Today is the big day: I began the Popcorn Elimination on All the Remaining Ceilings. ("Popcorn" is a euphemism for that ugly bumpy ceiling texture in most tract homes.) This is a huge task since I haven't yet removed it from the master bedroom and bathroom, the bedroom hallway, the entry, living room, and dining room, and the back hallway.
Today I began on the master bathroom. Small room=simple task, right? Wrong. The obstacles I ran into were the tub, the toilet, and the tiny linen closet. It was a challenge to get the ladder in or around all of them in order to reach the ceiling. The closet was the worst; at one point I thought I might be wedged in so tightly that I would need help to get out. My shoulders really took a beating.
