They couple who built this house and have lived in it since Day 1 – they’re so nice and they really did everything right. They guy . . he’s so picky about everything. His wife had told me that when they had the electrical done, on the places that have more than one switch for a light, he made sure that the switches were done somehow so that every single switch is down when the light is off.
I was just sitting in the breakfast room, looked into the living room and said “Oops! I see something wrong!”
Vince thought I meant something was really wrong, and he said “What’s wrong?” I said “Someone turned off a light and one of the switches is in the wrong position!”
I don’t know if it’s normal for all the screws to be in the exact same position or not but when I get back to Texas I’m going to see. I’ve never noticed them all lined up like that til I looked at that picture but that may be normal or . . it may be more of “everything has to be perfect”.
I find myself looking at all switches as I pass by them to make sure they’re all in the down position if the lights are off.
When/if the power goes out, it will be easy to make sure everything is turned off. I always hate it when the power goes off, we go to bed and wake up with half the lights in the house on.
There are so many switches in this house and I’ve had to laugh thinking . . if a neighbor should be watching, we turn on a dozen lights trying to get the one on that we want. Flip one on, turn it off; flip another on, turn it off. We’ll figure it all out eventually.
