it’s electric

I had a couple of outlets in the living room that needed to be replaced (the piece of plastic by the ground plug was chipped). Since I was going to be doing electric work, I decided to replace some of the regular outlets throughout the house with the ones having a USB port. I also ended up replacing a few outlets in Jake’s room (they looked a little worse for the wear). I did all of the work today. This was my first project dealing with electricity, so if you hear of a house fire in Johnstown Saturday night, you’ll know where that came from. Seriously, though, there really isn’t anything difficult about replacing an outlet, so hopefully I did everything correctly (my outlet tester said that I did). The new outlets look good and the USB outlets are going to be convenient–I may replace even more in the future. We’ll see how it goes.
