So, it's true... I am awesome

The reason for my extreme self importance... I installed our new door knob all by myself! To anyone that feels compelled to tell me that it is simple and a monkey could do it... don't. I am so very proud of myself. I am keenly aware that it doesn't take a Masters degree in hardware to install it... what I am proud of is that I didn't give up. There was a moment when I opened the package and thought 'Adam is really better suited to do this... I should just wait for him to get home'. But, I shoved that thought aside and made myself keep going. And I totally did it! Yeah, I rock.

Honestly, it is just nice to remind myself that I am not completely helpless when it comes to that type of stuff. I hope that nothing ever happens to Adam (we have a pack that he isn't allowed to die before me until he is 80... then all bets are off) but if God had other plans, it is nice to know that I could do it... That being said... I will probably let Adam do a good portion of the hardware type things, I only need to remind myself every so often... maybe once every 2 years?? Yeah, that seems like a good timeframe. Heck, it will take 2 years for me to stop congratulating myself on a job well done. Yeah, I am awesome.

I've had to install 2 in the last 2 months (yeah...life goes on) and each time I've got the lock reversed. No matter how many times I do it, it comes up wrong. Can't tell you how many times we've locked ourselves out of the house because of it. Had to put up a sign on the door with arrows showing which is locked and which is unlocked. So I, darlin, congratulate you!!
