Can't Sleep
« on: November 12, 2011, 03:37:35 AM »
Anybody else  ::) ? Worked till dark on getting my last veneer walnut and white oak cut and skidded to the edge of a gravel lane. I feel very lucky to compleate that order with the crazy weather we have had this fall. Was bone tired and chilled to the bone so after supper I feel asleep in my chair, went to bed at nine thirty now Iam wide awake bummer  ;D

I'm on my second night of no sleep here. I'm in a house with no heat but the fireplace and it's below freezing and really windy here.

Just think of how good it will feel to go to sleep tonight!  ;D

I'm switching my sleep around, going from being up from midnight to noon to getting back into a normal routine. It's always easier to get back to normal rather than get used to the mid to noon schedule.

Radar67 would be at my place at about 6AM yesterday.  I would have breakfast ready, so 5:00 would be about right.  I woke up, "one eyed" my watch and got up.  Yup, I had gotten up at 4:00.   :-\

 Crazy this many guys can't sleep, must be the full moon  ;D. Tom I know what you mean about not being able to shut your brain off some nights. Dave you need to buy yourself a Honda generator to run your furnace. Are you still out from that snow storm. Hope everyone has a great day Bil

We never lost power from that storm. I'm on Nantucket in an almost there three hundred year old house. The place warms up ok when the sun hits it, but it hasn't stopped blowing since we got here, and it really cools off at night.

Ive been the same way for a while .  A million things going on at work like keeping  that junk running.      We ve got a  new baby  comming in january and  gonna have alot of problems with family  amplified  by that arrival.    Then stack the future mill purchase on top of that.   

Its gotten to where I wake up  about 1 am and then go into a coma that I cant even hear the alarm at 4:30.     If I wake up like that I usually make myself  stay up till time to leave for work.
