So I went to work the other night....tuesday night. We were busy, humped aircraft all night long, and had like 3 hours of sleep the night before. I dropped by home depot to grab about $50 in conduits for my 220V install to the garage, and got home. I've spent the last 3 days digging a trench from the house to the garage, trying to stay to code at 18" down, but thanks to CT's rockbed and the huge oak trees I have, it's impossible to dig that deep in areas. Plus having a bad back means I can only scoop out so much at a time...so it took longer than expected. Anyways.... I got the materials all lined out, trench dug, wires prepped to pull thru, and my backs killing me. But I worked all day long, with McDonalds carbs, water, and beer...and actually got the job done. I pulled the 10/3 wire for the electricity for the garage, a phone wire, and the cable for the internet and TV....thru a 1.25 PVC conduit. Buried everything and hooked up the cable so the internet will work. I'll install a curcuit breaker box later and re-wire the garage after I finish the corner and the door install I have planned...anyways...no sleep. by the time I get showered and cleaned up and to bed...it's 9:00 pm...and I have to wake up at 10:30 to get to work... Now the wife starts her ESL classes monday...yes..she's actually going to learn English as a second language for college...and get credits for it...and she has her manitory meeting for the college thursday at 10:30 am...and she wants me to take her and help her if she has any questions. Plus I got work tonight to do, and I have a physical theripy appointment right afterwork, then head home and grab the wife and take her to her college thing. Sure, I'm tired, no sleep, working my back like crazy because I know I'll get relaxed at the doctors in the morning, and I'll make my daily money at work... WElp...after I fell asleep at 9:00, the wife let me sleep like a baby. She knew I would be so dead tired after work that I wouldn't be able to take her to the college, so she left me to sleep and woke me up and con'ed me to take the night off. She even had my phone with her so I could call work. So tired and sore, I passed right back out and she woke me again at 2:00 am to kick me out of the bed so she can sleep...so I'm down on the couch, hungry, and pissed off that she did this....I need the money, I needed to work, and most importantly...I needed to get my back Zapped with electrodes so my muscles will stop pinching the nerves in my spine.....she was sooooo concerned about having me at her college breifing that she left me to sleep, I lose a night of work, and I'll miss my damn PT appointment...and the next appointment is not till next tuesday...so I'll be in pain and drugged up on advil all week-end. Ohh well, but atleast I got to and did a project that I planned to do back in January...the garage will have a phone, fax, and 220 volts to power the aircompressor and welder. Plus I'll have power outlets everywhere to plug into and when I turn on something,....the lights won't dim. And I'll be working till end of the year with as much OT as I want...they asked me to come in 2 hours early a night if I want to....more later when the mad rush to get all the aircraft done before Dec. But for over 48 hours, only 9 hours of sleep....and I'm now awake, in pain, posting at this time of the morning while chugging a few beers, pissed that I missed work and PT, and watching more vids on youtube. Ain't life grand? /end rant....I love to rant.
