Went back to get stitches out from last week's accident.  Everything looks pretty good it. It took forever to get them out as they were done tiny as it was face. But the best part was  - I got to shave! Man it was bugging me! I am not a beard man. Just itched constantly. 

Went back up to the house and Sandra and I went back to electric. She finished the cans in the kitchen, I got the 4th floor bath fans and last cans wired, and we started the fire alarms. Now there will be 10 in the house and I should probably put one in the garage as well. I can already see I'm short of three conductor wire. And I'm out of 14-2 as well. Let's do some math. I've used 2- 1000 ft rolls of 12-2; 3 - 250 ft rolls of 12-2; 2 - 250 ft rolls of 14-3; 1 - 1000 ft roll of 14-2; 1 - 250'roll of 14-2. That makes 4500 feet of wire so far not counting the miscellaneous 6-3 and 10-3 that have gone in as well. And I need more!!! I'm going to have over a mile of wire in a house that is 90 feet long! Well and 4 stories. ;-)
