Did you notice the part where I keep saying “almost” and “most of” instead of “all of”? Yeah, I noticed too.
So far there has been one light we have not yet replaced. It is on a very high ceiling that our 6 foot ladder could not come close to reaching. We had planned on replacing this light when we rented the ladder to replace the Ugliest Fan Ever that resides in our living room. Recently, however, we aquired some very tall ladders from my parents. Ladders that will reach the spot where this light is (although it will not reach the spot where the Ugliest Fan Ever is).
Over the weekend on one of our 5,239 trips to Lowes we decided to just go ahead and grab that final light to put up. Only they didn’t have any. Not only did they not have any but the display was marked with a big clearance sticker at $2.97 for the light whick leads me to believe they will not be getting any more.
I know, I know. Not a big deal right? I’m bound to be able to find this light somewhere else, like the Internet. Except the Internet does not seem to have this light either. I’ve found it in one place on ebay, and Lowes online doesn’t have it anywhere. Seriously. I even checked Kentucky in case I could order it there and make Nate’s brother pick it up and mail it to us. (Because yes, that seemed like a reasonable idea and no, I’m not crazy, why do you ask?) But they don’t have it either.
So tonight’s plan was to go to a local light shop that carries that brand and if that failed I’d be calling Lowes and begging for them to let me buy their display light because it seriously might drive me nuts to know that we have that ONE STUPID LIGHT that does not match and NEVER WILL and I do NOT want to have to replace EVERY SINGLE LIGHT AGAIN, but don’t think that thought hasn’t crossed my mind either.
Long story short, I immediately dragged Nate out to Lowes where we paid $3.18 for the final light.
