It has been pointed out to me that it’s been a few days since I last posted. That’s because I’ve been busy.
Last time I posted, I showed the progress I was making on our dining room table and the window seat. I have finished both. This morning we were finally able to have breakfast at the dining room table for the first time since I started work on it:
Yesterday I stained the window seat and today I varnished it:
Today, I worked for the second time at Seaquist. They had me training as a cashier under the tutelage of Julie — the woman I worked with my first morning in the warehouse. There is no heat or air conditioning in the building. Whatever the temperature is outside, that’s pretty much what it is inside. It was very cold today so I spent most of the day in my winter down coat with the hood up and wearing my finger-less gloves. One of my customers saw me and said, “You put a smile on my face!” That’s always a good thing to do in life, even if it comes from looking silly! A couple people from Wagon Trail Campground came in today and also a woman who lives down the road from us that we first met at Wagon Trail.
Mark has been having all kinds of success in the last few days. A couple days ago we ran to Green Bay to get some stuff for some of his clients, and as we were driving down the road, someone saw the signs on Mark’s truck and called to ask him to come and look at their pop-up camper. Mark’s advertising works! Also, Mark helped the client with the bad roof problem appeal the denial of his insurance claim and they won! Next week, Mark will be tearing into the customer’s roof and rebuilding it. Today, Mark rented a U-haul truck to move a customer’s large RV to a new site in another campground. He reported that all went surprisingly well. That’s always a good thing to hear! At this point in the month, Mark has already exceeded his combined income for the last two summers from doing repairs. As we predicted, he is very much in demand. Mark found out that the other mobile RV tech in Door County has begun referring his customers to Mark as he is fazing out of his business due to health issues. We wish him well.
