Couple of Crappy Days

These past two days have been complete shit. Yesterday it seemed like I was angry at everything. Today, after zero sleep, I’ve been in big time pain. After helping the accounting department close for year end first thing this morning, I’ve tried to get a couple things done around the house. I still have tools around from the beam work that I can’t get put away, and I have ice building up on the roof that I tried to do something about, but I was in too much pain to get any done. I feel like everything is crumbling down on me. Now we have quite a bit of snow coming in the next few days. I fucking hate snow now because of the cleanup and pain, and I use to love snow. Fuck it, just fuck everything.

Some Snow

I got about 5 inches of fresh snow from yesterday through last night. That amount isn’t much at all, but enough to where I have to snow blow the driveway. The snow is really light and fluffy, but it still has taken me 1 1/2 hours to just shovel the deck, brush the car off, and get the snow blower up to the house. This sciatica is really killing me, it will now take me close to 4 hours to do a 45 minute job. I was thinking of going for a drive today, but that’s out of the question now. Once I’m done with the drive, my body will be shot. Doc says my sciatica is getting better because the pain is changing, that’s true, but it’s still just as much pain, just different. I just ate 6 ibuprofen, so in a few minutes I’ll go back out and see how much I can get done. This Fucking Sucks! I’m really hating life.

Beam Be Done

It’s done. Took longer than I thought, but at least it’s finished.
Now I have a shit load to clean up, tools and such. All the dust from cutting and crap that fell from inside I cleaned up as I went.
It looks better than what the pictures show.

Facebook Memory

This came up on my Facebook memory today.
I really miss Grizwald. Griz was the smartest dog I’ve had, and can only hope he will come back around to show himself. You could tell he had been here before.

This Week

I haven’t done much of anything this week, just work and stretching for my back. Today I was able to get a few more boards up on the beam, so this completes the living room side. I hope to finish the other side this weekend, shouldn’t be too much.

Beam Work Part Deux

Today’s beam work went better than yesterday, although slow. Before I got to work, I had to run to the hardware store and get more screws. I ended up doing some fine trimming with the Dremel to make a couple areas fit properly, and also used the Dremel to trim the existing (old) trim back from where to barn wood it going. I’ve had this Dremel Multi-Max for a number of years now, but this is the first time I’ve really used it, and wow, does it ever do a great job.
I didn’t get it finished, but shouldn’t take long now, now that I know what needs doing to finish it up.
All in all, I think it looks pretty good, and I’m happy with it.
