I don’t know what it is about colder weather that makes me sleepy, but lately, I am in perpetual need of a nap. Of course, it could be that it gets dark at 3 pm. Or it could be the grey rainy days we’ve been having of late.
I sincerely regret all the naps I skipped or pretended to take when I was little. I wish I could have those back. Or I wish I could have rollover nap minutes from all that sleep I missed out on back when. These days, all I need is a comfy chair and I get sleepy. I must be getting old or something.
My favorite days are those where I don’t have to be anywhere super early and I can turn off the alarm and sleep until whenever I feel like waking up. Lately, that tends to be around 9 am, as opposed to sleeping in until noon like I probably did when I was a teenager. But I still love that moment when I wake up at 5 am and realize that it’s Saturday and then promptly roll over and go back to sleep.
So seriously, when does that hibernating thing start? ‘Cause I am all over that.
