Hey, just a note...in spite of "circurmstances" I just can't stay away for very long..... Answered

In spite of everything happening in the past few weeks/days, I can't stay away for long....I just have to check in now and then to help when I can where I can; it is what makes me happiest.

Rest doesn't seem to be much of an option of late, so if I can reduce stress at home, I may even be "work worthy" come Monday. 

I need to be here.....

I am reliably informed that "rest" is frequently not a good cure for stress caused by events beyond your control - it gives you too much time to dwell on things.

Instead, distract yourself with something you want to do for yourself.

Be selfish, and feel well (or at least a bit better).

I've gone ahead and taken the day off, one extra day of rest....Tues-Thurs though I must be better enough to get back to work, the only one's that could cover for me will be in a few states away....

Again, don't push yourself - if you go back to work unfit, you'll end up off again, for even longer.

I know, but I have always "had" to do what "had to be done". And with us as short staffed as we'll be the next 3 days, I haven't much of a choice.

But I am honestly  thinking that this all "started over the weekend before" and this time didn't "go away" when I went to work......the stress is mostly at home, having to be nursemaid to the now 53 year old Huey *sigh*

This is just such a BAD week for this to have happened though.....at work, those that would have "normally" covered for me, will be "out west" at a conference....I have to be at work Tues-Thurs, unless I call in dead.

The Docs have said as long as I can "tolerate" it, I am ok to do this (and as long as no  one touches the wound site or exchanges body fluids with me; I am ok, which now has my wife worried *sigh*).  

This morning, as if to add insult to injury, I woke with severe sharp eye pain in my left eye.  

I am hoping it is something simple (like a stray eye lash or something) and not a detached cornea.....when you pass 50, the fun never ends....

Thanks Kiteman I have come to that same conclusion of late, as I prepare to have lunch (yeah it is nearly 4:30 pm here, got a late start today ;-) I am thinking again on how to go about drilling out the boxed frame in order to light it sufficiently with a the fewest LEDs possible.....then I realized I had goofed and ordered 18 LEDs to put on the four sides; which means I can space them pretty evenly, I just can't space them in equal numbers to a side; or I can wait until my next batch arrives......
hmmm, no I need to work on this now :-)
