This blog has taken me a really long time to write. I can honestly say that I have spent more time thinking about it and working on it than I have in any other writing assignment I have ever had. The reason for this is that I had some really inspiring women give me their stories. I want to do their stories justice and I want to convey how awesome they are and I started over about 10 times on this blog because I wanted to make sure I was doing just that.
I grew up with a father that was and still is in the oilfield. He was gone all the time. His schedule for as long as I could remember was 8 and 4. That’s 8 days and nights away from home and 4 days home. In theory it doesn’t sound that bad, but 2 of the four days were spent traveling either to or from work.
