Sojo, good for you! Isn't it a wonderful feeling knowing that you can do that stuff!?
We're like you... my DH is NOT handy, but I've had a lot of experience with building and carpentry. He's catching up to me, though. He's learned how to do plumbing, which I haven't bothered to master.
Sojo's next project to tackle: taking apart the engine in their car and putting it back together again!
