Did I Order THIS?

So at the moment, when you walk in my kitchen, we have the trash area to the right with a tall can and a recycling bin. At the far opposite corner we have the pet feeding stations with extra bowls, cans of wet food, and airtight bins with scoops for dry food. All together.
Sammy just informed me that in the cat food bin, on top of 21 pounds of Friskies, 
are parts wrappers and soda cans.

The electrician was in today. I SO need to learn to wire.

When they took down the fixtures from both bathrooms, I sanded and repainted them. They sort of ignored them and put up single bulb things.

Me: What got done today?
Sammy: We have a new light fixture in the upstairs bathroom. Same as the downstairs
Me: Huh? Those fixtures aren’t the same. Did they put up new ones? I didn’t pick anything out!
Sammy: The single bulb deal
Me: Ew. Find the real ones.

 
Me: You got the glass shades and the metal rings that go on the shades for the white one?
Sammy: Yep
Me: Good man
Me: Now give them to the nice morons
Sammy: In a moment. They seem to be busy with something
Me: Probably picking out lime green shag carpet for the kitchen behind my back. Text me the ones they put up
Me: OMG, I just got it
Me: Give them those fixtures NOW
Sammy: OK
Sammy: The electrician left before I was here. You're gonna have to talk to Carlos to get the job clear and done, unfortunately.
Me: WHAT?
Sammy: The electrician is the one who installs the fixtures
Me: Um, Pumpkin, I know what an electrician is. I'm aware of that
Sammy: He's not here.
Me: Do we have some new floor stuff?
Me: ANYWHERE?
Me: Or was it just the "make my house uglier team" today?
Sammy: No flooring delivery, nope

I think the slab of water damaged wallpaper he tore off was... oh hell, 
I've been in sales for a decade and I can't spin this!
I think I'm about to learn wiring, aren't I?

LOL! Are you just replacing the fixture that is there now. Not moving it to a new location or spitting it to install an additional one anything like that? If you are just replacing it is soooo easy. After you do it, you'll wonder why you didn't before. Black to black, white to white and neutral to neutral or to the screw. Good luck. Shut off your power first. :-)

You can totally learn wiring! Really, it's not that hard. Well, I don't think it is, anyways. lol Like what Sandra said - replacing/rewiring a light fixture isn't too bad, just follow the instructions. Installing a new light fixture/running a wire, etc... might be a bit more complicated. Not that I'd know, though, lol. :)

Ladies, thank you for the pointers. I'm not afraid to tackle things, so you'll see how I did soon.

Seriously. Soon.

Yep but I don't think you'll have any problems with it at all!
