    Not only am I getting weaker, I\'m also getting dumber!

    Seems like last year and the year before, me and one other person had no serious problem each lifting one end of a 14 Bolt full floater rear end, and carrying it to the truck and loading it. Now, we just look at it, roll it or drag it to the truck, and load it one end at a time.

    Another guy and I needed to unload a complete 350 out of the back of my truck without a cherry picker. Once the motor left the tailgate, I couldn't walk; all I could manage was letting the motor straight down to the floor.

    Plus, I used to be able to beat 80-85% of the people I know at arm wrestling...now its more like 20%.

    So, now I'm weak, after being lazy alot, and torching off u-bolts and other bolts, or using air tools instead of the "old fashioned" way - by hand- that I used to. But to top it off, I'm getting dumber too! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    In the past 2 1/2 months, I've locked my keys in the ignition twice! The first time I was backing up to a tow bar on a truck to hook up. Once I got lined up, I shut the motor off, leaving keys in the ignition. I hooked up the tow bar, then locked my doors. I had to break one of the rear quarter glass panels in the back door the next morning.

    Last night, I parked the truck I recently got in my driveway, and shut off the motor. I grabbed my gloves and cell phone off the seat, hopped out, and locked the door after feeling keys in my pocket. After the door slammed, I realized the keys in my pocked were the ones to the garage. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif Luckily, I got the wing window unlatched a bit ago, and reached my muscle-lacking arm through to grab the keys out of the ignition.

    Oh Well, even though I'm weak and dumb, at least I'm rich. Oh, wait a minute...I'm not rich. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    I know how you feel. I spent 1/2 toubleshooting a computer this morning, changing the power supply, motherboard and cpu. The other end of the power cord wasnt plugged in!

    I think I am starting to lose my hair.

    Yeah, I'm only 21...although today it feels more like 61.

    I'm completely sore all over from yesterday, and I didnt even get everything done I needed to. I unbolted a truck bed, and a friend and I moved the truck bed and cab off the frame then put another bed and cab back on, I changed 14 tires, moved around two trucks in the driveway and one 454 sitting in the breezeway, unloaded 2 axles and loaded one, and framed an inside wall section and window frame in the basement we're remodeling. I was supposed to swap out two more truck beds, unload 3 more axles, and change some leaf springs, but I just ran out of time.

    I need to do this much stuff every day, then I'd get in better shape and be used to it, so I wouldnt be sore the next day.

    Right now, I'm skipping my two classes since I feel sore and I didn't finish my homework that was due today.

    24 here... Feel like 74. Always tired and achy. Got so lazy on leaving my keys in the truck (and locking the door out of habbit) I made a copy of the truck keys and hid them in my wallet. The day I leave my pants and my keys in the truck I will pull the door locks out /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif J
