We've been getting some odd sleep patterns lately.

Sunday night Bob had to work from 10:30 to 3:30. So Sunday afternoon he took a nap. He left while I was still awake, so I stayed up later than usual (about 11). Monday we tried to keep quiet so Bob could sleep in. Somehow, between the sush-ing and the videos, I fell asleep on the couch.
I woke Bob up at 9:45 and we went to Cambridge for a Memorial Day ceremony, which meant no naps for the little ones. The children went to bed at their normal time Monday night, and I was asleep on the couch by 9.

Riah and Cedwryck were awake all night. Bob got up twice to turn off their light and tell them to hush. I tossed and turned most of the night, either too hot or too cold.
This morning Bob went to work, and I got up at 6:30. Usually the boys are playing by 6, but today they were still asleep. I had no pity, but pulled the big two out of bed, leaving William to snooze.

William didn't wake up until 8:45 this morning! So he didn't get his nap at 9:30. :-) And here I am, trying to stay awake.

I'm ready to get back to "normal."

Staying with almost 93 year old Mothers can contribute to very odd sleep patterns. I've just returned from a six night stay. I haven't unloaded my car and all I can think about is going to find something to eat or taking a nap. The nap is about to win.jc

A snack is the next best thing to a nap. :-)
