Ok, my biggest personal accomplishment lately was assembling Oliver's bouncer. Normally I don't take on projects involving tools, because "I'm not good at that stuff." But I've been trying to break out of that type of thinking - the Oh, I can't do X because I'm not that type of person. So while it took me longer than it would have taken DH, I did actually get it assembled. Go me! I don't know why I have this thing against home improvement or fixing stuff. Like changing a tire or hanging a picture. I'm always afraid that I'll do it wrong. Maybe because my dad always did that stuff growing up so I just naturally expect DH to take that role.
Also had some really good connecting time with DH this weekend. Don't want to get too personal, but it was really good for us on a lot of levels. We got to touch on some subjects both of us had been avoided for a while, and managed to have a really good Father's Day.
