Can you share more about your personal victories in your craft room?

IT IS JUST THINGS THAT ENCOURAGE MY INDEPENDENCE, BY FINDING CREATIVE WAYS 2 ACCOMPLISH A SIMPLE, “NORMAL” TASK:–THE THINGS I DO ARE SIMPLE TASKS 4 OTHER PEOPLE, BUT I MAY FIND UNIQUE & CREATIVE WAYS 2 ACCOMPLISH IT ONE-HANDED. SOMEEXAMPLES:
1. OPENING A CD CASE & PUTTING IN THE CD
2. ACCESSING & PUTTING IN THUMBDRIVES.,
3. HOW I SET UP THINGS SO I CAN BURN CDS ALONE
4. OPENING WRAPPERS 2 GET AT THINGS (SOME THINGS ARE SEALED, OTHERS TIE, & THEY ALL ARE DIFFERENT KINDS OF PAPER)
5. HOW I GET ZIPLOCS, POST-IT NOTES, & PENS OUT ON MY OWN, THEN HOW I OPEN THE ZIPLOC, PUT STUFF IN IT, & WRITE ON THE POST-IT THE THINGS I NEED MY CAREGIVER TO DO WITH WHAT IS IN THE ZIPLOC…
6. HOW I MOVE THINGS & CLEAN…
7. WHEN BLANK PAPER ACCIDENTALLY COMES OUT OF MY PRINTER, I CAN PUT IT BACK IN & PRINT ON IT.
8. HOW I PICK UP SLIPPERY FLAT, HEAVY, &/OR ROUND OBJECTS W/MY GRIPPER
9. HOW I MOVE CHAIRS, REACH THINGS, ETC.
RECENTLY, I WAS GOING THROUGH THE DOUBLES OF MY PICTURES, DECIDING WHAT TO THROW AWAY, & WHAT TO SCRAPBOOK. I ACCIDENTALLY THREW AWAY A PICTURE I HAD WANTED. THERE WERE A LOT OF PICTURES TO GO THROUGH, BUTT THHE TRASH HAD JUST BEEN EMPTIED, SO IT WAS JUST PICTURES. (KEEP IN MIND THAT A 2 POUND WEIGHT IS HEAVY FOR ME!) I WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE LID & LOOK. AFTER A WHILE, I HAD 2 GIVE IN & HAVE HELP FINDING THE PICTURE, BUT AFTERWARDS, SOMEHOW I PICKED UP THE HEAVY TRASH CAN LID W/MY GRABBER, PUT THE LID ON CORRECTLY, & MOVED THE TRASH CAN BACK WHERE IT BELONGED.
