« Part 1: New Old Wood Part 2 of Rough Sawn Walnut series Part 3: Finally, back in the shop »

Well I was hoping to start going through the pile and start sorting and cleaning it up. But Sunday after I unloaded the truck, I started to cough a little, nothing big or anything to get concerned with. I went to work Monday, felt fine until about 1:00. Then I was down and out. I had to stick around work ‘till 4 because I have a staff meeting. I stoped by the store and picked up some cold meds and went to bed. I slept until 9:00 am. That’s 16 hours of down time! I haven’t slept like that since college.

Needless to say I had to call in sick today, only my second time ever calling in sick to work. I’m one of “thoses people” that seldom get sick. Oh I may get a sniffle of two but rarely down and out under-the-weather. It’s been 10 years since I’ve felt like. Guess the Gods are taking back my good fortune in spades.

I know the feeling chunk. I don’t get sick very often, but when I do, look out. It will put me down for a while.

Get better and wait until your head clears before heading to the shop. Nothing like trying to make a precision cut and sneezing. Could get VERY dangerous.
