Oxymoron Diaries | Working Vacation

Oxymoron Diaries | Working Vacation. Jeff Foxworthy the comic and actor once said that "you must be a redneck if you live anywhere where the temperature varies 50 degrees in one day." Well, I live in NW Ohio and usually in late March it averages around 44 degrees. Yesterday it hit 84 degrees and the low was low fifties. Not quite a fifty degree variance, but darn near close! In fact it's been in the low to mid eighties for almost a week. And the week before that it was in the seventies. Most years we have 15 inches of snow right about now! oxymoron diaries | working vacation

So, what to do, what to do ... today, what to do. I don't wanna work. But I gotta.

So, I have mapped out my day to include relaxation AND work. I've done my Top 5 Things To Do Today and those five include "play in the garden dirt" and "sit on the patio doing nothing." The other 3 are business-related.

In my defense, we had a major electrical issue that could have burned the house down, so most of this week has been spent with large portions of the house in darkness before our favorite electrician could decipher the problem. I'm told it's not good when you turn on a lightswitch and all the lights blink furiously while simultaneously making a SIZZLING sound. Not good at all. Did I mention that they then simply went dead? Turns out we have two problems. The sizzling circuit has been corrected. The electrical panel that was manufactured by a company that's been nicknamed "Fire Pacific" has not.

Hmmmm, I think I forgot to add to my Top 5 Things to do today the following ... purchase more smoke detectors.

Good morning Dee. Sounds like you should be getting those smoke detectors rather than blogging about it. Now go get them.
