Today I took a nap for the first time in years. It has to be because I am sick.
Even when I know I should take a nap because I am going to have a late night, I am unable to fall asleep during the day. This is especially pertinent over the summer with the Friday night parades at Marine Barracks, Washington D.C. We work early in the morning, take the afternoon off, and come back in the evening. I usually end up getting home around 11:30 P.M., which is extremely late for someone who normally goes to bed between 9 P.M. and 9:30 P.M.
Now I just wish that RJ would start taking a nap during the day. He has not taken a nap during the day since he was a couple of months old. He is full of energy until he goes to bed, but his disposition leaves a lot to be desired.
And also on the nap front, Beth should be able to get her nap time in, although she usually opts to do other things when she could be sleeping. There have been many times I knew that she was tired, but she would not go to bed. Now all we have to do is get our sleep schedules back together (they have been out of kilter since Tony was born) and everything should be back to normal.
