    I try to take a nap either on Saturday afternoon

    or Sunday afternoon. Sometimes I use my husband as a pillow. He doesn't mind it though.

    There's nothing better

    than coming home from work or school early and crashing out for an hour or two.

    Right after school naps are the best.

    Pretty soon I'm going to be napping during the day since I will be having night classes.

    Lol me and one of my cats are 'nap buddies'.

    This afternoon, I went and lay on my bed beside him, but he jumped off. When I said, "Fine I don't need you anyway." Jokingly, he came running back into my arms! We had a lovely long sleep.

    Well as I am someone

    that loves to stay up late into the night an afternoon nap is a required daily part of my life :P I can occasionally skip out on them but without them I'd be missing way way too much sleep :P Plus when you wake up in the afternoon you feel so relaxed after that stretch :P

    In Winter, The weather is perfect

    where I am. Cold snap in the air but the sunshine is there, warm and lulling. For me the obvious thing to do is enjoy that sunshine and spend many fine Winter afternoons napping in the sun.

    I miss the certainty, and the consistency, and the afternoon naps together, and having someone to just sit around and do nothing with.
