We're enjoying part of our evening at the Laundromat. One of the small pleasures of full timing. When we move to the Cradle we'll have free laundry in the volunteers' community building. Nice deal!
We completed the second day of training today. It went very well. We also received our first issue of uniforms. The volunteer coordinator (Barbara) assured us that the uniforms ran at least a size or two small. That appeared to be true but it didn't make any of the ladies happy when they had to request a significantly larger size. I, at 6'5" received no uniform. Barbara is confident we''ll work this out.
The longer we're here, the more we figure out that there's a lot there we haven't even seen yet. I guess that just makes the experience that much more interesting.
We're developing some nice casual friendships among our fellow volunteers. Several have made significant gestures of friendship. Quite nice!
We received the "greeting cards" we ordered today. They're like business cards with our names, contact info and pictures on the back of Bo, Laska, Debbie and Duane. I like them. We've already exchanged them with a few folks (somewhat of a tradition among full timers). It's kind of like exchanging those cheap little valentines we exchanged back in elementary school, only more meaningful.
Tomorrow we have a CPR class in the morning and first aid in the afternoon. Boring, but I understand necessary. I'll pay attention like an adult.
