Murphy's Law....

What can go wrong, will go wrong: was the theme in the Wulf household last night! I wanted to post some super cute pictures I have from the weekend Lauren stayed with us, but for some reason they won't download on to my computer. Anyway, so Bryan and I decided we should hang up the new bathroom light fixtures - it looked relatively simple, and it should not have taken us very long. I was so wrong. Bryan took the old one off and started to install the new one, to find out it was a different size than the box, and a different shape. After trying about 30 different ways to make it work, Bryan got it attatched to the wall. but we couldn't get the fixture to fit, so we took it all apart again. Tried something else, didn't work, something else, still didn't work, one more thing - ok now it fits. Oh - but the screws won't go in the holes... of course they won't. Bryan quits, so I decide to try. Well, I'm still a little sore from when I took a major fall on the ice last week, not to mention I've been holding up a light fixture for the last 2 and a half hourse! so I innocently grabbed the towel bar for support - and it came flying off the wall, at pretty much the same time, the lightbulb on the counter rolled off and broke into a million pieces on the floor. Now as Bryan is trying to help me, Gavin decides to come into the bathroom and before we could stop him - he turned on the light - AS WE WERE WORKING WITH ELECTRICITY!!!!! I freaked out - but thank GOD no one was hurt! Gav felt pretty bad - he just wanted to help and he thought it was too dark in there! Anyway - Bryan finally got the stupid fixture on the wall - and after we turned on the light - we decided that it was not the right color to match all the other fixtures - so now we have to take it back to the store and start from step one. I think I might call my cousin, the electrician.

oh sad! I think even if it's not the right color, you should leave it up. It'll be funny to look at in a little while and remember the pain it took to get it there ;) miss & love you guys!

Well, look at it this way... Now you can bring in the towel bar to match the finish?
