Shera, my lovely personal organizer, came by today and look what we did!
And when I say "we", I mean she did all the work to hang the shelf and I watched.
I also offered helpful comments like, "Hey, that's a cool electric thingee you got there. It puts those screws right into those studs like butter!" and "Wow! Stud finder? It would probably go berserk if my DH came home right now."
After hanging the shelf, I showed her all the progress I'd made the past two weeks since her last visit. She said lots of really nice encouraging things to me—and even clapped at appropriate intervals.
I like her very much.
