Not So Hot Topic

I could talk about the weather. We got us some weather. Y’all may have heard, it was all over the news. It’s cold, windy and snowy. So what? It’s Janaury February, in Chicago (area), we know the drill, or should. I know, I know, I had a moment about the folks who don’t clear their walkways properly. There was even more snow this cycle around so the issue was, well, more. But, I’m over that. I’ll deal. I always have. I always will, so long as I live here, anyway.

Which brings the question, would/will I ever leave here?

Another day, perhaps, I’ll explore this question. Today, let’s talk about naps.

You’ve read the research, heard the reports, perhaps even know from first-hand experience, the power of naps.

I don’t take naps during my work week days. I would if I could. I wake most work mornings between 5:15 and 5:45, this, after logging into sleep for the night between 1:00 – 2:00 am. I start to feel it around 11 a.m. The hours between 11 – 2 are particularly tiring. I try to staunch the weariness by taking a walk and eating something sensible (usually, hopefully). My night-time sleep issues aside however, I believe a nap, even of the power variety, would prove energizing.




Now, granted I need to figure out a way to sleep better, longer at night. But, I also need to figure out a way to get the company to buy this chair and to have in placed in my space.

Sweet dreams.


  1. Hey,when you figure out this great "Sleep Mystery" will you PLEASE let me know the secret? It seems as if you and I are on almost the EXACT same sleep frequency!!! I sometimes need toothpicks to keep my eyes open in class.

    Love the chair. I could see that right now in my "Living-Room Apartment", LOL!

  2. I hear ya on the "nap" thing. Personally, if it were up to me, the work day would begin at 6 a.m., and end 2 or 2:30.

    I'm not a napper, per se, but an hour to just -- leave it all, mid-day, would be appreciated. Lunch hour, where I work, is this semi-political thing -- the lunch room gatherings are work.

  3. I tried to get that chair for work and the boss ended up taking it. Drat.

  4. let me know how that works out for ya!


Hi! Your visit is much appreciated.
