Broken pipes, awesome dreams, poor night of sleep, busy day, riding anyway.
This might be all over the place. I’m tired.Last night I was in a deep sleep and having some really crazy dreams. In the dream I recall most clearly my life was like an action movie (tanks, helicopters, speeding cars, guns, repelling down buildings, explosions…), and I was doing all kinds of crazy stunts and generally being completely awesome. Anyway, I woke up from that dream and just could not fall back asleep. I was probably depressed over how boring my life is compared to the dream I was just enjoying.
Anyway, fast forward two hours and I finally began to slumber again. Unfortunately that was just a couple of hours before I had to get up, and so when I woke I was completely out of it. Coffee is helping, but I’m definitely still a bit zonked.
Today is going to be a really busy work day, and I also have to repair three underground sprinkler system water pipes. It’s my fault, too. Over the weekend I was staking one of our Oleander trees (it’s young, and has so many flowers that it can’t support its own weight), and I drove the stake right through one of the pipes. Brilliant. It gets better. Somehow I managed to nail the pipe directly under two other pipes (we have 10 watering zones/10 distribution pipes, and the tree I was staking is right near the main hub where the pipes run close together). So I had to cut sections from the two pipes above the one that I broke to get to the damage. I’m going to try to get that squared away over lunch, but it might have to wait until after work.
Finally, even though I’m tired and have a lot to accomplish today, I’m going riding. I’m not particularly in the mood to ride, but taking some time for exercise always makes things better. I’ll leave you with a germane quote that I quite enjoy:
“I sure wish I hadn’t done that workout!” ~No one, ever.
