Electrical in our Addition is Finally Done!

It looks like Will got all of the electrical finished up this weekend! He has been working on getting everything wired since March or April. It was around Easter time when he started. We have been cleaning it up and getting everything organized so when the inspector comes he is not walking through a big construction mess. Were hoping that the inspector will be able to come out tomorrow morning, and then if there is anything that needs to be fixed, Will can get it fixed by the end of the day. Even more than that, we are hoping that nothing will need to be fixed and that everything is correctly wired and up to code.

That means the next step is getting insulation up and then drywall! I might actually have drywall up in my addition, at least some of it before the end of the month. How exciting is that! The electrical took way longer than we were hoping, but now that we have (hopefully) gotten past this phase things should move along quickly!

It was 2 years ago (and 2 full pregnancies ago) in August that we decided that we were going to build an addition because we couldn't find the right house. And at that time our house was too small for the 3 kids we had. Now we have actually been working on the addition for 14 1/2 months...and it has started to get a bit overwhelming.

I can't even believe that we are going to be putting up actually walls on the addition this month. I don't think I could be any more happy than I am right now!

I once asked my mother-in-law how she could take care of 3 kids....she told me that one kid would have been more troublesome, with 3, they could play together...is it true?

Thanks, Lisa, for adding me to your friend list in Foodbuzz.

Angie,

Your mother-in-law has a good point...one kid was very easy to take care of though, the jump from 1 to 2 kids was the hardest, but each addition since then has been fairly easy. They do play well together(and they fight like brothers too!) and there are plenty of times when it is nice for everyone to have someone to play with. When big brothers are gone, it is much harder to take care of little brothers...no one to help out LOL!
