A glimpse into the world of the handicapable.

I’m Thankful

Today Chris’ key broke in the key hole (cue gasp).

So, being the independent, stubborn person I am…I decided to venture to Home Depot and get a new deadbolt.  I located the appropriate hardware and made my happy way home. I pushed poor Chris to the side, determined to install it myself.  I had done it a few times before so I wasn’t worried…then…

I realized that there are so many factors that go into replacing a deadbolt. A five minute project became two hours and…I needed help.  Pride cometh before the fall, right?

Pride…check!
Fall…check!

Sigh

Chris came in to save the day. One of the things I love about my husband is that he let’s me do my thing.  He allows me to try without interfering. And he let’s me fail. This isn’t a bad thing. That’s the only way I learn, sadly. Stubborn, remember?

His sweet and gentle demeanor allowed for me to safely swallow the pride I had (notice the past tense?) and together we put that sucker together.

Click…

It’s okay to ask for help. Especially when it’s your significant other. Lesson learned…
