Ha ha. I know - I've had delusions of me & dh building beds and media centers ('c'mon dh. It's so easy, we can totally do it, she said so!') yet I think our patience at the moment for doing it with young kids around just can't take it. And I recall times when we tried to fix other things together .
I do find great small tips I can use there, though.
LOL. This sounds like dh and me. He has been super handy in the past, so I get really excited about projects like this, only to realize halfway through that we are both short on patience and time. And then it sits undone which frustrates me bcs I feel like a nag, and...well, sometimes it;s just better to fork over the money and avoid the marital stress :)
