Katie... dh will be gone for 5 days, home for 4, and then gone again for another 5 days. Super crappy.
The electrician finally found the problem... a hidden GFI unit in a closet, buried behind stuff. Who puts a GFI receptacle in a closet? And furthermore, who connects it to another GFI unit so that when one trips, the entire upstairs shorts out? Crazy. Anyway, that's fixed and the ceiling is patched, but I hardly slept at all last night b/c of my cold plus Austin got up a million times, Avery got up a million times, and now both appear to have my cold. So AWESOME!
Becky, glad to hear Levi is much better. Maybe our trashed houses can get together and commiserate.
