Great article, fun to read, inspires me to push my husband aside so I can pitch in, have a turn of the screw driver or a hit of the hammer.
You see, the man of our household is an action hero kind of guy who likes to fix things vigorously and quickly, then step aside to "wow" his family with his handiwork.
Unlike Mike who shares his genius and know-how, our fixer hero often asks us to step aside so SPEED is maintained. Prepping is a pain in his pocket, likewise questions that slow him down.
Still, it's difficult for me NOT to ask questions as I inherited an insatiable appetite for learning how to do things from my mother; processes fascinate us both. Mom was the fixer in my life growing up - a walking encyclopedia and how-to woman who could tackle or coach any project. Pity the poor fixers that she hired later in life to patch, paint, prune, or repair - nothing got past her. She knew the steps to do the job right, the first time.
My tip to women who also aspire to become fixers but might have a man of speed at home: Soar under the radar like a stealth fighter 'til you locate your target. Act quickly with resolve. You too can be a fixer hero and catch those broken villains.
