So yesterday, we started painting our Great Room, aka, Dining Room and Living Room.  Which is one Great Big Open Area along with our kitchen.  I'd show you a picture but everything is one Great Big Mess, what with furniture moved to the center of the room and all sorts of flotsam and jetsam covering every flat surface.

TheManTheMyth was getting ready to paint the ceiling, which I wanted painted a very, very, VERY pale blue, which HE was not in agreement with and, in fact, told me to step away from HGTV before someone gets hurt, when he started to remove our ceiling fan so he could paint the ceiling Not Very, Very, VERY pale blue.  Dammit.

I was in another room when I heard a crash and a few choice swear words coming from the Living Room.

This is what my beautiful Minka Aire ceiling fan looked like Before:

This is what it looked like After:
What's wrong with this picture?

What's worse is that I went on Minka Aire's website to see if I could just buy a replacement blade since that's all that actually broke and the answer was No.

Ironically, Thing 1 has the exact same fan in his room and when it was being installed, it was dropped and the only thing that broke was, you guessed it, one blade.  Yet we had to order an entire new fan.

So now, I have to order yet ANOTHER fan and I wish this was an April Fool's joke but, sadly, it's not.
