To Sleep, Perchance To Dream

Sleep and I haven't been too friendly lately and boy, do I miss it! I should be napping when you nap, but that doesn't work out too well for me. I have never been a napper, besides when would I blog, let alone get dressed, eat, or do the piles and piles of laundry you create?

Your dad and I take turns getting up with you at night and most mornings, he is kind enough to care for you and let me sleep in as long as possible before he has to get ready to go to work, but for the past few weeks (just when you were almost sleeping through the night!?) you have been getting up almost every two hours and our mornings start sometimes as early as 5:30 AM, so we are all very sleep deprived.

I've collected quotes for as long as I can remember and here are a few from the archives on sleep, glorious sleep:

"A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - Irish proverb

"Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep." - Fran Lebowitz

"Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone." - Anthony Burgess

"That we are not much sicker and much madder than we are is due exclusively to that most blessed and blessing of all natural graces, sleep." - Aldous Huxley

"True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment." - William Penn

"Not being able to sleep is terrible. You have the misery of having partied all night... without the satisfaction." - Lynn Johnston

"There is only one thing people like that is good for them; a good night's sleep." - Edgar Watson Howe

"Money will buy you a bed, but not a good night's sleep, a house but not a home, a companion but not a friend. - Zig Ziglar

"Sleep is like the unicorn, it is rumored to exist but I doubt I will see any." - Anonymous

My personal favorite:

"People who say they "sleep like a baby" usually don't have one." - Leo J. Burke

The best is yet to be (and here's hoping it involves sweet sweet dreams!).

Another thing we have in common-our LOVE of sleep! But I am pretty good at napping if I am tired. In fact in college, I loved napping in the middle of the day after my morning and afternoon classes. I still do enjoy a good nap if I'm not doing anything Sunday afternoons.
And yet another thing we have in common, I collect quotes too! I have them all typed up on my computer in different folders according to what they are about. I didn't have those sleep quotes so I definitely added them to my collection. Thanks!

So funny...I used to get so annoyed with those people who would say "sleep is overrated". Clearly they were getting enough...there is a reason that sleep deprivation is used as a torture tactic!

Happy peaceful sleep to you!
