The suite of offices where I work is currently being renovated. Our suite is in the basement of a 100+ year old building, and the mold, mildew, and asbestos that live under the walls has always been disgusting.
The powers that be have finally made the decision to renovate our office space. I am really excited about the remodel, but during the demolition phase, all of those mold, mildew, and asbestos particles have been released into the air. So now everyone who works in the entire building is coughing, and many have upper respiratory infections. I was fine until yesterday, when I cam home wit a violent cough and a raging swollen throat.
Fortunately, I don’t feel sick, just not able to talk. Thankfully, I get to type on this blog instead of talking, so the Money for College project weekly Roundup will go on!
