Life is almost normal here. The electricity is on, the phone line is back and I’m full of antibiotics. I did make it to class yesterday and today and, except for a terrible cough, am feeling pretty good. My first night of welding was interesting to say the least. Soldering I understand. Fusing, no problem. Welding…well that’s another beast. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will say I’m one of the slow learners. The class is mainly middle-aged men and young men looking to work in the industry. There is another woman besides Sarah and me, but she doesn’t seem outwardly friendly. After class, a couple of the guys were chatting with us about problems they had. Seems like everyone had their share so I didn’t feel too alone. Hey, if I start out this bad, I can only get better!
Now it’s time to finish that pesky bathroom floor we started. This should be a good weekend for it. No ice storm has been predicted so I don’t think we can blame acts of God if it doesn’t get done. Tomorrow, I’ll post pics of the first round of bathroom fun.
