The only thing I can say about being sick for three weeks is that I have been totally grooving on taking a nap each day. I am not sure that there is much that feels better to my middle age body than to lie down in the middle of the day, pull up the covers and turn off the world for at least a little bit. In fact I have quite possibly become a nap-junkie and will sing it's praises from the highest stack of PosturePedic mattresses I can find.

My kids are even getting use to this quite time and my littlest guy often comes up and snuggles up with me and "rests his eyes". He is still young enough that to actually admit it might be a nap would be a betrayal to the ranks of the other 6 year olds in the world. So we just "rest our eyes" and if we happen to snore like a freight train during this eye-resting it's nothing we are going to talk about.

So dear friends, try a nap today, it's your right.. and the world is a better place for each nap we take!

Hey Maddie -

I bought my gocco a few years back when they used to sell them at Blick art stores. The Paper Source is carrying the larger size gocco now, but they never seem to have any on their website. Hope this helps~ those little buggers are hard to find.

Girl, I take a nap EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE. If I don't get one in, the family knows to leave mama alone. Way alone. Love the napping. I mean, er, "eye resting"!

awwwww, this kitty is to die for!

when you nap, i recommend cuddling up with a cat or dog on your feet; they'll keep you warm and make any stretch of sleep much nicer.
