Thanks Bob, but this is actually what I consider one of my easier projects. I feel almost like I’m being lazy lately. I’m almost a week in on this one. Last time I built this clock, I done it in three days.

I think it is looking wonderful! Sometimes it is good to take your time with a project and enjoy the process. I find that I do that more and more. I hope you start to feel a bit better soon and get some sleep when you need to. The clock is amazing and I am sure it will be another masterpiece!

Let me explain the sleep cycle thing.
I only sleep from two to four hours a night. Some nights are worse than others. I do this for sometimes a week at a time. Then after doing this for so long, I’ll get exhausted and crash and sleep for ten to twelve hours straight. While this give me some much needed sleep, it also makes me so stiff that I can hardly move. So I don’t know which is better, hardly any sleep, or too much sleep.
Either way, doctors have tried putting me on sleeping pills to help me sleep seven to eight hours a night. They do work. They present another problem though that I’m not willing to deal with. If I sleep that much every night, then I’m sore every day. So I have leanred to live with the crazy sleep cycles.
So when you see me say I didn’t get much sleep (I got about one hour night before last), the lack of sleep doesn’t bother me much, but it does slow me down (such as yesterday). I’d rather run on very little sleep than to sleep too long and be sore all day. It’s just one of those things that I live with because of my health problems.
Now if I could just invent the right kind of coffee I wouldn’t need to sleep at all. I would just probably be jittery all the time.
Naw! That couldn’t be a side effect. Could it?
