I have to say, I'm rather proud of myself lately. I'm learning to take care of my own needs. No, not THOSE needs...well, ya those too *wink* lol. What I mean is the "honey do" stuff. The chores we relegate to the men in our lives. Honestly I had gotten used to having my own "I.T. Guy" on duty whenever I needed something electronic dealt with. DVD not working? Nag the X. Computer email not downloading? Nag the X. Well now that X is out of the picture I'm learning to do these things on my own.
I've managed to set up my wireless router, hook up my DVD players and the various video game systems the kids have, figure out automobile issues on my own - shoot I've even filled my very own toolbox with the essentials and dealt with minor home maintenance.
Now excuse me, I'm off to the hardware store for a wall patch kit - one more chore I'm certain I can manage on my own!
