made it through the week!

The title of the post says it all! Our week had several ups and downs but we made it through it all and now have 2 days off. Monday evening the rains started and continued all day Tuesday. On top of having to contend with the rain the internet in the office went down. We waited about an hour and when it didn't come back up Rudee called Verizon. She was on the phone for over an hour as they tried different things until deciding their system was having "issues". Turns out it was a huge issue with much of the country having problems. We ended up doing the best we could and handled things pretty well. The biggest issue was renting and checking in the Penske trucks but we were able to take care of those by calling Penske where they did the paperwork on their mainframe and faxed us copies.
Wednesday is our "Friday" at this site. We had a trainee here in the morning who works at a nearby site and will be filling in a couple of days here next week. He needed to learn Penske so we taught him the best we could. Luckily the internet was back up when we opened up, otherwise it would have been a short class! I hope we didn't scare him off. :-) He kind of had that "deer in the headlights" look in his eyes. :-)
Once we got off work Rudee suggested we go to Red Lobster to celebrate surviving our week. "Heck ya, I'm in!" I offered to get the bike out since it was a warm evening and she was all for that! We took the short ride over and had a nice meal. We even made it back to the 5er in time to watch the debate on TV.

Our plan today and tomorrow are to do some more sightseeing before our last work day on Saturday. I'll keep you posted!
