John F Dean wrote:I broke down and hired someone for 4 hours at $25 an hour.  Yes, I made a point of hiring the right person...For $100.00 he eliminated 3 pain in the backside jobs that I had long been getting around to do.

Yes, once I get better organized, I plan to use him for another 4 hours.



I hired someone this spring to help finish up with joint compound and painting the ceiling.

One of the best decisions of my life!

Scott:  my spouses new iPhone came with a health app that monitors daily steps etc. but ALSO his gait when walking.  It was invaluable after the hip replacement to ensure there was even length to the steps.  You may find a similar app could assist you with walking, and avoid the dreaded PT.
 
I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
