Do It Yourself

I firmly believe that DIY home projects should not be attempted by married or otherwise committed couples.

Such tasks can be as simple as assembling a particleboard bookcase, or as painstaking as papering bathroom walls. The trouble comes when both partners believe there is only one way to perform the job, their way. Everyone wants to be in charge, but no one wants to be told what to do.

Tempers flare, nerves fray, feelings get hurt, and possibly, tears shed. That’s just in the first five minutes.

Keep your romance alive. When there is a job to do, hire professionals.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

    1. My husband and I have a big DIY project that should begin this weekend. I’m determined to be silent and helpful. I may have to bite my tongue a lot, but I won’t make any suggestions on how we could be doing the work simpler.
