Before going to bed I noticed that my bedroom wall outlets weren't working. My frog vivarium was dark and alarm clock wasn't blinking. I had messed with the wiring earlier that day trying to install my new light switches before realizing I didn't buy three way switches. Apparently I didn't wire it up properly since the bedroom wall wasn't working so I figured it was a quick fix. With the bathroom paint complete (or so I thought) I figured I'd go ahead and fix it before going to bed. So I found the right breaker, killed the power and put the wires where I thought they should go. Somewhere along the way of rewiring I managed to get more misplaced wires as the power went out on our bathroom closets too. So it went until around six in the morning when I finally sat down to clear my head and draw out what I knew about the wiring schematic so far. I went online for help and finally managed to get a better idea of how my bathroom was wired. At some point of going back and forth, from the bathroom to the garage, I somehow forgot to turn off the breaker and got a nasty little buzz from my screwdriver. It evidently woke me up pretty well as I finally got it the right combination - or maybe I just got lucky. I really didn't give a shit at that point since it was around eight in the morning and I was more than a little foggy headed and frustrated. The lesson? Always write down your wiring schematic before you start rewiring and leave wiring projects alone until you've had a good night's sleep.
We've been watching infomercials far too much these days. I swear I almost bought Time Life's Soft Rock Collection a few days ago. I did learn about an incredible product the other night though on DIY's late night programming. It's called a Saw Stop. I really wasn't too excited about the product until I saw the demonstration of it and my jaw dropped. I must admit there have been a few times when working with power tools I have quite literally counted my fingers in amazement. When I get around to working with my table saw more it's a must have. Watch the video!!
Anyway, I guess I'll get back to painting and ripping out tiles.
