4/26/2006 - Wednesday

Our couch will get delivered sometime this week (according to the salesman). In fact, it might even come today:) This is very exciting, and somewhat life changing. Usually, Kevin and I just hang out on the rug on our living room floor for a few minutes after dinner. I am a little worried that if we actually have somewhere to sit down, nothing will ever get done.

For example, after dinner last night, Kevin got motivated to install what is basically a whole-house surge suppressor. It is a little device that mounts on the utilitiesí box on the outside of the house (the junction box where the meter is). The idea is that should lightning strike nearby, or if there is some other large surge of electricity on the power lines, the little black box will suppress it before it enters the house and our precious electronics inside the house will not be harmed. (Our computers are on a ups, and would likely be fine, but a large power surge could easily fry the electronic brains of our washer or oven). It turns out that Kevinís timing was very fortuitous. We had a thunder-storm last night that was producing some really scary lightening. Had Kevinís computer not been protected by the surge suppressor, a surge suppressing power strip, and the ups, I am sure it would have been toast: )
