Well it’s been two weeks since I started doing maintenance at OCWD and it’s been very fun.  You name it, we fix it.  I hardly need any extra exercise outside of work because I get my heart rate up at least 2-3 hours a day along with tons of walking.  I have to keep shoving food in my face as well to keep my energy up which is nice.  Compare that to driving by a 7-11  in my old truck and thinking, “Hmmm… I’m bored…. should I eat some junk food?”

The other day, they rented a man-lifter to fix some hard to reach lights that were two stories high.  In the morning when everyone was standing around they said, “Hey new guy, get up in there!”  I climbed in, switched it on and was lifted 30 feet in the air.  I was a good 5 feet over the two story maintenance building.  It was pretty sturdy at the bottom, but the boom (retracting pole that lifts you up) was swaying and it was kinda scary.  Now I know how Kevin must feel all the time.

Anyways, that’s it for now.
