Well long story short she ended up passing away on 11/26 so that week I spent with my dad while helping get ready for the Funeral on 12/1. I spent some time last night with my dad's help setting up my mini-trees, reindeer and getting all the stuff stored in the garage attic down. My goal is to have it operational in the next week or so. My mom loved Christmas decorations and would have my dad drive by anytime they were out in the evenings. All my new controllers have been tested and setup (ESP's programmed).
    Sorry for your loss. It will be an emotional season for you, just remember the things she enjoyed!

    Thanks. Remembering the things she enjoyed is why I got the lights put up and running Saturday night. I told my daughter it was kind of amazing. I converted everything to ESP-01 communication and replaced several SSR's with TR-24's on my arches, added Dirknerkle's WiFi adapters to several other SSR's. Even with all those new things everything worked with very little hassle. Normally I am all stressed out the week of Thanksgiving trying to get everything put up and running for the Friday evening after Thanksgiving. Without that added pressure it was actually enjoyable putting them up and getting things working this year.
