Today was a grown-up Monday. Grown-up meaning that I got up before I would ever want to and didn’t take a nap. (AND it was even cloudy out)
If you know me, you know that this is unheard of. I am a second-semester senior, enjoying my easy class-load. If I didn’t nap regularly, I would completely be disrespecting the sanctity of college-life (senior college-life at that).
But today, a Monday no-less, I came back from my super early volunteer placement fully planning on crawling right back into bed and didn’t. Ok well I eventually did get into bed (heat is expensive and my covers are warm), and I DEFINITELY changed back into pajama pants, but I did not nap.
I thought about napping, planned on it even. But there I was typing away at a blog post, checking facebook, reading my google reader, updating the Apothecary’s facebook, and checking emails when all of a sudden it was 1:40. Time to walk with Danny to work so we can squeeze in some time together between his 50+ hour work weeks (+another 20 hours of school) and my school+work+volunteer placement schedule. Yikes! Believe me, I was more than a little sad that time had not gone slowly enough for me to squeeze in a nap and I knew I would pay for it later.
The above italicized was written pre-1:40 monday when I realized I wasn’t going to be able to get my regular early-morning nap. I started writing with plans to upload the post later Monday night, and I was all jazzed up and planning to be productive for the rest of the day. But then this happened…It started raining. RAINING. And I drove, not walked, Danny to work. Not to mention my nose was still stuffy and my taste buds were still on vacation due to my cold which meant having a tasty lunch was out of the question. All of a sudden everything seemed to align to the fact that there was no way I was avoiding a nap.
So…maybe my Monday didn’t end up being so grown-up. (See the question mark in the post title?…That wasn’t there originally) But maybe I can get half-credit.
I leave you with this question…Why ever say no to a nap when it presents itself ever so nicely to you?
