After another light bulb burned out in the computer room, we bought some new bulbs.

Somehow it's been over a week and the new bulbs were still in the utility room and not in the ceiling fan fixture.

I "walked" the step ladder from the utility room to the computer room, got one bulb out of the  container of four and got on the bottom step of the ladder. Luckily it has an arched, angled handle to hold on to.

Sometimes a woman just has to do what she has to do.

A husband will get around to the task his wife asked him to do. She doesn't have to remind him every six months.


  1. I do hear this story a lot. I have the opposite problem. I can't suggest anything or my Hubby gets up and does it immediately. I'm very spoiled and I know it. For example: Last Sunday I said we probably should touch up the pain on the white baseboards over the winter. Monday evening after work he went and bought paint and he has spent the last two evenings painting baseboards. This was after working 12 hour days! I have to be careful because he does NOT like to put things off. :-)

    1. Very good advice. I tried standing on the step for a minute or two, testing the atmosphere! It did not produce any dizziness.
