I have many jobs. But all of them can fall under one general description: Bossy Wench.
My primary job is Sr. Configuration Management Analyst. (That’s fancy talk for bossy wench!) Seriously, configuration management is about getting really smart people to understand that they can’t do whatever they want. They have to follow a process that helps them to document what they did and what decisions were made long the way. So quick example, look at your cell phone. My job is to help the engineer who designed that phone document everything about how it was designed, built and packaged. That way they can do it again, and again, and again with confidence that they will get the same result every time.
Next, I am a wife. I have a husband who needs love and attention, and occasionally to be told what to do (There’s that bossy wench again!). Fortunately for me, he cooks, cleans, and does yard work. Woot! Woot! No ladies. He is not available!
Then, I am President of the Board of Directors for my local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation chapter. So I go to various events and publicly speak about why it is so important that we find a cure for this disease. I also run quarterly meetings where we work to keep the board focused on the fundraising goals of a nearly 2 million dollar chapter. (Hhhmmm…do-gooder bossy wench!)
Also, I am a cat pillow. Buster takes his lap time VERY seriously. Not even the computer is allowed to interfere with his time to knead and love on the mommy.
Finally, I am an aspiring romance writer. (Whew!) I write historical and science fiction romance. Mostly I write straight historical; but I so love Steampunk that I am pushing my boundaries and playing with reality. I am yet unpublished, but that will hopefully change very soon. (Bossy wench checking in! Yes, I regularly tell my characters what to do.) No I am not crazy, well okay I do hear voices, but I know they aren’t real. Snicker. I often listen to what they have to say and then tell them what I think they should do instead. It makes for interesting conversations with my self, that’s for sure.
So let’s recap. I am a bossy wench at work. I am a bossy wench at home. I am a bossy wench volunteer. I am a cat pillow. I am a bossy wench when I write. So I would have to say that if you need a bossy wench, I’m your gal. If not, I am sure I can tell you who/what you need, where to find it/them, and ultimately what to do with it/them once you have it/them!
