I started in the basement again finishing up a light under the stairs where you go down. We turned this into another storage area, and it will be dark once the dry wall is on.
But I had trouble hammering the staples in, because my wrists were so sore. I perservered. Then I went on to adding another duplex recepticle on the East wall, and managed to get it in as well.
But then I started to add another duplex in the office room, and this is where I ran into the hard wood studs that again stopped the drill dead. I kept at it and finally got the wood drilled. By now, my left wrist was really hurting, because each time the drill stalled it twisted my arms against the torque.
I managed to pull the wire and finish the staples but I knew I could go no farther until I could heal up some on my arms. I just walked away and went back upstairs.
I spent the afternoon getting a lock that was replaced last week by my son re keyed. When I arrived at the lock smith, he showed me that the lock could be re keyed by inserting a little clip into the face and putting in the correct key. He didn't even charge me anything! I came home and re read the instructions, and there was nothing there about re keying, honest!!
We had our youngest grand daughter over here this afternoon and I spent the rest of the day playing with her. That is more fun than wiring a bunch of bare wood studs any day!
