Let there be light...or at least the right switches

 Happy Friday Ya'll! Here's the crazy that's already happened here before 9am!

Have you ever felt so stupid you wanted to disappear? I had one of those moments this morning. Long story short we've never been able to get our lights over our garage to work. We've lived here 5 years and no lights over the garage, ever.
This past week I had another electrical issue so I called in my favorite handyman, Eric from the Good News Guys, come out to work on that and look into our lighting issue. This is an awesome group of guys that donate a portion of their earnings to do mission work. I also feel safe having them in my house when it's just me and the ginger.
So he fixes the other issue and starts in on the lights. He took the light fixtures off and looked at those and still couldn't figure out what was wrong. Then he mentioned to me that maybe the switch at the front door isn't the one for those fixtures. I was like, WTF? Why wouldn't the switch at the front door work the outside lights over the garage?

Front door switch...why doesn't this work my lights over my garage???

Nope, the switch for my outside lights is tucked away in my garage behind a dryer that doesn't work and beside my extension ladder.
I had no idea these switches were even there...geeze.

YAY! Yeah ignore my house number all falling off and shit, nothing a little Gorilla Glue won't fix.



  1. oh my! you shouldn't feel stupid at all! that was just a terrible placement for the light switch!

    1. Yeah Rawra, there's a lot of crazy about our house. Until this past week we had three rows of bushes in front of our house. The people that built this house were cray. Love you! Miss you!
