Almost as Handy as Someone Who Isn't At All Handy  
OK, so this was the big "move everything around" weekend - I needed to get new filing cabinets for the closet in my home office, so I could scoot the filing over and actually use the rest of the closet to store various and sundry electronic bits that would be so hard to get hold of at 2 in the morning that I couldn't possibly throw them away (and besides, it'd be such a waste to toss such useful stuff into a landfill) ****gasp****

Anyway.

That, of course, meant that I got to spend the better part of Saturday trying to plug up the new holes under the fence that our younger dog discovered he could make (I finally broke down and bought some hardware cloth and cable-tied it to the bottom of the fence to make a 2-foot wide "no-dig" zone. Seems to have worked OK so far, knock on wood.)

I then got to spend a few hours putting the lateral file together, puzzling over why the instructions kept using the word "attach" for things that had no screw holes or clips and just sort of slid together loosely.

So today, I decided to go ahead and put up curtain rods in the kids/guest bathroom. Should normally be about a 20 minute job, right?

Wrong.

First, someone had absconded with my spirit level, so I had to go get a new one.

Then, when I pegged everything up all nice and level, I put the rods up and they looked horrible because they didn't match the "level" of the window and ceiling.

So, I tried to move the brackets down and up and pretty much only succeeded in drilling lots of holes that suddenly met up with the old holes and didn't really manage to move the final position of said brackets in any appreciable way.

I finally got the brackets into something approximating a position level with the top of the window frame, and I find myself hoping that the valence ladyat has for it will cover up the extra holes on the top.

Otherwise, I get to take the brackets down, fill the holes, sand, re-paint, and then try again.

Which would end up making a total of 6 hours or so work for a 20-minute job.


And I still haven't finished moving the files into the new cabinet.

ROFLMAO! I just *LUUUVVVVEEE* "20 minute jobs." HEHEHEHEHE, chortle snort. (g) It is just nice to know that I'm not alone in the cycle of "complete secondary crisis job, missing tool, replace tool, complete job the first time, evaluate, complete job the second time, evaluate, hide results." This is so familiar! Have I ever told you the story about stripping wallpaper in the house in Birmingham? It's a saga, requiring hand and body motions, sound effects, and wailing and gnashing of teeth. It really is best presented with a full back-up chorus, and IT ISN'T OVER YET!!

I promise not to see any extra holes if I ever have to look under the curtains for any reason whatsoever.
