Day One by Tom

Blog #1 – Tom

Our first day was pretty intense. We woke around 7 AM, ate breakfast, and then prepared for our long day. The site was exactly as I expected. As we started working, I started to wonder “Wow. How can anyone live like this?” The room that we cleaned contained items varying from shotgun shells to glitter. We also cleaned out an interesting refrigerator. The smell was a mix between rotten potatoes and peppers. We ripped the siding off, but most of the demolition work will be saved until tomorrow. I feel pretty beat, but I look forward to the week ahead.
