Today is the last day off I have of my holidays. I have not been at work since December 24th.
I had 30 hours of holiday time to use up and it couldn't have come at a better time.
As many of you know I have trouble sleeping and had recently reached the breaking point for lack of sleep. I am not upset or stressed about anything. I just can't sleep through the night.
We were busy through the holidays and I had lots to do. I was running on auto-pilot for most of it.
Then it happened. I slept. I slept through the night on December 28th. Then I had a nap on the 29th mid morning. Then I had another nap in the afternoon.
Bedtime came and I slept again right through the night again only getting up to use the bathroom and then falling right back to sleep.
I was not sick. I just slept. I relaxed and lounged around. I spent a day in my pajamas. I was more rested than if I had gone away on a holiday somewhere exotic. My batteries have recharged
I go back to work tomorrow and will be back in a routine during the daylight hours. Let's hope this new nighttime routine will continue also.
And no I won't be napping at my desk.
