They’re doing road construction outside my office at school, which means that I’ve had to take several meetings somewhere else or endure the sound of one of those giant hammer things. Well, now they’re ripping up the street right in front of our place, which is not only insanely loud, but when they hit the street just right, our place shakes just a little. Carrie said it started yesterday afternoon and that she couldn’t get any writing done because of it. I would have been impressed had she could.
I think we’ll be spending the day out and about, but I also take this as some kind of sign regarding that vacation I was thinking of taking before the first day of school. . . .
