I am the fixer upper of the house. And sometimes I like to think of myself as MacGyver. I am a pretty firm believer that everything can be fixed! And I don't mind getting my hands dirty. Picture this: my son was about 2 months old, my daughter was 2 years old and I wanted a screen door. My poor husband is not that handy, so asking him was out of the question. I went to the store and picked out a wooden screen door, the door hinge, the door handles, and the all the parts I needed. I was determined this was going to get done and I was not waiting for my dad or my father-in-law to help. So, I strapped my son to my chest in a carrier and had my daughter with me on the porch and by george, I put that door up. And it was fabulous! I love fresh air! I thought about this because yesterday it was gorgeous out and I had all the windows open along with my wonderful screen door... that has had to be MacGyver'ed a good many times because the outdoor cats keep ripping the screens.
Have you ever accomplished a "manly job" that you are eternally proud of?
