Thank you very much for your posting. I can relate. While I don't have a lot of people do things for me, I do lose track of starting and working things through from scratch or with my own sweat and toil. Tools and gadgets are fine, don't get me wrong.
Sometimes though I enjoy the Zen-like experience of smelling freshly mowed lawn or cutting into a pie I baked from scratch (even the crust!).
Strange as it may seem- hard work can be one of the best stress reducers around in my book :)
Happy rubbing and contemplating, JimmyT
