I am afraid not. I have yet to go to bed. I just took an apple pie out of the oven and now I have to clean the kitchen and then make brownies. All of this is for my daughter.

I will crash about two this afternoon until seven, then again at eleven 'til about three a.m. Short naps for me. I get more done that way. I will clean the kitchen this morning, and then the big room tonight while I watch The Wheel and Jeopardy. Also the World Series is on and of course I have to watch The Red Sox win! Go Red Sox!

When I worked at Stone and Webster, around 3 o'clock I would feign cramps and go into a stall in the bathroom. I would stay there for about 15 minutes taking a nap. Did wonders for me. I was able to make it to five o'clock.

Sleeping twice per night seems to be the way most Westerners did for a very long time. Nifty article about that here: Your Ancestors Didnít Sleep Like You

You can sleep this evening Addie. No Cards/Sox game since they travel to St. Louis today.

Didn't look at that article yet taxy, but are they calling it "Second Sleep"? Ran across that term when I was having long awake states during the night. I've never been a Straight-Eight kind of sleeper ever.
