In the physical realm, changes indeed, but definitely not as positive. I have now joined Rob on the injured list. Yup, he's been working through a partially torn rotator cuff and a bone spur for a few months now (both made somewhat manageable for a short while with cortisone) and I now have a blown out (up?) knee. I'm currently elevated, iced, and braced,(the swelling is coming down and I can now bend it slightly!) but will be doing follow-up with the orthopedic to determine long term fixes. In the short term, like Rob, I'll have to get back to work after I baby it through this episode.
So, letting go of perfection was timely and, coincidentally, came just before this injury that will cost me valuable work time. Despite the fact that I got precious little accomplished this weekend due to the injury, Rob's been an utter, non-perfect machine. Here's a few photos of recent progress:
