Construction, even if it is in the basement, is insidious. Dust somehow blows through the cracks and make it's way all the way up the second floor each and every day that there is work being done. We're making progress on the flood repairs. As these things tend to happen, once they opened up the walls to replace the paneling, new problems arose and there were complications. A job that was meant to be done in two weekends is now going on four weeks. Thankfully progress is being made and the work is solid. Although two cooking classes have been sacrificed to the work being done, come hell or high water, we'll be ready for the hydrocolloid classes this weekend. Which is not to say that the construction will be done, just that we'll be able to move a good percentage of stuff from the basement back down there, thus freeing up the space necessary to hold the actual classes. Sometimes the closer you get to the finish line, the harder it is to maintain your focus and stay on your game. Once you get there though, it'll all be worth it.
