We're wired up!

TJ drilled all the holes in the walls for the wiring and I nailed all the electrical outlet boxes to the studs to prepare for Adam's arrival.  He got here about 1:20 yesterday and we started on the wiring.  First we had to look through all the wiring that was already in the ceiling for the lighting that was already there, and figure out where everything went.  That took some time.
But we had started running the wires through the walls by the time TJ got home from work at 4...
At 6 or so we decided to go out for supper, so we headed over to Plaza Morena.  We got there just in time I guess, because when we left there was a long line waiting to be seated. After that we had to run to Lowes to get a few more things, and more wire.
When we got back it was dark out and we didn't have any lights hooked up in the basement yet.  Ooops, we didn't really think about utilizing the natural light a little longer.  We called Jeremy and Jennifer to see if they had lights we could use while we finished the wiring.  They brought a few over, and headed out, but then they came back.  So that was a nice surprise.  They said they felt bad about just leaving when they didn't have anything to do at home anyway, so they stayed and helped us finish hooking up the lights.  Special thanks to them, otherwise we would have been working into the wee hours of the morning to get finished!
