Sleep

sleep-clipart-nixbkbxxtI understand the need for sleep, although I can’t remember the last time I actually had a restful night of it.  I was reminded of this a couple of weeks ago when the kids got my wife one of those watch devices that measure your steps, heart rate, and how well you sleep.  The first night my wife wore the device to bed it said she got 2 hours of sleep.  I thought to myself, can that really be right?  As I pondered this I started to realize all of the things that occur at night.  There is MC’s nightly trip to the bathroom; he usually tries to climb in our bed which ends the deep sleep.  Then there is the nosiest frog I’ve ever heard in the backyard, the cats tearing around the house, and the hamster wheel that squeaks no matter what I do.  After thinking about it 2 hours is pretty good!
