Over the past month I have woken many mornings feeling like I hadn’t had enough sleep… and I probably hadn’t! My answer as I jumped/staggered out of bed was, “I have time for a catnap later today, so all will be good.” Day after day went by and when it came time for a nap, I decided I wasn’t tired anymore and would be alright without it.
