I'm being punished for taking a two-hour nap yesterday, although I don't know why. With the time change last weekend, H. woke up at 5:30am most mornings last week, instead of the usual 6:30am, including a 5:30am wake-up call Sunday morning. So while she was taking her nap yesterday, I took one, too, from about 2pm-4pm. I woke up from that terrific nap with a headache, which seemed to be gone by dinner.

I usually have some trouble falling asleep on Sunday nights, so I stayed up and watched all of the Ravens game (which was worth watching to the end), then went to bed around 11:30am. Well, 1:30am rolled around and I was still wide awake, and the headache had returned. So I got up and took some Excedrin, then lay down on the couch for about an hour, reading. I went back to bed at 2:30am, but still didn't fall asleep until well after 3am!

So I'm paying for my two-hour nap with minus six hours of sleep. I'm looking forward to the dull headache, sandpaper eyes and achy neck I'll be experiencing all day, not to mention the malaise that should set in after lunch. Happy Monday!
