The last few months I have fell off the woodworking bandwagon. This year has not started out like I envisioned. Its been a perfect storm of life complications that have kept me out of the shop. After the first of the year my father passed away. A week and a half later we had the worst ice storm I can ever remember. Folks were without power for weeks. I had my mother and brother crashing in our living room for over a week. No sooner had they gone home I had a bout with pancreatitis. Not more than a month later I had another round with pancreatitis and it won. I ended up in the hospital for 6 days. As soon as the doctors say my pancreas has healed I will end up in back in the hospital for gallbladder surgery and another 4-6 weeks of recovery time. Its just been one of those years.
