I agree, a break in the action is likely to be exactly what you need.

I would also consider implementing a near-real world application for this stuff. So far, it looks like a lot of theoretical stuff to me. Kind of a solution in search of a problem. Try applying it to something that might be actually used. I missed that part if you have done so already. I find that one's initial implementation of lower level things often need adjustment when they are applied in an implementation so try to really work with it and see what shakes out. This could be something like a little scripting language or an assembler for some CPU or who knows what else? For something a little different, you could try your hand at even lower level code generation - assembler and/or machine. I wrote a machine code generator for my own script language and that was a ton of fun. Debugging it was quite an experience and then adapting all of that for my own custom debugger was off the charts fun.

That's all more code stuff so I think it would be best to first put down the mouse and take two steps back. Then turn around, walk/run away from the computer, and do something else.
