    After working hard all morning it feels

    I love sleep:) I remember

    when I was little and I used to wet the bed... Those were the good days, not having to get up at night! XD

    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.

    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 love taking naps but unfortunately I think

    taking naps gives me nightmares when I go to sleep later on that night, any thoughts on this? Does it sound like it's normal?

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

    I both love and hate my naps,

    it's a everyday thing.I often fall asleep after school when I get home.Most often because I don't have something to do.All the things I enjoyed doing just make me sad because I don't have the motivation or just think it's boring and a waste of time.All I do is reading about...

    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.

    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.

    I nap all the time. I love sleeping

    and dreams. Dreams are so peaceful, like when you have a random sword fight and kick someone's butt, but are still so not phased by it. I once dreamed I was covered in cats. It was so warm and I was covered in soft fur. I love cat naps.
