One of the NB worries (for me for sure) was how I would DO "IT" all alone? "IT" being anything previously delegated as something I couldn't do.... or didn't do.

I have celebrated the stories of others conquering this in so many ways and it is confidence building to hear the success stories.

So here is mine.

I bought a tv. We graduated from the standard def to HD. After the channels began to scramble ... well, it was time.

I hesitated (months, really! and I think fear was part of it. What if I buy the wrong thing? All the connections? cost and size and hertz and pixels, plasma vs. led, lcd, brands.

Well, I did it. I moved the heavy monster sd tv without breaking anything, myself included. I got all the components connected, even the wii which required a hidden menu change after connecting.

I feel so proud and capable. And independent.

Nice!! I've made a few "big" decisions on my own now and each one is a little easier than the last. I do find myself still thinking about how nice it was to have a partner to bounce those things off of, or who had the expertise to make a sound decision in a certain area.

But the Internet is awesome! My friends, their husbands, and a few new single friends I have made are all super helpful. And if I really can't do it, I hire out!!

Congrats on the new tv!!

Great job and I know that feeling of - can I do this? - and then, yes I can!!

For me it was buying a "pre-owned" car - never bought any car without a man's help - and negotiating a price that even my nephew who runs a car dealership said was a great deal!

You CAN do it!!
