Naps

IMG_8773.JPG

Sometimes an afternoon nap is exactly what you need, at least I do. I know there are some people out there who can’t nap, but I love them. I used to come home each afternoon, snuggle with HRH, and, many days, take a thirty minute to an hour nap before it was time to start cooking supper. I haven’t napped much in the last week or so because she hasn’t been here demanding that I be still.

Last night I came to my room after supper, and I laid down. It had been quite an exhausting day. So I laid down, quite similar to the picture above (I did peruse a little porn), and tried to “cat” nap. I just couldn’t. I knew I didn’t want to nap long because I wanted to watch the new NCIS: New Orleans. However, sleep never came, so I got up and went and watched NCIS, which I never do, and waited for NCIS: New Orleans to come on. It wasn’t too bad, and I will give it a shot and at least watch a few episodes of it. I always love seeing New Orleans, though I’d rather be there in person.

Naps are not a luxury I have right now. I hope I will be able to nap again soon. At some point things will have to slow down, and I will have tog,et used to not snuggling with HRH. I usually sleep better at night, if I’ve had a nap, and it certainly helps by making it easier to wake up the next morning and start a new day, though a shower and coffee also does wonders for that.

By the way, I know this post is kind of random, but does this week feel like it is going by incredibly slowly. I kept thinking all day yesterday that it was Thursday. I was so sad when I realized that it was only Tuesday.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
