Ok. So, I have about three months worth of orders waiting, with more coming in. This is a very good thing except, I have been in bed for a week due to some ordinarily minor surgery. Turned out to be more complicated than expected. Every day I have been telling my wife, “I need to work!”. And every day I get the same response. “You need REST!” (It’s hard to imitate in her cute, beautiful, sexy, Brazilian accent.) So then she brings me another order a few minutes ago so I can give an estimate. Now I am really really itching to go out to the Shop. My stitches are removed Monday, so I plan on returning to work Tuesday. I’m praying anyway. I am about to leap out of my skin! I have been dreaming of all these cool projects for customers and for me but I can’t even glue two boards together until I have permission from the doctor! Aaaaaaaaaaagh!!!!!

I work with doctors (repair surgery equipment). Rest is nice, but it don’t pay bills & it’s boring. I would be bull-headed and still do minor things.

It’s not really the doctor that is keeping me from work. It’s my wife! Lol. She works at the hospital and won’t let me until the doc says ok! Lol. She baby’s me.

First Count your self very lucky your have a wife that loves and cares for you. Second it is really nice to still have job orders coming in to you in this market. That says you are a good woodworker with good work ethic.

+++++ All around if you ask me.
