Some days I just seem to get nothing accomplished, no matter how busy I seem. On days like that I have to celebrate the little tasks. Otherwise, it’s just too sad. Yesterday’s big accomplishment was the removal of a Nerf dart from a really high up ledge in my house. It’s been there since Finn’s birthday (March!), when he got the Nerf gun.
Like most houses built in the last twenty years I have a two-story entry hall. Boy, do I hate these! Yes they look nice and spacious, but they are a pain to keep clean (how am I supposed to dust those knick-knacks that are 14 feet from the floor?) I am just dreading having to change the lights in the chandelier. I don’t have a ladder that tall. What am I supposed to do? Anyway–notice, if you will, the pointless little ledge toward the top of the picture. Do you see a small black thing sitting on it? That would be the Nerf dart that has been mocking me for many months.
I have been trying to come up with a plan to get that damn dart, but most involve jumping for it, followed by a hard tile-floor landing. Not worth it.
I finally thought of a solution. I got a really long extending paintbrush pole and screwed the Webster onto it. (The Webster is the cobweb removal device that I have to use on a regular basis lest Mister find out that there are actually spiders living in our house. Don’t laugh, he has major spider issues. OK, you can laugh. Especially if you see him find a spider. He completely flips out. I don’t want to say it’s hilarious, but . . . it is.)
Victory is mine!!!
