The Earnest household is shaking a little right now… so distraction is proving to be the best thing for the moment.
This e-card from Christy and Ava helps:
Whenever my mother comes into town, she comments on how dark our house is… and I was starting to agree. I feel like we had to turn on all the lights all the time just to get some decent lighting. Therefore, I decided to change the lights to a brighter, whiter light when I painted the office.
These lights are CFLs, so they give you the power of 60W while just using 13W. The prices aren’t bad either… a 4-pack for ~$8. The biggest different is that these are deemed “Bright White” instead of “Soft White,” so they have a 3500K warmth as opposed to 2700K. Chris thought it was a little less intense than the “Daylights” at 5000K and I agreed with him, since the space isn’t incredibly large.
And…. we loved it. And, by “we” I mean “me.” Chris says he likes the yellow lights more. But it makes me so happy to see white light… so I responded, “I hear you and I understand, but I am going to change ALL the lights now.. mmk?” Chris (shakes head): “Okay. Whatever you say.”
So I bought 3 more backs, the only difference being they were 900 lumens vs. 800 lumens as above. According to the packaging, I shouldn’t have to worry about these lights again until after we should be moved out of here.
And for a (blurry) side-by-side, while ignoring the in-progress blah bathroom:
I love the brighter, whiter lights and am so happy to have gotten rid of them all.
And, for the life lesson of the moment: this brush does not work for my hair:
