I could cry right now -- but from joy, this time. A couple of weeks back, I finally got so fed up with the "temporary" lighting situation in the kitchen that I got a recommendation for an electrician. Yesterday, I nerved myself up to call the guy. An hour ago, he came in and took a look at it. On Monday, he's going to come in and fix it.

Fix. It.

I will have a completed project in my house. Completed.

I'm not sure I can express how much this means to me. I've done a fair amount of work here myself -- cleaning and reclaiming rooms¹ that were relegated to storage, getting help putting up the drywall, but doing all the mudding and painting myself -- but none of the projects I worked on myself have been finished because I've reached the point with all of them where I need help. Or need to hire someone.

This guy says he can do just about anything, and he says he has worked for both of the Really Big local contracting outfits. And I am seriously considering the possibility of a home improvement loan later this year when I get the van paid off.

Well. We'll see how it goes on Monday. I've already told my brother that the guy is coming in so he can pass it on to the Gecko.

¹ Yes. Rooms, plural.
