Sometimes, when you step outside of your comfort zone and self imposed limits, you surprise yourself with the things you didn't know that you could do and that's exactly what I did over the weekend.

Ever since becoming single and no longer having my daddy to call on, I've had to learn to do a lot of things for myself, like changing out the lever on my toilet or fixing the latch on my storm door. Let's just say I've watched a lot of instructional YouTube videos over the last year and a half.

I know it sounds silly, but I didn’t know I could fix a toilet. I’m learning all kinds of fun things about what I am capable of doing now. It turns out that I'm not alone and that being independent is awesome. In fact, my friend Stephanie, a single friend of mine from Chicago just fixed her own garbage disposal! My friend Ruth recently learned how to replace the belt on a riding lawn mower. You geaux girls!

I don’t care if I get anything else done today, because I am a bad a$$! I just fixed the dang toilet!!! Watch out screen door, you’re next!
