Back … I hope

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

It’s hard to believe how long it’s been since I wrote anything here. Back on April 11, I had my wisdom teeth out. I was pretty afraid going into it, but I tried to convince myself I was overreacting. Immediately following the procedure, I felt surprisingly good. I was suddenly awake, and I was numb, but it didn’t seem so bad. I got a false sense of security. The next two days were terrible, and things have gotten gradually better since then (except getting dry sockets, which are still healing), but I was pretty much out of commission last week. I called in sick Monday and Tuesday and worked from home the rest of the week. I planned to go into the office yesterday, but woke up with probably the worst headache I’ve ever had.

Finally, today, I went in to the office. My ride to work this morning was also my first time back on a bicycle since my surgery. It felt good to ride, but I think it’ll probably be a couple more days at least before I can do any major riding. Naturally, during my hiatus, Spring hit in a big way around here, everything blooming, and the weather was finally warm and sunny. I missed out on some prime riding time, but it feels good to be back, at least to some extent.

I did manage to do some photography in there, taking some cool infrared shots, and we went hiking once. More on that later.

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better – sounds like quite an ordeal. But you’re right – spring seems to have finally taken hold, and I’m loving the nicer weather and the chance to get outside and do stuff, especially after work (so nice to have light around again).

    I’ve been eyeing your IR work in Flickr. That’s some pretty sweet stuff!

    Thanks … Noah, I’ll do a writeup of how the equipment and techniques used for the IR photography soon.

    Good to have you back, old chap. Stiff upper lip, and all that…
