Doing it yourself? Expect the unexpected 

Aside from being a journalist, photographer and an on-the-side wedding officiant, when time permits, sometimes I like to throw my hat in the ring toward being a handyman. 

Much to the likely dismay of my girlfriend, the opportunity to swing a hammer or power a drill to complete odd jobs around the house, in effort to save on the cost of hiring a professional, is something I take a little pride in.
