Sleep Is My Hobby

I absolutely LOVE to sleep.  When I was in high school, I would come home from school, take my bath & go straight to bed.  I was an only child w/no one to disturb me.  I would wake up later & complete me homework b4 my Mom came home from work.  My Mom worked hard all week so we would sleep in on Saturdays, uninterrupted.  When I worked (I lived 5 minutes from home), I would rush home to nap during my lunch.  Now that I'm a stay-at-home Mom, I sleep 'til my hearts content or 2:30...when I have to pick up my kids.  My Hubby is a morning person, so he gets the kids up, dressed, fed and to school leaving me to my joy, the bed.

I recently saw Dr. Oz on Oprah and he mentioned that sleep relieves stress in the body & releases the hormone Cortisone.  Sleeping is an inexpensive spa experience.  Sleep on!!!

Hi Redtexan!
I am soo happy to meet you! I sleep 9 - 12 hrs a day too! My boyfriend thinks Im the laziest woman on earth! Sleep relaxes me and puts me in a much better mood, but I struggle with jobs that require me to wake up early in the morning. I try to work jobs that are 2nd or 3rd shifts for this reason.

Me too! I LOVE my sleep. Gotta have my sleep undisturbed. :)

I envy you...

Wow. How much do you sleep on average, per 24h?
