impossibilities challenge accepted take 2

Not to stress you all out, but the “Imagine the Impossibilities” deadline is looming large. 
You tell me:  Is it a bad thing that I’m using my next door neighbor’s daughter’s Girl Scout cookie order as bait to encourage him to finally find — and lend me — his giant ladder?

The very giant ladder I need to paint that vaulted ceiling in my bedroom?

And is it a bad thing that my family room still looks like this?

I’ve been pounding the keyboard trying to get word out about this (which, by the way, there is still plenty of time to get in on) …
And haven’t had the time, energy or motivation to pack up this …

      I decided to finish the bedroom instead. It’s what I’m working on anyways, so I’m puttin’ a Impossibilities button on my sidebar now! OK, have to hurry up and go recover a chair and paint some wall art!

    You get going girl. Leave those Christmas decorations up if it means more time to get at that bedroom ceiling. I’m counting on you crossing that off your list so you can get on with the other things up your sleeve.

    As for the bartering for a ladder with girlscout cookies….. hmmmm….
