This made me laugh. One thing hubby and I never fool around with is electrical fixtures – in our case, it wouldn’t just be screws out of alignment, we’d probably electrocute ourselves. For all you DIYers out there, this one’s for you.

I am in no way an electrician. I know enough just to get myself into trouble. And tonight I didn’t disappoint. About six months ago, the kitchen light needed a new ballast. As I was looking at the ballast I noticed that I could purchase a new fixture for about the same amount that I would be spending for just the ballast. So I purchased the new fixture and installed it myself. No big deal. About a month ago I was sitting in my recliner when I heard this loud bang in the kitchen. I jumped up and ran into the kitchen to find that the shade had fell from the fixture and hit the floor. The shade broke into several pieces and had to be thrown out. Since then we’ve been using the fixture with no shade. I didn’t have a problem with it, my wife did though.
