Fatigue and Woodworking
I've had a real busy weekend. I tore down an old shed in preparation for a new addition that is being built onto my house. I also knocked off all the siding on the rear of the house, got the foot high windrow of gravel the snowplow plowed onto my lawn cleaned up, and even graded the driveway and got my rock walls mended after the frost heaved them in sections. That was just Friday. On Saturday I installed a new front door.
So today I planned to finish up the door by putting the trim on the inside. Things did not go so well. I kept screwing up the cuts, making mistake after mistake. This is bigger for me because I use rough sawn lumber, so a cut only occurs AFTER the boards are rough cut, ripped, jointed and planned. Thats a lot of work for a dumb mistake. Finally I left the shop, the door trim and did nothing for the rest of the afternoon. I even fell asleep for awhile while the infant was napping.
Does anyone know of some vitamins or something that will cure fatigue? I enjoyed the afternoon off, but I got a ton of stuff to do and just can't take the time off. I heard Bee Pollen pills staves off fatigue. Has anyone tried that?

I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
