My mother always told me not to work too hard, but I don’t think mom ever counted on this. She’s a great woman, but I don’t think she knew what the pressure of being a businesswoman and a mom, as well as a wife and member of all kinds of clubs, would do to a woman - it’s a lot of pressure keeping up with the Joneses these days. I’ve got so many responsibilities from answering my boss’s late night emails on my Hughesnet in San Juan Bautista to taking the kids to and from all their practices to preparing meals for everyone – things they like to eat that taste great. I really don’t know where some women find the time, because I feel like I don’t have one minute to myself and I’m not even the busiest mom that I know. I’ve only got 2 kids – what about Sally down the street who has 5 – how in the world does she juggle it all? My mom would have marveled at that woman.
