Do You Ever Sleep In ?

Some people never sleep in.  I call these morning people.  No matter what time they were up until the night before; no matter what they don't have going on that next day; no matter how exhausted their body is; they just have an internal alarm clock that wakes them up and forces them out of bed at roughly the same time every day.

I am NOT one of those people.

I believe, given the right circumstances, that I could sleep well into the afternoon hours.  Of course the guilt afterward for having "wasted" all those precious daytime hours would be terrible, but who's to say that our bodies don't need that occasional "reboot" which only comes from a system shut down that exceeds the normal pattern?

Today is one of those days.  I won't say when I slept in until, but it was plenty of time (more than a typical night of sleep should account for).  Of course I am somewhat more refreshed while also disappointed in the "wasted" time on one of my two days off ... But there is not too much regret.  I still had time to finish my "chores" and run the errands I had committed to today's schedule.  I just had to forego a few other activities that I know I would have enjoyed.

Song Of The Day:
I love how you can buy an artist's CD based on one song you like, only to find out later that it is not your favorite song on that CD.  This doesn't happen as often as it used to, especially now that you can buy individual songs and also preview portions of every song on a CD before making a purchase.  That said, today's song is one that I happened upon after buying Jason Mraz's first CD.  The song is titled "Sleep All Day" and (as always with his music) the words to the tune are just as enjoyable as the melody and music.
