When the sky is grey I want to believe that when the sun is hiding it still exists

I am sitting in the Cincinnati airport and my mind is whirling (most likely the result of a 3am start to this day!). I have just realized that I have spent way too much of the last 24 hours complaining about a man who has been complaining way too much. Maybe it's the exhaustion getting to me, but I am crazy ridiculous.
See, this is really the part of my job I love the most. It's fun, it's busy, it's exciting, and it's the kind of thing where you immediately see the fruit of your labor. I just let the physical demands and hectic nature get the best of me.

If I haven't mentioned it before, I am a fan of South Carolina. I didn't get to see much, but Greenville is a delightful little place. There is a crazy allegiance and intense loyalty to the collegiate football team that makes the community slightly more electric than necessary - which is highly entertaining.
My day yesterday started with a delivery. About 30 boxes, a couple Lowe's, Pier 1's, Target's, and 8 hours later - I could check off the first of 6 projects.
This is where we started:

And this is the end result!

I'm currently en route to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to spend the day with one of the most contagiously positive people I've ever encountered. I've never been to Iowa... I have high hopes to experience some pretty outstanding corn. I hear it's about all that Iowa has to offer.

Stay tuned.
