It would be so nice to be handy
When I was in High School, they were still teaching home economics. Didn't take it, though. (I learned to type and sang in the chorus instead).
But boy would it ever be nice to be able to do things!
Hang stuff, for example, or figure out draperies, or have knife skills.
Not only did I not learn these things, but I learned other things which became a career and sucked up the spare time I could have spent learning some home-oreiented skills.
Decorating just seems to me like something I'm supposed to be able to do, yet I can't. Is that like a guy who can't play baseball? Is there such a guy?
There's a monetary cost as well as a personal cost to all this.
I've been selling some things due to downsizing.
Here's a table that's finally got some interest on Craigslist because it's practically free. It has a small ding from moving that someone with a tiny bit of skill and a tool and a place to make sawdusty could fix.
Once fixed, it will easily sell for three times what I'm getting for it
My computer skills with computers and databases have given me a living, but a not a home life.
