Somedays I miss having a man around the house

Today would be one of those days. . . I am trying to install blinds in my bedroom.  It is NOT going well. At this point, not only have I not succeeded in the installation process, but I have also managed to break a drill bit AND done something that has resulted in the drill NOT wanting to disgorge the broken bit.

For the record, I am a pretty handy girl.  I was raised by a single mother who did it all.  My late father's toolbox did not sit idle when something needed to be done around the house.  She put up shelves, she repaired doors and windows, she cut down the swing (hold it, that's another post -- about not fighting over the tree swing and waking up a woman who has worked 21 straight night shifts at the local jail).  Anyway, you get the picture.  She was a great example of 'do-it-herself' confidence.

So, I do it myself . . . have been for 5 years now.  But it does get old . . .
