Summer continues unabated

June has been making up for May's rain with my having an average of 11 hour days all week. Today was my longest day yet at 12.25 hours.

Theo and I have been working together doing commercial vegetation control. I don't miss wearing the full body coveralls, especially in this weather.

Last weekend I went up to Fort McMurray for Father's Day and had a great time with the whole family.

Working all day

So over the last three weeks I've been moving on Sunday, working on Sunday, and was down on Sunday, so I haven't really updated. Fortunately, nothing much has happened since then.

I'm back at summer job from last year doing vegetation control. I've been doing a lot of training for industrial sites, and that means sitting through a dozen different refinery orientations. I've managed to not hit my head on the table falling asleep in any of them. It's pretty rough getting up at 5 AM, but I make enough money in the summer so that I don't need to work through the school year.

I'm all moved into my new house. My room is a lot smaller, and it has hardwood, but I have my own half-bathroom! Nice. So if there's a zombie attack, I can survive comfortably in my room for about three weeks. More if I stock some food in here.
