I go through spurts of wanting to take a nap every afternoon and then it may be months that I don’t take a nap. I seem to be in that “I need a nap everyday” mode now.
But, here’s what I’m wondering . . why is it that I feel guilty when I take a nap but yet Vince sits in his chair and snoozes several times a day and it doesn’t bother him one bit? It’s that same thing that he doesn’t mind sitting and watching TV while I’m in the kitchen for hours, or trying to cook and hang the clothes out of the dryer and take the dogs out and . . oops, there’s Cat. I need to go out and feed him. Yet, if I’m sitting and knitting and Vince gets up to go do something, I feel like I need to get up and help. It doesn’t bother him to sit while I’m working and he doesn’t care if I’m sitting while he’s working . . but it bothers me.
Is that personality? Mars vs. Venus? Do you feel the same way I feel?
Yesterday after Vince went back to work, I thought . . I have to take a nap so I did. I probably went to sleep about 1:15 p.m. and woke up about 2:30 and thought . . I’m not done sleeping yet, but decided I should get up. Sure enough . . I hadn’t been up 10 minutes and Vince walked in. He had to run home and get something. I was thinking it was a good thing I had not gone back to sleep. He wouldn’t care that I was napping . . it just makes me feel like a slacker.
Today Vince wasn’t coming home for lunch. I was up pretty early this morning and was thinking I might take an early afternoon nap but I knew as soon as I did, Vince would change his lunch plans and come home for lunch and I’ll be sleeping!
I didn’t take a nap. He didn’t come home. All is well, but the afternoon isn’t over yet. There’s still time for a nap, but then Vince might come home early and find me sleeping. 🙂
