Didn’t get the curtains hung yesterday, but did get some writing and research done, and then discovered that I didn’t have the necessary curtain hooks. Drove the 1 mile to Target, and was surprised to find they didn’t have the kind of hooks I needed. Despite the fact that their blackout liner package showed that one needed exactly those kind of hooks to attach the liner to drapes. Go figure. So I then drove to Home Depot, where a helpful employee not only told me where to find the hooks, but ended up following me to show me where they were. Good thing: they were in these small cardboard bins with no cutouts on the front of them, so I never would have found them. By the time I got home, I was exhausted and could do nothing else. But there is always another day. And there was a time 7 years ago where I couldn’t say that.
