I have this romantic vision of a perfect day spent in bed, reading and dozing off whenever I become sleepy. Probably sipping tea and snacking too. Sounds divine, doesn't it? But whenever the opportunity presents itself to have such a day, I never actually do it.
See, I'm a non-napper.
I'd love to be a napper, but napping doesn't love me. I wake up groggy and cranky and have a brain fog for the rest of the day. (A full nighttime sleep seems to reset everything.)
My mother is a napper. Mr Bailey is a napper. My dogs are SERIOUS nappers. So why doesn't it work for me? If I do lie on a bed to read during the day and my eyelids become heavy, I have to fight it and jump out of bed to wake up again.
My new foster dog, Harry -- the one Napping With Abandon in these photos -- takes napping to a whole new level. He loves nothing more than to be on a couch, having a little sleep. He's not fond of nature, he'd rather stay right where he is, thank you very much. And I have to say I'm rather envious.
Am I alone in this -- does everyone else love to sneak in a nap whenever they have a chance? Has anyone been a non-napper and worked out a way to successfully do it?
I'd love to hear your thoughts -- especially because it's a freezing cold day here and I have a good book I could snuggle under the covers with if I could fix this!
