I’m exhausted. And smelly. And achy. And I love it. It feels so good to work again. I lifted, literally, over a ton today (not all at once mind you but I’m working up to that). I pushed, pulled and coaxed even more. I feel manly. And tired (did I mention that?). This job will definitely get me in shape. But the best part is exactly what I thought – I’m working with my hands instead of living in my head. I needed that.
