Can't sleep...universe will eat me!

So I’m still awake after only 2 or so hours of sleep last night due to the storm and our daughter and a number of other things.

My body is currently in the state I call “failover” which means that it’s being stubborn and won’t relax because it thinks it needs to be awake and will run until I just collapse later this afternoon. It’s kind of like when a notebook is on battery but the system thinks there’s only 1% remaining when there’s actually 10% remaining so it just runs on in this failed state until the battery dies because it doesn’t know how to handle the situation. Yeah, kind of like that.

Needless to say with only a couple hours of sleep I don’t trust myself behind the wheel of an automobile let alone on the bike. Thus I didn’t go to work today. That sucks because I have a lot of stuff to do there as well.

I hate it when my body does this sort of crap. B-(

So I’ve tried to tire myself out. I’ve been answering e-mails, did the dishes, mowed the law, trimmed the lawn, sorted and folded clothes, and opened all the windows so the house could air out.

I’m finally feeling sleepy again so I’ll probably doze off here very soon. The fresh air is helping a bit.

Bought the carburetor for my 024 on E-Bay today but it is coming via UPS ground so it could take up to 6 days to get to me from PA. I still have to pick up the fuel lines tomorrow so I can get those replaced this weekend. I also need to do an oil and filter change on the truck today to see if that helps with the low oil pressure problem I’ve been having the last week or so. I can’t remember when I last changed the filter so it’s very likely clogged.

Oh. Wonderful. The local tree shredder is parked out front of the house. Well I’m glad I’ve got earplugs. :-|

Well I think I’ll _try_ and get some sleep now. The body seems worn out enough but I just don’t know...
