Five Things...

people don't know about me--

Well, that depends. If you are a blog buddy, you don't know this.

1. I have my nose pierced.

2. I have worked in construction. Two of the most memorable times:
leveling a house by shimming one pier at a time, mixing and pouring concrete in a crawlspace;
taking a hit right in the face by a piece of sheet metal--my choice were to jump off an 8 ft ladder onto concrete or drop a $400 drill!

3. My mother bear scares me--one time while I was pregnant, I saw a figure walk into my back yard holding something in his hand. I had my under 5 girls and their two under 5 cousins in the house. I ran to the back door and yelled at him to get out of here! before he turned around and revealed that he was a meter reader. Momma Bear has come out a few times since then--no negotiating with her!

4. I would love to parachute out of an airplane.

5. I would have made a GREAT detective!

Thanks for playing along. I think the Momma Bear is actually Poppa Bear in me, and I think you find that in lots of folks. Why didn't you ever pursue being a detective? And is parachuting one of your resolutions for the coming year?

having spent a few months owner building, with many more months to go, I have so much more respect for you

er,not that I didn't respect you before ;-)

I helped Mr. P when he was abruptly let go from a job. This was his opportunity to run his own business, so we got out there and did any job available for a while.

Since then, I have filled in as needed with his HVAC install jobs. Nothing like splicing duct and running it thru attics.

That's right chicks with power tools rule!
