I think small changes, like light fixtures, can make a big difference. So I went to home depot and bought new fixtures for only $50 each and installed them myself.  It was really a challenge to hold up the mounting base while I connected the wires to the junction box so I came up with a system that worked.  I tied the twine around my wrists and wrapped the loose string so there was very little slack.  I then tied the other ends of the twine to the spokes on the mounting base so I was able to let the base hang from my wrists while my hands were free to connect the wires.
