    You've found yourself in the middle of an unanticipated nap!!!

    You have no idea of how long it will last. So what do you do with your new found free time? GO!!

    The smart thing to do would be to take a nap yourself. I usually end up doing housework or messing around on this silly computer instead.

    I've chosen to use it to:
    - do some laundry
    - take the dogs out
    - have some tea and toast
    - "me time" on the computer
    If she keeps sleeping, I'm gonna have a shower in 5 minutes. Ahhhh a SHOWER!!!

    I would (in this order)
    Pee all by myself
    Take an uninterrupted shower
    Thoroughly brush my teeth
    Throw in a load of laundry
    Start the dishwasher
    Catch up on horrible daytime television with a lovely carb-rich snack

    After the night/morning we had? Nap, for sure. Although it's hard to believe that this scenario would ever happen.
