So this arrived a couple days ago. An early (and gigantic!) Christmas present from Jason's parents.
It is a ladder. A proper, tall-enough ladder that will allow us to 1) paint some of the stupid-high walls and ceilings, 2) dust the ceiling fan blades, and 3) decorate the top of our Christmas trees without the use of a rake and Swiffer Duster extend-o handle thing. (That does not extend enough to dust the ceiling fan blades, ironically enough.) It is so fancy it comes with a whole DVD on how to use it.
This is officially the most grown-up gift we have ever received. Or maybe the most obvious of hints to get our shit together.
But seriously, painting! Can possibly realistically happen! Goodbye beige and various beige-y shades of brown! Say hello to...oh God, hopefully not something that looks like a different color at first but then mostly comes out beige once it's on the whole wall.
I should probably get the ladder out of the box and out of the foyer first, although y'all know our incredible track record on that sort of thing.
And with that, #LADDERWATCH has officially commenced! Peace and blessings to your family during this special time.
