It has been a month and two days since we broke ground.
Almost all the walls are up and being in and out of the three rooms feels real, almost as though one could live there, eventually. I am told this coming week will be the plastering of the inside walls, and maybe more. Whether that's what happens next week or not, I feel pretty confident that a month from now, it's going to be a huge change. It is starting to look really sweet.
Yesterday, with the crew working till 1:00 because it's Saturday, I showed them some photos of what they had done over the last thirty days. With no electricity. With their hands.
I had hesitated to share my excitement with them because this last week, I had also been a bit frustrated by what seemed like a slowing down, lack of showing up, and some seeming distraction from Jorge.
So I didn't want to give them a reason to slack, thinking that I was so very happy with things. Hmmmm.... strategy.
In the end, it felt most authentic to share my thrill of their accomplishment while making sure to tell them when I left: see you all on MONDAY!
And... we have quite a few more hurdles to jump over - hopefully joyfully. We keep going.
