thank you so much.

I'm OK I guess, I'm just so tired. I worked all day today and I still have tons to do. I'll be hauling cut logs to the street again tomorrow and I still have to cut up the damaged A-frames. I have a frame on the other side that I need to put a tarp back onto. There's stuff everywhere in the yard. I need to dig a French drain along the side of the back room of the house and install a sump pump in a container in the ground. The room almost went under water. That was scary.

My legs are all scratched up from walking through the branches back and forth. I called my dad yesterday and told him, my legs looked like I was standing in a box of angry cats. ūüėā Hey, I have to laugh a little to break the stress. I'll be OK. Just don't send another storm this way for another 10 years or so, or ever.

Looks like it will miss us now. Thanks for the thoughts.

I'm sorry I haven't been on much lately. I still have a ton of work around here to get back to normal. And to add to the delay, my back is giving me problems and slowing me way down. I can't seem to stand all the way up straight. My sciatica has flared up on my right side, giving me a limp. I am in pain all day while I stand.

I have to get this stuff done as soon as I can. I just want it done. Digging the drain is out for now. I may have to hire some help to finish. And I need to get off my feet and let my back heal. I don't want to go through another back surgery like I did in '95.

Sorry for the depressing note above. I feel a little better today. I drug the last of the limbs out to the street today. There's still lots of smaller branches and small stuff to control, but I'll get it. My back will heal. It just needs time.

Everything thade said!


Have you tried "Deep Heat" for your pain? Dad used to use it. I've also tried it for back pain. Smells something awful but it might help.

Thanks guys. Yes, I do use heat. I also have a sticky pad with battery that uses electrical pulses to calm the muscles and nerves. I does a pretty good job. It feels a little better today. I think each day will be a little better.

I'm glad that you have something that works! My mother has had myalgic encephalomyelitis for over 30 years and nothing works when it flares up bad.

I've been real busy after this last storm. I will post when I can, but my days lately have been full and I try to go to bed early. Keep posting and I'll get online when I can.

It's less than an hour to go before the Microsoft Press Conference starts and I'm so excited. "A watched pot never boils". That's how time is moving right now. The dogs are barking and the wife is sleeping. I'm alone with my laptop. So it goes for this Sunday afternoon.

I've been gathering game info and posting like crazy the last few days. I get run down some and now I'm behind, reporting on the shows. This happened last year, so it's not a surprise. Bare with me and I'll catch up in a few days.
