Changing Roles For Women

Changing Roles For Women

As women become more and more independent, there have been changing roles for women.  I was raised by a busy single mom who hardly had time in the day to do everything on her “to do list”.  When I was probably 12 or so, my mom told me I would need to step up to the plate and help more around the house.  When you are independent women, you learn how to do the things that were strictly for men in the past.  I learned how to use a hammer, screw driver and level before I was a teenager.  It seemed I had a knack for fixing things up, so my mom let me be the “Maintenance Supervisor” in our home!  I loved putting up pictures, fixing a clog in the bathroom sink or putting up blinds in our bedroom.  When I finally moved out on my own at 18, I had a decent set of skills to help me in my living on my own.  As a house warming gift, my mom gave me a small toolkit that had the basics; hammer, tape measure, screw driver and level.  I used that tool kit for many years until I met my husband and married him and his bigger, better tool kit!

  1. I fix everything around here when it breaks, fixed broken dryers, fixed broken walls, fix everything when it breaks thats if it can be fixed.

  2. love them all but the level and the 8v Impact Drill would be my favorite tools, the combo together makes for some great wood working projects to get the angles right/level & tight when pre drilling your holes and using good wood screws.

  4. My favorite is the tape measure. This is always helpful when doing online shopping and seeing if measurements of item will fit.

  5. the power drill. dang it my guy and his pick up stole every tool in the house. the only way I’m ever going to get that picture hung is to win a drill.

  6. My favorite would be the screwdriver. My husband is in construction so all the screwdrivers in the house eventually get placed in his toolbox. When I need one, they are never there! This would be awesome, I don’t think he would take pink one !
