I bitch too much
Barney told me something the other day that I didn't really think about: I bitch too much about my life on this blog. Really, I've been bitching about my bills, my back, my work, etc... , but I really haven't been very positive, and I do apologize for that. So I'm going to sum up things without complaining too much. Really.
In all my complaining, you might have thought my back pain was still bad. In reality, my back pain is far better than before my surgery. I've been back at work for two weeks now, and obviously have about four zillion projects that need to be taken care of. I started driving a clutch a few days ago, which was a big step (the week before I was driving my sister's automatic).
I'm able to walk around, stand up, and work fairly well (can't sit down for too long, per the doctor, though I'm still able to sit very comfortably). All in all, the surgery worked quite well, and I'm very happy to have had it, despite my bills.
My family is doing good. Baby's growing up too fast, and is just about six months old now, and starting to get a lot more personality. I think she's mad at me for going back to work as I was home more before. She protested quite a bit when I came home from work for the first time in a while. Hannah just turned four-years-old last week, she's going on 13 all too fast.
My wife's doing well. I can't help much yet around the house, so she's still having to do most of the housework, but I'm slowly being able to help her a little bit. Tomorrow I start on my exercise regimen -- basically just slow steady movements to get strength back to my legs, abdomen, and back. I'm actually quite excited about it.
There, hopefully that wasn't too much complaining :-)
