You are Feeling Very, Very Sleepy...

It has been a whirlwind of awesomeness over here lately. I have been so busy with blog-related stuff that I can barely keep up. I spent most of the weekend taking and editing pictures and working on posts for my blog and guest posts for other blogs. This was one of my goals for 2012, and I am so thrilled! It reminds me of when I was in graduate school and I always had papers to write and articles to read, except that was torturous and blogging is amazingly fun. My mind is currently racing with what I'm doing and what I need to do.



I am so thankful for all the opportunities I have going on right now, but boy am I tired. I still think I am sleep-deprived from Sean's stint as a newborn, so I try to justify my naps by saying I'm catching up for lost time! Every afternoon about 3 o' clock, I hit a wall of tired. I just want to curl up in the bed and nap. But I don't do "power naps"; in fact, the very idea is insulting to me. Who wants to take a 15 minute nap? What's the point?


I want to curl up under the covers and warm and cuddly and SLEEP. For hours. Yes, I wake up feeling like crap, but that's so not the point. the point is sleeping in the middle of the day is so decadent that it is impossible for me to avoid. At the same time, sometimes I absolutely MUST take a nap or I know I will not make it through the rest of the day. It's not something I'm proud of, but sometimes I'm just so tired that I can't see straight. Part of this is health-related, but I also know part of it is laziness.


Full disclosure: I did stop writing this to go take a nap. Oops!

Do power naps really work? I can't stand to barely get to sleep and have to jump up again, so not worth my time. Now to snuggle in and take a long nap is great until I have to get up and feel blah. Yep, once again, something we have in common!

Some people swear by them, but for me they are the biggest tease ever! I do hate how I feel after napping, but I love waking up and realizing it's not the middle of the night... does that make sense?
