    All vacation I've been working on the property, installing baseboards in the house, working on my hillbilly truck and cleaning my shop along with normal chores. My feet, legs, hands and back are hurting. WTF?!?! I'm in decent shape, usually active, workout semi-regularly and am used to hard work but for some reason this last week has taken it's toll. WHAAAAAaaaaaaaa........

    Did you work while kneeling too? This year I can't kneel without pain, so now I have industrial strength knee pads to compensate for whatever I lost through aging. Life sucks.

    Not going into the city and dealing with other people's stupid problems is more relaxing than I can ever put into words. All the stuff I've done at home has been with a smile. :toptip:

    I have knee pads but I didn't wear 'em......most of the woodwork stuff was done squatting. My knees themselves feel great.....it's the leg muscles that are screaming. Walking up the stairs feels like a workout now. ZOINKS!!!!

    I know but you are more physically exhausted than you would be if you were working. Mrs Lemmy should give you a nice, long massage :hump:

    over the past 6 years I've changed the ways I do most physical labor now: knee pads, different height stools, etc. things I did bending over, I now do seated, etc. my parts don't handle the stresses that well anymore.

    Donuts aren't my thing. Wave an apple scone at me though and I'm fucked!

    I'll take some pics tomorrow if you want......what would you like to see? I've posted plenty of pics before showing most of the place and don't want to seem like I'm trying to show off or be a "look at me" weirdo.

    No thanks! I get a certain satisfaction doing most things myself. :toptip:

    I don't even know what that is and would blow 'em off even if I did! I'm an asshole and just workout to keep by gorilla strength up "just in case" I need it at work. Any other exercises I've tried I'm just not motivated to stick with. Not smart, I'm sure, but I never claimed to be.

    She's been busting her ass too. She's been working all week and doing loads of yard work and a shitload of other chores as well. She can use a massage as well.

    I've adapted to make most of my jobs easier on me as well but sometimes there's nothing you can do. I'm gonna be pulling the transmission/transfer case in my truck soon. I was debating going "old school" and just muscling them out/in but I think maybe I should get my tranny jack back that I loaned to a buddy. After this week I'm not so sure I should try bench pressing the transmission back into position. This is depressing to admit.

    I like the way you think mister! :toptip:
