How’d you sleep? I usually sleep very well, and in truth, I actually slept well last night. I woke up at around 1:00 AM and then went back to sleep in about half an hour. My wife does not sleep well. She was also up at 1:00 but finds it hard to get back to sleep. Is this normal?

I can sleep anywhere at any time. I can almost fall asleep standing up, so sleep has never been an issue with me. I know it’s not the same for others, but I try to find a way to get in enough hours to sleep. I also like my naps – I occasionally will drift off for a “power nap,” as they’re now called, but it’s really just some needed downtime for me. No power is involved.

I hope y’all sleep well.
