Nappy hour.

I'm a champion sleeper, I can sleep and sleep some more.  Then I'll usually sleep again shortly thereafter.  I'll sleep at night, I'll sleep during the day, it doesn't matter what time it is, I will have no problem going to sleep.  In fact a client at work once asked me when I am happiest and I responded, "When I'm asleep". 

I love naps.  I sleep so long during a nap that I'm often more tired than I should be when I wake up, but I also struggle to nap for short periods of time.  Usually it's between two and three hours.  And I also usually don't have any trouble falling asleep that same night.  I like to nap on my giant couch, but have no problem napping in bed either.      

Often times on my days off I'll take a nap, not because I'm tired, but simply because I can.  A few weeks ago on one of my days off, I took two naps.  I remember that day, it was a good one.  I had woken up early for me, probably like 9:00am or so, and by 11:00, I was feeling tired and took my first nap of the day for about an hour and a half.  When I woke up, I did a few errands and then found myself quite sleepy again in the afternoon.  That's when I took my second nap, this one lasting just over an hour.  What a fantastic day.  I hope to have more two-nap days in the future.  One is great, but two is like nap time heaven.  Next day off maybe I'll shoot for three naps.  Wow, I just blew my own mind with that, I'm feeling sleepy from all this brain work.  Looks like it's time for a nine hour nighttime nap.
