I had a dilemma in my garage. My freezer was defrosting. After checking the extension cord, the plug, then the circuit breaker, the outlet was still dead. Now thinking like a female who knows absolutely nothing about electrical outlets, I decided to try other appliances in the hope the electric would start flowing. I know, you're probably laughing! What was I thinking??? I choose my curling iron -- it didn't work. Then I tried my alarm clock. That was dead too. After a phone call to a friend it was suggested I search for a GFCI outlet. OK so what it that? An outlet with a breaker switch. Now if you could see my garage, Oh my! A three car garage with wall to wall boxes from floor to ceiling. See why the panic? The thought of ripping apart my garage was overwhelming. For motivation I tried telling myself it was a good excuse to weed out those unwanted items stored along the walls.
The next afternoon my neighbor walked over to chat while I was deciding what wall I should tackle first. I was quick to complain about the task of looking for the GFCI outlet. So what do you think happened next? Yep, he pulled out two items from a wall and presto! There was the outlet I needed to find. Kudos' and many thanks to my neighbor for a job quickly done. It resulted in the inspiration for this week's digital stamp.
My freezer is up and running and my garage cleaning is back on the list for another day. Enjoy this week's FREEBIE. It's free all day Sunday under the FREEBIES TAB.
Enjoy and Y'all come back now!
