Loud construction going on all around me; Cardio!

Two houses immediately across the street from the North side of our home (which is where my home office is located) are being built. Construction on these two homes started at the exact same time, and has now progressed to the point where the walls are ready to go up. Since 7:00 AM this morning there have been a couple dozen masons at both home sites laying up the concrete walls.

With all the loud music, talking/yelling, banging around and very loud machinery, I can tell I’m going to have a tough time focusing on my work today. The home immediately behind us is also under construction. I think I’m going to take my laptop and retreat to the other side of the house. The masons will have the walls completed today, but there are going to be quite a few days like this over the next few months. I’m just glad these two homes are going up at the same time; that will effectively cut the number of noisy days in half. There are still like 3 or 4 empty lots around our house, though.

Anyway, I’m not complaining about it. We knew full well when we had our house built in the newest part of our subdivision that there would be construction going on all around us for the next year or two. Actually, I’m really happy that the lots around our home are selling so quickly. The sooner the empty lots around us are built out the better!

OK, this morning I’m back to doing cardio! I’m going to do 45 minutes of LISS on the bike. I generally don’t mind doing cardio at all, but this morning I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be great to get back in the gym and work up a sweat!
