Itís a good thing the days are getting longer. Right now, in the bleak midwinter, if you decide to take a nap in the afternoon, youíre liable to wake up in the dark. Thatís what happened to me today, except that I didnít exactly ďdecide.Ē I was reading, and my eyes were getting heavy, so I decided to close them for a little while. The rest was out of my hands.
This was one of only two days out of the whole week that I have daylong access to the Internet, so youíd think Iíd take advantage. But Iíve found it no easier to sit at the computer on the weekend with a browser than it is to sit there on a weekday with a spreadsheet. Doing too much of one thing at one time, even one thing I enjoy, is still too much.
Still, I donít count this as a wasted day, by any means. It wasnít as if I was missing anything more important than getting caught up on sleep, after all. Or even partially caught up.
