So here I sit in my undies, in my office.........

Friday, June 22, 2012

Yup - 10 AM, I've been at school since 6 AM, a friend met me and we grouted for about 3 hours. I'm hot, sweaty, and even my bra is damp.

So I took off my filthy overalls, and I'm Sparking while wearing just a tank top and undies. What can I say, I need to cool off, I'm busy hydrating, and in a little bit I'll put back on my clothes and go home for a shower.

And the custodian just came in to see if I have an extension cord, LOL - me sitting here in what is equivalent to a swimsuit, drinking tons of water, and covered in grout dust despite a long wash in the sink!!!

But it feels good to know that we're almost 25% finished with the grout on one mural, that I did my ST before I left home, that my cardio for the day is done. Because after 3 hours of schlepping buckets, chairs, ladder, grout, water out to the wall, climbing up and down the ladder to grout and then wipe with wet sponges, then grouting the low areas and wiping off excess with wet sponges, then back up the ladder to polish the dried areas with a soft cloth to get off the excess dust, then same on the lower areas, then clean off all the tools, then put everything back in the storage area - well, after 3 hours of that, I think that'll be my cardio for the day!

So I sit here in my office, in my undies, cooling off and hydrating.

    Sounds like you did put in a lot of cardio and a lot of work. I don't blame you for sitting sans pantalon. Have to cool down and dry off quickly after such a workout. Hydration is good. Have fun.

    I have to admit, it definitely is weird to sit in an office off a classroom, during the summer, sans pants or shorts. But when one is dripping sweat, well, it seems like the only thing to do, however weird.

    You've put in some hard work today...25% done. That's progress. Keep up the good work. When it comes to grouting, it's not easy, but the payoff... emoticon

    Yeah, I get home and toss everything in the laundry, shower, and start all over again with clean clothes! There is NO WAY to grout and not get filthy!
