I can't have caffeine till I am off the meds. I was too weak to fight.

Hope you get to feeling better soon. Caffeine withdrawal can be a bummer!

WOW....Willie without caffeine must be like a GT with no wheels, no engine, or no fuel!  Hope the withdrawal isn't too bad, but do NOT take caffeine whatever you do!  Hang in there buddy....you'll make it!

Decaf is almost acceptable to me now. There are even mornings I don't even think about it.

Decafe is a waste of time. Went to my doc today. She said I looked miserable, but I was still alive.

I am still breathing. The meds make everything taste terrible, but that is OK because the only thing I can eat is soda crackers and ginger ale. But think of the weight I will lose.

Well I got out of the house today.

 

 

 

After a week of resting up and drinking lots of liquids I got my first night of descent sleep last night Well except for the guy who called me at 5am about a car. I don't remember much about the call.

Yesterday my neighbors son, John, called me about a car at his shop. I told him that we could come get it today. So after I woke up at around 1130 we all went out and got in the BlueOx.

 

 

He shop is only about 5 minutes away so I drove.

 

By the time we had the car loaded up and got home I was so weak I could barely walk, but it felt good to get out again.

Glad you got out, even just for a short time.  Always feel good after being cooped up sick.

Finally after a week of being decafinated...

Then we eased into the work for today. At around 1030 we headed down to the scrap yard to crush the 626 I got from my neighbor.

 

Then we headed back home to drop off the tires from the Mazda and head off to Hickory to get a BMW.

 

When the dealership that took it on trade called me yesterday and said they had a BMW that only needed a clutch I knew it had to be rough. I was wayyyyyyy off. I have seen better looking cars come from a demolition derby. It is horrendous. And it looks like someone emptied a dumpster into it.

 

It didn't come along easily. The drivers door would not open. Once we got into it there were no keys. And the wheels were turned. Since it was a 5 speed the transmission was easy. Persuading it to go straight while the wheels were turned was not. After two jacks (the factory BMW widowmaker and an old Chevy bumper jack) we got it coaxed over into the right position and strapped it down.

 

It was a wee bit warm. Even Heath worked up a thirst.

The Bummer is back there, hiding behind his car seat.

 

 

On the way home we stopped for lunch and then visited a friends garage in Newton.

 

At 4pm we got home. Heath was tired. He had still not had a nap. Steph brought him right in and stuffed him in the bed while I got started on the Bummer.

 

We got ti almost all the way apart and then got to one stupid bolt on the head. It refused to budge. I took the angle grinder and a chisel to it and the head is still on it.

 

Then it started to rain. We ran for cover and called it a day.

 

 

Tomorrow I get to go pick up my two girls. I am excited.

Glad to hear you got some coffee in you so you could type. I was beginning to wonder if the hat was down for the count. Hope tomorrow works out!
