

It's remarkable how easy it's been to contract into a more restricted space. If not for the record rainfall that's keeping me pretty much indoors, I don't think it would bother me at all.
