Fixing things

Yesterday was just what I needed. My stepfather and I spent the entire day doing projects around the house and managed to visit Lowes, Home Depot, and Menards in the process. There was something about working side by side with my stepfather, fixing things in my home, that healed my soul a little. With each screw we drilled, I felt my heart piece itself back together.

Sometimes we have to go through the tears and emotions before we get to the feeling-better-about-it part. Glad you're feeling better.
Please feel free to visit me!

Can I borrow him? My husband has promised to fix the ice maker in the fridge for months now. We even have the part! And there are other things that need to be done, but this husband (as apposed to the last one who could do ANYTHING) is not a handyman, at all!
