The Room-a-Month Challenge is not dead! (Are you still working on your rooms?) In fact, over the weekend I removed our old kitchen faucet and installed a new one. Me! (With some help from my reluctant assistant, Pete.)
Paralyzed with indecision, I put off calling the plumber for weeks -- mostly because I wanted to tackle the install myself, but was afraid to do it. I had visions of water flooding the kitchen -- nightmares, really. In the end, there was some water, and a few problems, but it all worked out in the end and we didn't even have to make a trip to the hardware store. They really do make these newer faucets simple to install.
Lately I've been trying to challenge myself to do things I haven't done before, and completing this task successfully has encouraged me. Who knows what I'll do next?
