I spend a lot of time bitching about Molly, A LOT of time. I’d like to just take a minute to remind myself about some of the awesome things about her. I truly love working on her, seriously I love it. I’ve never taken on such a big and completely foreign to me project and I love it. I love that it is such a piece of shit and that I continue to make it better. I love that I have to think of things and research and then research some more. I have to make decisions with confidence and authority and with enough knowledge to back them up that I can argue with my brother about it. That is no small feat. He is really tough, really smart and has soooooo much more experience than me.
And that brings me to some other things about working on the trailer that are super awesome. My brother Andy. He lets me keep Molly at his property, use his shop and tools and is always helpful with advice or know how. It’s been really cool having his help on this ridiculously big project.
And there is no way that I would even get a single thing done on the trailer if it weren’t for my mom, Ruth. She’s watched the kids for me on short (and sometimes zero) notice without complaint. The boys have adored all the extra Grandma time too so I know they would say thank you as well.
And of course Phil, for never telling me no, even when he probably should have. For being the best editor and not letting me alienate every person we know with all the F bombs and super inappropriate jokes I want to make(yes this is toned down). And for reminding me that I can do this. I promise I’ll totally have her ready for next summer. Swear. I think. Well mostly sort of readyish.
Sorry if this reads like a terrible Oscar speech I promise I will go back to my ranting, angry, swear-filled trailer posts next time. Fuckity bye.
