Do you take naps? If you do, are they catnaps or full-on drool fests?
I take a lot of naps. A lot of catnaps. I've become quite proficient at the 20-minute sleep. If I have spare time during my lunch hour? Catnap. (relax...not at my desk!) If I'm home with the baby on the weekends and she's napping? Catnap. If I get to take a bath at night? Catnap. If the alarm goes off, but it's still kind of early, and the baby isn't up yet? Catnap. (I like to call this catnapping, not hitting the snooze button.) If we're driving somewhere and the baby is asleep in the car seat? Catnap. (only when I'm being chauffeured, of course)
What would really feel good, however, would be to give myself over to the snore and nap for a good three, four hours...at least. I can imagine crawling into the bed, with the cool sheets, windows wide open, and a silent house. My house would have to be emptied of all life. Ever since K's birth, every little thing wakes me up: the sound of the refrigerator door closing, the click of the back door, the sound of someone turning the bathroom light on, the pantry door opening, B breathing too loudly, the cats dreaming...you get the idea.
I think I just accidentally fell asleep for a second, thinking about those cool, aqua-colored sheets....
