It's been said I nap a lot. Okay, it's completely true. I LOVE to sleep! When I was unemployed I would sleep more hours a day than I was actually awake. Maybe that's called depression, but I call it paradise. Most weekends I take naps that last 2-3 hours, easily.
But, now I've got a million and one things to do and really shouldn't be napping. So, I have given up napping for lent. And I have gotten a lot done but here's what I discovered...
I can't sleep at night anymore either.
Giving up napping has completely thrown off my rhythm. I can't fall asleep. I can't stay asleep, and now I've been getting up before 7:00am without an alarm when I don't need to get up until 8:00am most days. And I'm grouchy! Really grouchy! I'm so tired and I can't even keep my eyes closed.
My coworkers thing this it's medically necessary for me to take a nap so I can sleep again. What do you think?
