But they are done and out of here and now my work begins. Yesterday I purchased the new fan and light units and bought the paint (Cinchilla). Today I wrote the final check and moved my stuff into the room to start painting. I got up on the ladder to blue tape the windows and realized I only had two feet of the 1" tape available. So down off the ladder and yet another trip to Home Depot to give them more of my money. Fortunately I only needed 1 roll of blue tape and a pack of daylight mini spiral lightbulbs. Of course I have a feeling that Sunday, when Dan puts the ceiling fans in, that we will be back at the store for something.
This afternoon will be up and down the ladder while I get the top of the wall cut in. Why is it I have three kids who are afraid of heights (stares up at the ceiling whistling). OK, I don't like being up high either (see previous posts) but someone has to go up on the 9 foot ladder. Having very short arms doesn't help, though because it means I have to climb up and down the ladder a bazillion times to do the entire room. I wish I had one of the library ladders that are connected to rails and someone could just push me around the room as I needed to get to the next part. That would be cool and fun and I would probably have three kids wanting to help then.
