You might have received a little note of gibberish from me the past few minutes – please forgive me as I am still slightly under the influence of pain killers. But I digress-
I noticed from the calendar that it’s been some time since my last post.This was beyond my control this time – no laziness or busy schedule to place blame. Nope, this was an old fashioned accident that has kept me until now from the keyboard.
On June 8th I was happily detailing the rain-screen underlayment on the mudroom addition. Limestone cladding is going over this little addition, and my twin ladder and scaffold board setup was working fine and I had been working on them for several hours – that is until a wasp decided to visit me dive bomber style.
On wave of the hand and off the ladder I went backwards. Determined to avoid a head injury I made sure I landed feet first. And I stuck the landing. that’s a good thing – and a bad thing. Good= no bump on my noodle Bad= 60 year old bones at 8′ on to a concrete sidewalk meant there would be problems.
So I sit and write this note to you in a wheelchair – a place I’ll be for the next three months. One foot whose heel is now sporting a metal plate with 8 screws and the other leg complete with three pins.
So no pictures this time – but the good news is I will walk again. I will get to continue my epic little misadventure.
Perhaps the old girl needed a rest from my constant revisions – or maybe I did.
Whatever the reason – I’ll be back doing and redoing – and I let you know what’s going on right here at Misadventures in Remodeling.
Here’s wishing everyone a safe and happy summer.
Talk to you soon.
