It's Hard To Beat A Good Nap

Since I’m always mentally on vacation, I decided to play hooky and skip work for the rest of the week.

So after lunch I packed up, signed off the laptop and meandered home doing a few errands on the way.

Now let me point out something to the kids out there… not try this at home yourself. I am a trained professional.

I am self employed and can basically call my own shots when it comes to work hours. As long as someone is back to cover the phone then I am okay.

The ultimate goal was to get home by 3:00 PM and catch a nap.

Oh how I love naps but rarely get to take one anymore.

Back a few years ago I had to take a medication for epilepsy that constantly made me sleepy. I took a nap almost daily. I had to or I couldn’t make it through the day.

Now however I can make it through the day fine on the new medication and a nap is strictly a recreational treat.

So at the appointed time Gigi, the dogs Peaches, Cedie and Haley head to the bedroom, pull the shades and take a nap.

As I fall asleep, in the back of my mind I am thinking about a tee time I have in the morning at 8:00 AM. This is an early tee time for me. I usually play in the afternoon but it is too damn hot to play in the heat of the day.

I’ll have to get up at 6:00 AM, grab a bite, take a shower, and hit the practice range and then…….ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

I woke up at 4:20 and didn’t know what day it was. Oh crap! Did I over sleep? I missed my tee time!

Calm takes the place of panic when I realize it was only a nap. A darn good one at that I might add.
