I take a nap almost every day. I have to. I can’t help it. I can’t stay awake. If I force myself I end up talking gibberish, doing things backwards and making an utter mess of my life and my family’s too.
While we were away this past week on vacation at Disney World, I really had to nap. I used my scooter to get around the parks but I still got so tired I had to sleep or I wouldn’t have been able to go out in the evenings.
My good friends came for the day with their three children and a baby that my friend babysits. We went to the Magic Kingdom for part of the day. We were there for a few hours when I started getting that melt down feeling. I didn’t want to ruin their day but I knew I wasn’t going to make it much longer. When I told them it was fine because they all wanted to go swimming at the hotel pool.
Back at the room I feel asleep on a small love seat. I was so uncomfortable, but I was so tired it didn’t matter. I could have fallen asleep in one of the baby cribs I’ve seen in the hotel rooms.
No one could believe that I slept through everyone coming back from the pool, children crying about not wanting to leave, packing up and all kinds of noise. But I did and I’m pretty proud of it
