Sleep, Such a Wonderful Thing!

One of the things I'm enjoying the most about being on vacation, and visiting my grandparents, is getting full nights of sleep.  

Ahh.... We can stay up until 10:00 or 11:00pm and I don't have to get up until whenever I want.  I set my alarm for 7:00 and usually get up by 7:30.  If I'm a little extra tired I can even sleep until 8:00.  


A full 8-9 hours of sleep a night means I'm not dragging during the daytime.  When we are up at 6:00am during the school year I hit a slump every afternoon where I am so, so tired -- unless I get to bed at like 9:00/9:30pm.  Since that rarely happens I hit the slump.

Maybe seeing how good it feels to actually power through the day without needing a nap will encourage me to get to bed earlier during the school year. 

Okay...probably not.  So, I will enjoy my full nights of sleep during summer break right now.  :) 


  1. Yikes, I could not function if I had to wake up at 6am! I'm not telling you what time I'm sleeping until on vacation! LOL Enjoy the slower mornings.

  2. By the time all the kids are in bed, I need me time so I never get to bed early enough either!! I really wish we could sleep and wake with the sun. No alarm clocks! Now I'm sleepy.... :)

  3. Sleep makes everything better. Last week when I was at my parents I started staying up later and sleeping later- I enjoyed it!
