I have a few tools in my arsenal. I have a hammer, a tape measure, and a flat head screwdriver. I can never find them when I need them because I have no idea where I left them.
When I received my new vacuum cleaner and I could not find the proper tool to put it together I decided to do something about it so I would be prepared next time.
The challenge... Nice new vacuum
...No way to put it together:-(
So off I went to Amazon, (I get free shipping:-)
First I need a place to put my tools so I can always find them, a tool box.
Screwdrivers. I needed the Philips head.
I decided to get a few other things to fill my tool box. Things I have needed over the last 2 years and because I did not have them I either did not start the job or I made do without them.
A Utility Knife. I have been using my steak knives to cut things other then steak so this was needed and less then $5.00.
A flash light because I don't have one. The other night during a severe thunder storm the lights were flickering on and off. When the lights did go out I tried to use my cell phone but that was like holding up a match. I did manage to light some candles.
electric cordless screwdriver. I had wished I had one of these several times and because I did not a few jobs were not done...
If you, like me, get overwhelmed with the responsibilities of life, I find if you take a deep breath and focus on one job at a time it becomes a bit easier. I think if we push through we can surprise ourselves with the work we can get done on jobs both large and small
Hang in there guys. We can do this.
