My lovely bride was ever do kind enough to help me with what sanity I have left, and helped me hoist the G0572 in to position, as I snugged the lag bolts down. It is GREAT to buy back that bit of floor space it was using up. Now mind you, I don’t have any plans for any heavy lifting this weekend, and like I said, my lovely bride was kind enough to get the filter in place, so I should not be throwing my healing from the back injury off too badly.

Tomorrow is going to be a full day, starting off with an early trip to the Dr. office (yes, my primary care physician has saturday hours), then off to the church to donate the back of the cab of my truck full of non perishable foods to the food pantry ministry, then a trip to tire shop to have front tires installed on the Saturn, then the safety inspection, and finally back home to dig in to the misc stuff all over the shop. At the very least, I want to finish insulating the second overhead door, which will get 4 full sheets of foam board out of the garage, which would be a great start to this mess…

There is so much more that needs to get done, For now, I am more than happy with making any progress…

I’m glad to hear that—even though you need help (don’t we all, from time to time ?)—you’re getting some work done.

And … for the donation to the food pantry … bless you. I’ve been hungry, before. It sucks.

The food pantry ministry is something deeply heart felt by both the wife and I. We’ve both been on the receiving end, and are blessed enough to be able to do something about it for others….

I’m glad you are getting a little work done and hope that your back recovers fully.

Other than the meds have been giving me an extreme case of hiccups, I am feeling pretty good this morning…. Actually I went without the pain reliever most of the day yesterday and was only hurting a little bit by the time I went to bed…. Hopefully this will be history soon…

Sounds like real progress, just remember to get into to back strengthening exercises once you are ready.

Already working on them. I tried skipping the meds this morning because I hate the way they make my head feel. Now my back isn’t happy about it. Not huge pain, but I KNOW something is wrong…
