    after school. I get home from the bus around 3:00pm everyday then I eat a snack and will get on my phone and hang with my step dad or whatever. When it hits 4 I'll take my nap, I always tell my self I just sleep 30 min but I always end up sleeping until 5:30 or 6. I don't know...

    I've started having naps

    after 2 long years of raising my toddler.. I have to say I missed them so, wouldn't change a thing but God I appreciate those minutes of REM more than ever

    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...

    Lassitude

     I imagine the weight of my body pressing down into the earth, and the heat caresses my skin.   I love the sunlight slanting across my eyes.  The brightness turns my eyelids a carnal red-orange.

    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.

    This Afternoon In Particular, But Any Afternoon Would Do

    I'm at my desk, at work, and there is a pile of crap to get through.  I decided, naturally, to take an EP break, but a nice hour-long nap would be much better.  Plus, then it would be 4pm and I'd only have an hour to go! Turn the light off as you leave, ok?

    Naps Get a Bad Rap

    I feel guilty for enjoying naps. I feel lazy. I mean what a huge time waster! There are so many other things I need to be doing! Sometimes I am just dog tired and need a nap. I may be tired because I stayed up too late but more often it is for no apparent reason...

    After working hard all morning it feels

    wonderful to lie down and rest. Drifting off to better places in my mind.

    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?

    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.

    As I get older, I want to sleep more.

    But with my stepfather around, he keeps me awake and that is why I am quite grumpy in the weekends.

    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.

    Especially On Rainy Days....

    I love taking afternoon naps.  I find them refreshing and sometimes this may be the only sleep I will achieve during a week.  I especially love sleeping away a rainy afternoon.
