Standing on my own two feet

Calling Uncle Bob? Have you ever faced a difficult situation when you had to choose between sorting it out yourself, or asking someone else for an easy fix? What did you choose — and would you make the same choice today?

Usually I don’t call on anyone, unless I have to. I find that if it’s something I can do or even figure out for myself, then I will do it, I am one of those horrible people that finds that no one does the job as well as I can do it myself………I know it’s a burden, but hey what can I do?

If it’s something that I really cannot do physically or technically I will call the expert, aka Moth (Hubby) or an Electrician, Plumber etc. There are some things I just cannot face along…………Great Big ugly Huntsmen Spiders for instance….eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww!

But when it comes to doing the laundry, vacuuming, dusting, putting flowers in a vase, creating agendas, monthly reports, marketing, creating website pages, graphics, artwork, food shopping, cooking, talking family happy snaps, furniture placement, garden design, oh should I continue??????? Well lets face it I just like to make sure things get done, and done properly. There are things I leave to Moth (mainly because I just can’t be bothered or they frustrate me endlessly or it gives him more pleasure than me) Christmas Decorations, Computers, rubbish, renovations (I design he makes).

However, you put the shoe on the other foot? Oh I hate it when people ask me for favors, so often it comes back to bite me in the butt; especially at work. It gets to the point you are loath to do anyone a favor. Sure some things are simple and you happily do them without question; but it’s those big favors, especially trying to help someone cover something up…………..that never ends well.

So please unless it’s something small don’t ask me to do it for you, and If I can do it myself, if you offer help, I’ll usually say thanks but No I can do it,  so please take it personally.
