To change me.
To make me a better person.
You laugh but it is true.
Winter is killing me inside.
Eating my soul.
I was googling “happy lamps” and pricing homes in the Riviera.
By the way, I can’t even afford a plane ticket to the Riviera.
By the way, I don’t even know where the Riviera IS.
I will do anything it takes to make my home and my life look a little brighter especially from December to April.
I live in Chicago.
So really June.
But as you all know, I am skeptical.
I didn’t really think a bulb could change my life as it pertains to household illumination.
I am a secret Debbie Downer.
Here, you be the judge.
These pictures were taken around dusk on a mid January day.
Which is 4 o clock ’round these parts.
Or 3:30 if it is cloudy.
I should also state that I did not edit any of these pictures in Picasa or Pic Monkey.
As to sway you.
And make YOU less Debbie Downer.
I received four bulbs.
So I chose to do two lamps in my living room.
And two lamps in my family room.
Normal people would have chosen to do FOUR lamps in ONE room.
I wanted to spread the love to the entire downstairs.
DID I TELL YOU HOW CRAPPY WINTER IS HERE????
OK so skeptical me was all, “there is no way this is gonna make a difference”.
I even said that to the hubs.
Then he left to take our youngest to a birthday party and I am pretty sure my last words to him were, ” see you in two hours when the house looks EXACTLY THE SAME AS WHEN YOU LEFT.”
I was a little wrong.
OK I was a lot wrong.
Who knew a light bulb could make a difference.
I don’t know if you can tell from my horrible pictures….I don’t do well with night pictures.
But there is a HUGE difference.
I noticed right away and said out loud,” OMG. I can see the dust on my floor!”
OMG. I CAN SEE THE DUST ON MY FLOOR.
Thanks a lot.
It made a difference in this WinterStinksAndIAmTakingAllOfYouDownWithMe mentality.
So do YOU want to make a difference in YOUR family room?
No one needs to see THAT much in the bathroom.
