naps are a good thing.

from me:

spent (literally) 5.5 hrs sitting in the visa waiting room yesterday. as people who came after us left quickly. as people who came before us left to get food and come back, having already waited 6 hrs. That said, we had a rather successful meeting with our agent that began after closing hours … our agent + us, we were literally the last 3 people there. celebrated that – and Mr. B’s one year soberversary – with chocolate cake.

This morning, just woke after 11.5 hrs sleep!

thus begins a rather low stress day, including stew, high hydration bread, and perhaps another nap… I will also catch up on my sober emails today. between naps. 🙂 all is well.


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Glad the meeting went well–despite the wait. Yeah for Mr. B and yeah for chocolate cake 🙂 Still waking up after my hour a.m. nap–ahhhhhh. I’ll call it my 300 day treat. 🙂

  • Glad the meeting went well. Enjoy the low-stress day. Well-deserved—especially after that waiting room marathon. Happy one year to Mr. B.!

  • Sleep is amazing….. Naps are the best. I always napped in my college days- stupid 9-5 desk job gets in my way now, enjoy!

  • Naps rank as the highest form of recovery coping for me. I use naps to disconnect from situations that overwhelm or try my patience to an extreme; naps recharge when I’m exhausted and still have hours to go before night-sleep is possible. Naps allow me to regroup within a safe space. A medical necessity for lots of conditions, naps are one of my favorite forms of self CARE. Not pamper or indulge, but Take Care, we need to take care of ourselves and naps can be one of the most beneficial ways to do that. Keep on sleepin’ on, to paraphrase our Bob Dylan, even folk singers have to nap.
