Do you always know how much time has passed between here and there? My mother would fall asleep while watching tv. 3 shows later, one of us kids would move to change the channel and would hear "I was watchin' that!" Or you are laying there listening to the rain and you fade to black. Someone (usually a kid) comes in and asks if you want to get up yet. You look at the clock knowing you just laid down.... and hours have passed. The clock tells you that you have slept your night through but you feel as if you spent the night working way too hard. Your dreams had you jumping through one other world to another. You just woke up but feel like you need a nap. Have you been there? Tell us.....

Hi Chimes! You can bet your life that the ONCE in a bluemoon that I decide to have a nap in the afternoon.... twenty minutes after I've fallen asleep he phone will ring. No-one EVER phones in the afternoon normally! Not to mention mother who is in her 90th year. She will fall asleep in front of the television and when I visit I would rather go out in the garden or make a coffee or whatever than watch her doze but the minute I move she wakes telling me that I never TALK to her - umph!

Gals? SHUT OFF THE RINGER.... I do that when the kids nap too. I hate when folks call and I just laid down a fussy kid. ERRRR. I feel for you both! Diana, My mother is like yours... I take a book or paperwork. I spend an hour or so talking to myself.

When I go to see my mother it is usually for a week. In that time I manage to knit a jumper during her 'non-sleeping' time I shall be going again for a week after Easter and willget another one done then I have no doubt. I can't knit while I'm on the Lot so I do it when I'm there.

OH you bet! lol Not about sleeping the night through and not feeling as if I have cos that just doesn't happen for me although I am trying to rest during so called sleep hours but a few days without sleep and I will nod off and not realise I have! LOL I remember once thinking I had slept right around the clock and panicking like mad only to discover I had been asleep for 10 mins and hadn't missed a whole day at all! xxx

I had that happen once... I was dealing with sick kids (I only had the two then) and hadn't had much sleep for a few days. I got them in bed and both were sleeping so I was thankfully headed for sleep. I woke up and the light was just coming up. I was so worried as to why the boys hadn't gotten up. Then I rushed out and noticed that barely 30 minutes had passed because the video I had put on in their room was still going. It sure was a long week, I think it lasted a month.

It is a really horrible feeling isn't it sweety? Then very soon you realise you haven't slept but are too frightened to try and catch up on those ! Glad I am not the only one that has done that! What surprise that it is you and I who have done the same thing again! lol xxxx

WOW..you too? Are you sure your dad's name wasn't Bruce? Yeah... I get worried about them and then can't rest right. I jump at every sound. We are fighting a tummy flu right now and the littlest ones and I are ill. Sad to say, I'm kind of glad Hubby has been home for it. He's been a big help.

Yeah, I usually get 'Dad! You were asleep (and snoring) for two hours.' To which I say ... 'Well, a couple of minutes, perhaps.' and have to eat my words when shown the clock or the Radio Times.

I almost never lose track of time like that. Seems like no matter how much I'm into something, there is some sort of time awareness that is always there in the back of my head. My husband though, no concept of time whatsoever...

Naps are good and husbands are like that. Mine loves to tell me how he was just resting. Not sleeping mind you, resting. Silly man rests for hours.

Hi TLChimes, yes, my husband annoyes me when he want to watch something like bike rideing and I want to watch a drama, he would fall asleep half way through his programme and when I change the channel, he would say he was watching it, then I argue with him that he had his eyes shut, its just goes on so now I just carry on on my computer and just let him watch whatever he wants till he goes to bed and then I am left in peace to watch what I want.

It happened to me a few days before that I slept for upto 12 hours and even then I din't wanted to wake up... But now I've just recovered from that, you know this is only the restlessness of our mind that make us feel so... If we try to relax befoere we get to sleep that will really help!!! HAve a nice time dear!!!

I try to get a cup of tea, a good book and a good stretch of quiet before bed. It's a treat. It's the best I tend to do in relaxing.

I know that we all sat around as a family to watch a movie and then the bf fell asleep during it and it gets frustrating when you try to watch a movie together when the other person falls asleep when we were supposed to be watching a movie together as a family.

Yeah... I had one of those. Everytime. It drove me nuts. Until the boys told me that it was better when dad was sleeping because he talked too much when he was awake.

Time does pass quickly. If you are working too hard you do tend to fall asleep in odd places and then not feel like you have gotten any sleep. You have to go through all the stages of sleep to actually get some rest so I think that is why you feel unrested. Life is complicated and dreams even more so. They haven't even really figured them out yet. And, if you are on any kind of meds they are even weirder.

The meds through me off in all areas of my life I dream like I'm awake and I go through the waking hours half asleep.. I love when docs give you one pill to fight being drowsy and another to help you sleep.... somewhere in there I think they are a bit off.
