    My mother is a big fan of naps. I only take them when I can no longer stay awake. For me a nap is like an appetizer. It gives me just enough energy to do what must be done before I pass out for a solid night’s sleep. Usually that means getting up and fixing dinner and then heading to bed. Of course the fact that, given the opportunity, I sleep for a solid 10 hours at night, I may just have ruined myself for naps.

      LOL- I think if I didn’t have to be up so early for work I would nap, but I do adore them.

    I can’t take naps–I end up with a headache if I do. It also makes me feel like I’m wasting time, which is silly, I know lol. (Also, Firefly FTW!)

    Nice to meet you, Alica 🙂

      Hi Miho! I use to think that way, until I realized that when I’m tired I don;t get as much done and I’m rather bitchy. LOL

    I love naps—for other people! LOL Sleep/naps never been my strong suit, but I have learned the art of “pretend naps.” I rest with my eyes shut.

      I do that when I can’t keep my eyes open but there are kids about. I’ll put in a movie, and lay on the couch- I can hear everything but rest as well.

    I’m envious! Not so much that your job/schedule permits you naps, but that you *can*! Once I get up, I can’t sleep during the day unless I’m sick. But your job sounds like it can be pretty demanding, so it’s good that you can. I make do like August does. 🙂

      Because my job is broken into morning and afternoon shifts I do need to make sure I’m functional for both and if I’m tired my patience level drops very quickly!

    I usually can’t nap. But today, I slept for almost 4 hours! I was recovering from a long weekend of lots of baseball. I move, but not much.

      Wow- most of my naps don;t last longer then an hour unless I’m sick, you must have needed some serious recovery!

        I participated in a Guinness World Record baseball game that lasted for 49 hours. I played about 18 of those. It’s interesting to get up at 12:30 a.m. and play baseball from 1-3 a.m. Charity event!

    I don’t have time for naps, but sometimes my body simply gives out on me. I don’t move when I sleep either. I lay on my back with my arms crossed like Dracula. LOL I will wake up the same way. I learned to sleep like that when I was pregnant and never went back. They say it is the sign of a good REM sleeper. 😉

      I move a lot at night, but not when I nap- it’s odd. I dream a lot tho- I wonder what would happen if I didn;t move- even more dreams???

    Naps are so refreshing but I rarely take them because I have so many exciting things to do during the day.

    And thanks for sharing the Eurovision songs. You’re getting me excited for this year’s show 😀
