I like to think of myself as handy around the house, but I’m not. Not really. But I like to be able to hang my own curtains and blinds and pictures without having to ask Jeff to help me.
When we moved into this house, I put up curtains, but I couldn’t get the screws for the rods into the wall right. Even using the cordless drill, they just wouldn’t go in! Then my husband educated me on using a screw to do a pilot hole first. And let me tell you, it makes a world of difference! It went from “practically impossible” to “done in 30 seconds”. Now I really don’t have to make him help me! In fact, I hung up some more curtains this past week and I didn’t have to get him involved at all. It’s so nice to not have to add to his “To Do” List when I don’t have to!
