Half of lights on same breaker are not working!!!

I had the bright idea to relocate a light switch in our garage. The task was to relocate it about 3 feet closer to the entrance. Not a problem...I thought!!! Turned the breaker off that powered that light switch (same breaker also powered interior dining room lights). Added Romex wiring to extend the length from the old location. Drilled hole in wall for new location, routed Romex to new location and tied up everything. Turned on breaker and the light switch worked fine. However, I noticed that the lights inside my house on the same breaker are not working...what gives? Checked all breakers and all are on.

Welcome to the forums!

I suspect you accidentally disconnected a wire in the original switch box. Check in there and if you can find the wire.
