Today I had a “first”. I called a WC resi job and postponed until I get back from a 7 day vacation to see my kids and grandson. I postponed because I am fatigued and my tendinitis needs some rest. I’ve been working 6, sometimes 7 days a week for too many years.
I am very fortunate that I rarely get sick enough to miss work over the last 3 decades. This is probably because of all the shots I got during my 3 years in the Corps a long time ago. The flip side of that coin is that I have not been scheduling enough time to recharge my body.
I was excited last month because April was my best grossing month since I started almost 2 1/2 years ago. I’ve been trying to make May surpass April but I see now that it is more important to slow down before I fall down. Being fatigued and hurried while doing ladder work is not a good combination.
