So my office buddy saw the title of this blog and asked about it. And I realize I haven't ever explained it, even to my co-bloggers. So here is the story.
For some reason I end up doing most of the minor household repairs. For example, last weekend I took the back off the washing machine to see if the pump was cracked. (It wasn't; the pipe was blocked. I fixed it with Drano, which means all the work taking off the back was totally pointless.) Anyway a couple of years ago I fixed the track for a sliding closet door in our old house. My husband acted impressed. I revved my Makita and quipped, "Watch out for Mama with the power drill!"
So maybe there's some subtext there about gender roles and stuff. Whatever. I like the power drill.
