My day off today, but not feeling productive.  Slept miserably last night....think from allergy crap brought on from hogging down the back 40.  Baumbaum brought me a bunch of respirators, and I got one ready, but I forgot it and didn't wanna drive back to get it.....mistake.

  I'll pull out of this slump & get something done.  Just now getting time to bring all my tractors home from plow day.  One load on trailer here, then a couple more loads to fetch.  Hoping to get all home today.  It's a good time to clean & arrange the sheds before the tractors go back in.  Usually we do this before winter hits so we can get into the sheds without climbing over stuff we cram in there all the rest of the year.

Allergies just plain suck. 2 weeks ago I had either bad allergies or a cold. I went to work all week but 2 of the weeknights I slept 12 hours each.

Feel your pain Daniel. I put up 60 bales of alfalfa in the upper hay loft yesterday by myself, I woke up all congested. I slept in until 9 am which I almost never do and even skipped church this morning, between my allergies, back pain and my arm is really hurting ( tennis elbow), I couldn't get moving. Finally getting up and around.

3 loads of tractors home, one load to go, then later this week return the porta-potti.  Marty, I have an elbow thing too, but nerve issue (ulna nerve?)  Makes the 3 fingers furthest from the thumb numbish at the tips....both hands.  Hard to find bolt holes on undersides of things.  Not bad enough for surgery, and would have to get terribly bad before I would.  I can't be down for anything or things would really get bad around here in a hurry.

   I do feel better today after getting active though.

Mine started in June when i did the tile floor in the bathroom, spreading that heavy thin set then grout, major pain in my elbow joint. I wear an arm band, heat, ibuprofen but need to go to ortho doc and maybe gt cortisone shot. I've read supposed tendon strain. I know somedays it hurts just to touch my elbow. Can't wait till I start spreading drywall mud in a few weeks  :wallbanging:  :(

Glad you're feeling some better, Daniel. Hope the allergy season goes by easier for you. (And all others who have to suffer with allergies).

Daniel I had to have surgery on both elbows for cubit tunnel (think carpel tunnel in your elbow). The right elbow turned out great, the left one goes numb and occasionally feels like I have been electrocuted.

Never complain about storage room when someone who has ample available has a truck and a trailer.

 

I'll take those three:
