I am beginning to think that making the majority of my Christmas gifts was not such a brilliant idea after all. But, as I near the end of my gift giving list I can see the light at the end of my crafting tunnel. For a while there it seemed as if it had burned out. Then I realized it wasn’t the tunnel lamp that was burned out but me. To re-light it I have been taking naps. Naps are something I usually cannot do because I lie in bed thinking too much and then get up and just do it. This past week, though, I could get an Olympic medal for napping.
On Tuesday, I came home from work, straightened the house, made dinner and then around 6 at night decided I needed a nap. I woke up when the alarm beeped at 5:30 a.m. the next morning. Technically that was probably not a nap but it sure felt good. The next night I worked on some of my crafting projects and then sat in my easy chair and ‘dipped under’ for about an hour. Wow, two naps in two days. Who is this woman? Thursday, while sitting on the couch I rested my eyes. Since I didn’t look at the clock before I rested them, I am not sure how long they rested that night. Saturday, I decided to lie down for a while in the afternoon, 3 hours later I wondered what had happened.
Napping during the day is different from sleeping at night. During the day when you sleep you actually miss something. While napping, people have called and I missed talking with them. People posted on their blogs but I wasn’t on my computer to read them. Christmas decorating and baking did not get done but I must admit I am not too upset about that.
I am currently obsessing on finishing my last few Christmas gifts which I plan to do…right after I take a nap.
