A thin line between nap and sleep

Cat Nap Anyone

Cat Nap Anyone, originally uploaded by Arkansas ShutterBug.

I’m about to attempt something dangerous: I’m going to try to take a nap at 7:30 in the evening.

No, it’s not life-threatening dangerous, but it is to-do-list dangerous.

If all goes well, I will sleep for 45 minutes and awaken, refreshed, to tackle bills and some work tasks that I couldn’t get to day.

If trouble hits, I will sleep for 4 hours and arise, groggy and grumpy, to stare glumly at my computer screen for an hour before giving up and going back to bed.

I’ll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck.

UPDATE at 9:04pm: Awake, a little refreshed, a little grumpy. Fortunately, that picture of a sleeping cat is cute enough to cheer me up. I can haz naptime?
