Sometimes an afternoon nap is exactly what you need, at least I do. I know there are some people out there who can't nap, but I love them. I used to come home each afternoon, snuggle with HRH, and, many days, take a thirty minute to an hour nap before it was time to start cooking supper. I haven't napped much in the last week or so because she hasn't been here demanding that I be still.
Last night I came to my room after supper, and I laid down. It had been quite an exhausting day. So I laid down, quite similar to the picture above (I did peruse a little porn), and tried to "cat" nap. I just couldn't. I knew I didn't want to nap long because I wanted to watch the new NCIS: New Orleans. However, sleep never came, so I got up and went and watched NCIS, which I never do, and waited for NCIS: New Orleans to come on. It wasn't too bad, and I will give it a shot and at least watch a few episodes of it. I always love seeing New Orleans, though I'd rather be there in person.
Naps are not a luxury I have right now. I hope I will be able to nap again soon. At some point things will have to slow down, and I will have tog,et used to not snuggling with HRH. I usually sleep better at night, if I've had a nap, and it certainly helps by making it easier to wake up the next morning and start a new day, though a shower and coffee also does wonders for that.
By the way, I know this post is kind of random, but does this week feel like it is going by incredibly slowly. I kept thinking all day yesterday that it was Thursday. I was so sad when I realized that it was only Tuesday.
