Scratch one more Profession from the list

I now know that I would never want to be a convict breaking rock for gravel. We decided to add two windows into our basement to make two rooms officially bedrooms. My father-in-law and I dug two 5’ deep window wells, cut the concrete with a saw, and broke out the concrete with a sledge hammer to get those windows in place, all in about 5 days. I know I couldn’t have done it without my father-in-law, but I was left to do most of the grunt work by myself, because he was hurt coming in. By Saturday, my hands were so sore that I couldn’t shake hands, or clap, without pain. I can’t imagine doing this job day in, and day out. It really gives me an appreciation for those that do. For those who read this blog regularly—no, we still do not have the other remodel projects done yet. We delayed them to do this job first while we had the help of someone who knew what they were doing.

Take care. Stick

I know lots of convicts and they don't have to break up cement. They get indigent packages and "three hots and a cot" :0) But you don't need to worry because you have too much integrity to ever end up as a convict!
