I Do It All
I am the forewoman. I troubleshoot, coordinate and placate. I am the middle woman, the peace maker, the bringer of cold beverages and fresh baked bribes. I write checks, read contracts, negotiate deals and run missions of mercy to Home Depot, Papa John's, and Major Market. I decide where boulders should go, and how high walls should be. I roast and serve turkey hot dogs for 3 kids, and six guys operating a cement pump. I sniff for septic leaks, change diapers, change light bulbs, and change minds. I keep a ready supply of popsicles, bandages, water, and bright ideas. Excuse me for a moment...either all this power has gone to my head, or I spent too much time out under the sun!
