Here’s a confession: Somewhere along the line, I realized there were certain things that I didn’t like doing, because I didn’t do them well, so basically, I stopped doing them. A lousy attitude, I know, which is why I’m framing it as a confession. Home repair is at the top of the list (including house painting and hanging shelves.) I feel inept when using tools, thanks in part to my beloved father, who would’ve been the natural teacher, except that he avoided using them, too. Since buying my condo last year, I’ve tortured a screwdriver a few times to tighten the hinges on my kitchen cabinets. But other than that, I’m all thumbs. How about you?
