To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

sleep cartoon

My friend, Redrokit, sent me this cartoon. Almost every email she gets from me begins with: “well, I slept five hours last night and so am already looking forward to an afternoon nap!”


“I was up at 3 but fell back to sleep at 5 and woke up at 7:30. I think I can push through the day without a nap!” Actually, I don’t think I ever wrote that. I seem to always collapse in the afternoon, even if for only 20 minutes.

But reader. Hand on heart. I actually slept 8 hours last night and I didn’t take a nap today. I worked in my shed steadily and then finished the day with a dog walk and family meal. Huzzah.

I am so very grateful for one day of feeling zippy.

  1. Bette (the Schnauzer) woke me up at 3:30. She heard the rodent in the kitchen. I assume it’s the same rodent that’s been in there for the last three nights. So far it has outwitted me and the best traps I can buy. I assume Pickles sleeps all night, and your new kitty hasn’t discovered any rodents to chase in the middle of the night. You’re living the dream.
