The Art to Napping!

I have not learned the art to napping.  I haven't been able to nap since I was a very small child and forced to take a nap.  At my worst with thee chemo and all I fell asleep all the time, but mostly while sitting upright attempting to read or watch television.  Bed to me has always been the end of the day, tired, go to sleep until I wake up kind of thing.  In my recovery of this chemo, in the process of healing and oh so slowly getting stronger. this is creating some problems for me.  I am "turning the day around".
   It is now 2:30 A.M. and I am wide awake!  Yesterday was a pretty good day although not perfect.  I made a slight (I hope) mistake in an installation art piece that I made and will have to correct today, so there was a little stress there.  But I got other things done and on another job did a perfect installation.  I am working again and so very thankful.
   My problem is at the end of the day I am extremely tired.  So I go to bed!  I sleep well and have no problem falling asleep.  From 5 P.M. until 2 A.M. is NINE hours sleep, and that is what I did.  If I start grinding and welding in my shop my neighbors would kill me!  I would lose all sympathy immediately!
These are really quiet hours and I have grown to enjoy them, even my dog prefers to sleep.  I have taken up reading again, an activity I had abandoned while in years of construction.  A friend I went to High School is a very successful author and I began by reading all seven of her books!  That was fun!  and now I am in the process of reading and in some cases rereading books from my own vast library.
     I like turning the pages.  I like the slight "old library smell" to them.
