I Did It!

Hey there humble readers!

I have an announcement... I did it! I overcame my fear of the drill! If you recall from this post, I have been procrastinating on some home repairs because I was just a titch afraid of screwing things up. Well, yesterday I bit the bullet and started doing some basic stuff.

I bolted the bookcases to the wall. No more leaning towers of books! And I put up the curtains in the kitchen! Curtain rod, brackets, and tie-backs.

There's still a fair bit on my list, but I'm feeling good about what I've gotten done. And I only stripped one screw!

Small steps...


  1. Excellant Job! Drill today...nail gun tomorrow? :-)

  2. Yay for being Suzy Homemaker today..Good for you..I also wanted to let you know that I tagged you for an award on my blog..You totally deserve it!!

  3. Good for you! I'm TERRIFIED of drills, hammers and the like. I'll paint, as long as it's white on white, but that is IT! Mmmmm maybe I'll pick up the hammer or something. We'll see....

  4. YOU GO, GIRL! Way to conquer the drill! :)
