This is very much a "Kristin" story. Two Fridays ago, I came home right after work and had a few things I needed to get done that night. Instead, I laid down on my couch and fell asleep. When I woke up it was dark. I looked at my watch and it was 11 PM - I fell asleep at 5! That was one heck of a nap! But it was 11, so what was I supposed to do? I put my pajamas on, and went to bed. I fell aslep around midnight and slept until 7. It was incredible. That was 13 hours of sleep, and because I got up so early on Saturday I was super productive. By 10:30, I had done 3 loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen, made a yummy breakfast, watched some Jon & Kate plus 8 and College GameDay, and packed for my weekend in cities. It was amazing. I felt so rested, but usually that only happens on days I sleep in, and then I feel a little guilty because so much of the day gets away from me.
I've since decided that I should do this every week - the problem being that it requires me to go to bed at 5 PM on a Friday night. I don't think that's realistic. And it won't happen tonight considering that I have registration for 140 middle schoolers from 7 to 8. Maybe next week.
