I have awesome news! We finally started the long...hard...growling process of house construction. Yes, we are building our house!! Wahoo! Well, and 5 others along with it. Saturday was the day...3 families, two supervisors, and three volunteers (bless their hearts) gathered for a long day of measuring, drilling, sawing and nailing. Most of us are learning the process so it seems a bit slow...but we managed to get three walls up and I got the chance to use a nail gun and a power saw. it's pretty cool and fairly simple to use. But I am grateful for the volunteers that came to help and try to teach us what to do.
Also Saturday (you may think I'm crazy) I did a trial run for the Hurricane 5K coming up this weekend. The wind was in my face the whole time. It was a feat I am proud to say that I conquered, slow...but steady.:) Today I feel very sore and I hope that by this Saturday that I can be faster for the real thing...we can only hope.:) There I am crossing the bridge...in the white shirt at the END of the line.:) photo courtesy of Cherie Santiago.
