I used to love to take naps.
As a teenager, in college, on Sundays...during the week, when my own babies were napping...or when they were watching Blue's Clues and the Wonder Pets and sitting in the "nest" of my legs...or even when they were off at school and it was rainy and I was bored, or sad....
Naps were great.
And now, I'm old. And...I really can't take naps any more. Maybe it is all this exercise? Actually it started before I started shaping up. If I nap during the day, I don't sleep at night. It's terrible...on so many levels.
But today...er, yesterday afternoon, I had to sleep. I was exhausted. I was nursing a 3 day headache...and tired. And unmotivated.
So...now...2:06 am...I'm still awake. Bored...and very awake.
But the nap was pretty good... aside from a few kids popping in to ask permission to play on the computer or to go to a friend's home. And soon enough I"ll probably be REALLY old...and taking cat naps throughout the day and night. But hopefully that won't be for another 20 years or so.
If my knees hold up that long!
