I couldn't find the wheel I wanted, so I took a class at the local co-op and built it myself. I admire you guys who can do it from the written word; I would have been lost without the hands on...

Nope, I understood you just fine. I have the 70mm version and have no complaints about how it performs.

It was a bike shop with an attitude like yours (silly, stupid female customer doesn't know what she's asking for) that drove me to learn how to wrench.

Yep. I've become resigned upgrading any new bike to SRAM if it's not already equipped with such.

I looked at that rack and was very tempted, but didn't want to risk my membership. I ended up with a folding bike (Tern Link D8) that fits in the back storage area. It's an okay compromise, but I...

Don't be discouraged. Wheel building may seem simple in theory, but missing one step can mess it up. Ask your mechanic if you can watch him rebuild it, or if there's a class the shop offers. Or...

Ouch. Good luck and keep plugging away at it. My dressage instructor had both hips replaced a few years ago; it was a long recovery but he's back in the saddle again and happy to be pain free.
