The power is on, everything works, and we're spending the weekend cleaning and getting settled back into our house!
I spoke to the owner of the electrical contractor who did the work yesterday evening, and he didn't put up a single vestige of a fight about reimbursing us for the whole hotel cost ($1407 and change) - in fact, he was about to contemplate sending back the amount we paid for the original service call and repair we had done in October, but I told him we weren't worried about that, we had a legitimate problem that needed to be repaired, and we expected to pay something for that.
I suppose that was silly of me, I could have come away making money on the deal, but I wanted to be fair to him, since they've been nothing but helpful and fair to me since we brought their mistake to their attention. So he's cutting me a check for $1500 on Monday and once we receive it, the Electrical Saga that has overtaken our lives since October of last year will be over.
Next on our plate, the saga of getting our teensy condo ready to sell and finding a new house. That ought to be a doozy.
