So true. I was so angry for years because I wanted the support of that other person in the house. I now just let it go and find my way of organizing and completing.

Changing my life one day at a time from the inside out. Remembering the basics, to set goals, plan,implement, then revise. The journey will be hard and easy but remember to HAVE FUN!!!

I was doing it myself when I was married too, but it was because my DH couldn't be bothered. Now I prefer to hire it out when I can emoticon

Technically I am not a single female doing renovations. But I do it all by myself because my husband cannot do it. I have always said If you want it done do it yourself and if it does not please you you have no one to blame but yourself.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 4th of July! Leaving early to go south to a parade and picnic and get in some swimming and coming back early evening to guard my house and my neighbor's house. Fireworks are legal here and too many idiots setting them off without a care in the world for where they land and what might start on fire. I'll have the TV and radio on loud for the dogs and the hose at the ready for the yard and structures. Smells like sulfur outside already and can hear a siren...wonder if it's a firework accident or car accident or fire?? It's almost 3 a.m. so the bars closed an hour ago. Scary time in the middle of the week!

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

The deck is one of the things that I know I will have to replace when I move back home. I am hoping by that time (in 2 years) I will be able to pay someone to rebuild it. I don't mind taking it apart myself but my handy woman skills are not up to a professional level.

hi
long time since I've checked in here. I'm impressed with the handywoman work! I had my deck replaced in May and I did a lot of the demolition but not the building.
Heading out for a walk to get in my 10,000 steps a day.

Changing my bathroom taps was pretty easy & rewarding. They are nicer looking, cleaner & have not needed any maintenance so far. I changed the sink too. I wish I had got a nicer sink; mine is kind of plain. I also changed to the fiberglass lines that supply the faucet.
I put in a low flow toilet, but I absolutely hate that thing. It plugs if you look at it. In fact, it is clogged right now! I would love to take a sledge hammer to that thing but, the neighbours probably would not appreciate me using the backyard for a potty. I definitely think changing the faucet is a good DIY job.

Hey, my kitchen tap has started leaking. I thought those single handle ones don't have washers so they aren't supposed to leak. That means that I will have repaired every single faucet in this darn house. I'm tired today! (When I'm done.)

I did finally get a job, but here in Ohio!! I haven't worked for 9 months since the office closed. I start a temp job tomorrow, Christmas Eve. What a great Christmas present for me and it comes just in time as my unemployment will be running out after next week. The job is temp to possible hire and I will be verifying dependent eligibility for insurance plans. I will only be working 1-5 tomorrow and Weds and then I have to find out what I will be doing the rest of the week. After the training, which I am assuming is only that week, I will be on the phones 40 hrs per week. The contract is for 6 months and it pays decent. I am only hoping that this is a interim job, because I am waiting to hear from the University about a job I applied for. I don't know what they all have to do, but I was told that it is a process and could take a long time. It has been since Oct and still no answer and I've called with no response. The job still shows that it is open, so I have to wait. If I don't get it, I hope this one will turn into a permanent position.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Yes, I used to live in SE Michigan. I had a opportunity to relocate to my company site in France for a new position, which is the job I had been trying to get for the last few years. And since it is a French company to advance I really need that visibility in the "home" country.

It has been so interesting to read about some of your adventures in France. I have always lived in the same province in Canada; tho' I love travelling, I think it takes courage to live in a new place.

I'm getting used to the enforced freedom on Sundays. Since everything is closed I am freed for the self-imposed need to run around completing errands. Instead I can sleep in, clean the house, go for my runs, cook and just rest. There is nowhere I HAVE to go, nothing I HAVE to do. This is nice; we really miss out on this type of freedom in the US.
