Hello My name is Kristen, and I'm NOT an Alcoholic!

however I AM the owner of a house with an endless list of DIY projects.
My husband has no interest, patience,or desire to do any of these projects. One time he decided he would tackle the drip.. drip.. drip..of our shower faucet. Five hours and THREE trips to Home Depot later, he told me to call the plumber! When I get out my tools he just rolls his eyes and lets me go to it! Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don't. But one thing I can always count on is that whatever I do it takes me 108 times longer to do than it should! No kidding, last week I mounted a new toilet paper and towel holder and it took me 2 hours. Yeesh.
So, there you have it. My current project is to remove our grundgey glass shower doors then mount an arc shower rod. Thanks in advance for all the useful tips I know I'll get from this forum.
