home work

I think I am now officially a homeowner. I replaced the ceiling fan in my bedroom. Now, don't get me wrong - this was not actually a very challenging endeavor. Except for the part where nothing fits like you expect, and the installation guide is full of dire warnings of death by (choose a terrible fate). But it was certainly the most advanced home repair we've done thus far. I think if the option of quitting in the middle had been available (without leaving dangling wires of doom in the middle of the ceiling) I would have quit. But, with no options except to soldier on, I chose to... soldier on. And, assuming the house doesn't burn down in the not-too-distant future due to my shoddy wiring job, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And it is a serious improvement over the old fan.

Wow, thats pretty cool. I look at our fans every day and think how nice it would be to change them. Our ceilings are 3.2m though. Are you scared of heights? - Andrew, Brisbane
