Thursday Treadmill Treats
I am one tough b***h
I come from a family of strong women, my Aunt Kay, my dad’s sister was the matriarch of the family at 5’0 she was little but everyone was afraid of her, she was the ultimate tough b***h, her daughter, my cousin Cindy inherited her ways and she can do anything a man can do and better, she is my hero!
My Aunt Nancy and my mother were also cut from the same cloth, both hard workers doing whatever needed to be done for their families. They both worked the night shift in a dinner for 20 years, my mom would come home after working all night, change her clothes and start working on our 100 year old farmhouse we lived on. I don’t remember a time when they weren’t working on that house.
We were poor and when your poor you learn to do things yourself because you can’t afford to hire people so you figure it out.
My mom worked right beside my dad, doing whatever he did. She dug holes, changed pipes under the house, built rooms, she wasn’t afraid to try anything.
I was fortunate enough to inherite all of these qualities from them. I am not afraid of power tools, I can change plumbing, fix things, put together and build things. I even put in a wood floor in my new home. There is nothing I won’t try to do…thank God for You tube you can learn just about anything in there!
I am self sufficient and I am not afraid of hard work because I’ve learned these things from the tough women role models in my life.
Today I will be leaning how to paver the back of my yard and put up a fence with my childhood friend who came down to help me. I will be shoveling, digging and swinging the hammer right beside him. This is all new to me but I am not afraid of hard work and I am excited to be able to say I did this… it is a great feeling of accomplishment when you do something yourself.
This whole buying a house on my own thing has been a trip but a good trip as I have learned all that I am capable of doing and it has made me tougher and I give thanks to the strong, tough b****h’s that came before me to show me the way and let me know that you can do anything even if your a women.
So today my friends know that you can do anything, do not put limits on yourself because you are a women, learn something new, become self sufficient, it’s amazing how you feel when you know you are a tough b***h!
