MetroNaps (Genius!!!)

T's home sick today. I've been sleeping in the guest room the last couple of nights because the A/C's been out downstairs. The guest bedroom is right next to T's room and she was up all night coughing. At 4:30 AM I went into her room and turned off her alarm and told her to just rest today. She woke up around 9 AM and is enjoying some hot chocolate. I think I'm gonna make her clean her room and her closet while she's home today. She's not running a fever, just has an annoying cough.

New A/C is being installed today. Of course it is. Today is supposed to be in the 70's. The days don't bother me, it's been very comfortable in the house. Just too hot for me at night.
I need it to be sub-zero in order for me to achieve optimum REM. I like it to be so cold I actually slip into a deep cryogenic catatonic sleep. I've heard about a company called "MetroNaps" in NYC. It's on the 24th floor of the Empire State Building. For less than $15 you can go in during your lunch time and take a little nappy in a sleep pod (similar to the photo above). Each pod is equipped w/ white noise machines and a “wake-station,” with mints, refreshing spray, hand towels and a locker for your things. The sleep pod has a privacy bubble and built-in full body buzzer-as-alarm clock. To make sure that people don’t have to make a decision between their bellies and taking a nap in the pod, MetroNaps does offer a mix of sandwiches and salads that can be ordered when you start your nap and ready to go when you leave. MetroNaps is quick to point out the science behind the value of naptime (preaching to the choir here! Trust me! I know the value of naptime!). The Pod, allows the napper to elevate the feet to increase circulation and take stress off the lower back. I wonder if you have to bring your own blankie???

Naps rock!!! I myself have to be really drained to take one, but my father has always, ALWAYS, taken an hour nap every day after lunch. He does it in his work clothes, quite a sight and gets right up is amazing b/c if I do get to take a nap I am groggy and pretty much a dud the rest of the day, guess I am just wired different. Glad your ac is fixed, it sucks when it is not working!!!!!
