Off To Work I Go

As I mentioned we are now in North Dakota and have started working at the job site this week.  How very different this is from any job I have had before.

Our office is in a construction trailer without running water on site.  They bring in non-potable water for bathrooms and bottled water for consumption.  At least there are regular bathrooms and not porta-potties.

We do have a private office but so far, only my hubby has internet connection.  This makes for long, boring days when I can't do a lot of work but I do manage to stay busy.

Today we had a pre-construction meeting for one of the contracts and the trailer was full of guys from all areas of the construction process.  There must have been 30-40 people here and I was one of 3 women.  Yes, I did feel outnumbered!

So as we settle in to our new positions, things are going as well as can be expected and I still look forward to my first day in the field when I get to wear my FR clothing and hard hat.
