Ready for the weekend

I don't know if I'm just getting older or what, but my body is needing more and more sleep lately. I've always been able to go on just a few hours of sleep a night, since my college days and before. But I think that had always been possible because I was also able to take naps in those days. Grownup life isn't so conducive to nap taking.

I've definitely been searching for nap opportunities, though. Any chance I get, I doze off. I'll leave early for work to beat the traffic, and then take a 12 minute nap in my car before I leave the parking garage. I'll even rush lunch so I can sneak into somebody's office and take a 45 minute nap before I have to return to my desk. It's getting bad, guys.

Maybe it's the getting up so early (so early!) to work out, or maybe it's the working out itself, or maybe I am just getting old. (I refuse to believe that.) I'm confident that the late nights past midnight contribute to the problem. But that's new. Not the late nights, but them being a problem problem. Since when do I have to be in bed in the PM instead of the AM?

Whatever the deal is, I feel a lot like Chester looks in that picture. Tuckered out. Regardless of whether or not I have the self control to institute a reasonable bedtime, I'm definitely ready for the weekend. I can't wait to sleep past noon tomorrow. Ahhh... Just the thought of it is nice...

How much sleep does your body require? What time do you usually go to bed at night? And more importantly, do you have any awesome plans this weekend, other than sleeping?

PS. How stinking adorable is our dog? Laying his head on a pillow like a person. I absolutely love him.
