New Guest Craftsman on "This Old House"...

Believe it or not, I changed out a DOORBELL this morning. Including the wiring.
Yes, that would be.... ME. With NO HELP.

Miss Do-It-Herself (NOT).

Said doorbell was broken.... I realized Hubster was moving about as quickly as a 3 toed SLOTH to get it replaced, so I went to Home Depot and said "how tough is this" and lo-and-behold, it WASN'T.

I feel so.... accomplished. :-)

Someone call CNN.

calling CNN right now.
I am right there with you...I gave up on waiting for the husband to do such things...I keep telling him, that he can be replaced by a woman. ;) (The ol' sister/wife again)

Wow! I'm really proud of you. I don't think I could do it. Or maybe I could. If I just read the directions.

Are you serious! Is there anything you can't do? WOW!

Girl, I may need to have you send me the step-by-step directions for that one. My back doorbell has been broken since I moved in, almost 15 years ago!! I believe you've inspired me to attempt to finally fix it on my own!

ChiTown girl - seriously - if I can do this, YOU CAN DO. I bought the cheapest doorbell they had (I think it was $3.50) - the kind that is "MADE IN TAIWAN" and I followed the instructions. You will need a screwdriver and that is IT.

Eezee Peezee..... trust me.

Is there ANY thing that you can't do? Any thing at all?

I know I already said that the other day, but I seriously can NOT get over that. WOW
