And on the 77th day of sitting in the living room of darkness, Allison rode her bike to the store, bought a lightbulb, screwed it in and said, “Let there be light!” And there was light and it was good!
The same day, Isaiah said, “Let us have a door through which we can passeth” as the key to the lock had not been found since the chicken incident. So he walked over to the good carpenters working on the house next door who busted out the old lock and installed a new one. The door hath opened and it is very good!
So yeah, big things are happening around here. I’m as confused as you are at why we put up with living room darkness for so long. (Nope, wasn’t kidding about the 77 days.) Our landlord said she’d get the lightbulb for us and in my mind it seemed hard to track down one of those big fluorescent tube lights so we just kinda waited. I think you can adjust to almost anything. Well, it turns out they’re for sale at the supermarket we frequent multiple times a week. Who knew?
And now that our front door finally opens (locked doors here can’t be opened even from the inside without a key) we can get a better breeze flowing and our guests don’t have to enter the house through our bedroom! Things are looking up.
What home improvement projects have you guys been tackling? Any other super simple why-didn’t-I-do-this-earlier experiences?
