You should familiarize yourself with a Fair Labor Standards Act, you shouldn't work more then 40 hrs a week and as the great Robert Owen said, the work day should be divided into thirds which are 8 hrs labor, 8 hrs of recreation and 8 hrs of rest... working over 8hrs a day, you will not accomplish more, because you're tired physically, mentally and your your chances increase x2 of fkng something up in this case yourself...

Feel better and I hope you get some rest

If you were “swingin” – I’m guessing the bruise will be worse than the cut.

And I would add to Greg’s time detail - 2 hours for procreation

Get well Gabe!

Who chops wood any more? Is that a Canada thing? I haven't seen anybody use a axe in years. Here its all chainsaws and your high on the envy ladder if you own a bunch of them.

Meanwhile get well.
