In order for me to turn on the fan and light in our dining room and guest room/soon to be nursery, I have to stand on other objects. At this point in the pregnancy, I'm not super big and my balance is still okay but I know that will change. For safety and convenience reasons, we decided we needed to fix this problem.

I went to Home Depot, per Trevor's instructions, and found extensions in the fan/lighting aisle. Who knew? Such a simple fix! Trevor just snapped on the extensions and viola! I no longer have to stand on chairs and other nearby furniture to turn on the light and fan!
