I do construction work, both new and remodel, so it’s hard telling when I’ll be able to go back to it. Hopefully in another month or two my legs will be stretched out and healed enough to tackle it. I do a bit of everything depending on the job — framing, electrical, plumbing, tile work, you name it. Most of it is fairly labor intensive though, so I just have to see how it goes. My last job was this past winter.
I’m also writing a novel, which might suit me better until the weather improves next spring.
Right now I’m more limited by my legs than anything. They tightened back up while resting after this surgery, so now I’m trying to get them back into shape by walking as much as I can, which isn’t very far unfortunately. I used to walk several miles everyday and think nothing of it. Now I’ll walk a few hundred feet and my muscles are screaming at me.
