Ok so I'll try and make this brief. My hubby, 2 kids, and I moved this past summer about 4hrs from our fam and friends. Summer was fun, lots to do/clean/unpack etc... I am a stay at home mom, do a little work out of my house, and I freelance write from time to time.

My son started full day kindergarten last week, now im home alone with the 2 year old and every day from morning until noon, im daydreaming about her afternoon nap - so that I can sleep too!!! Shes a great sleeper - still gives me 2hrs during the day. And I have been conking out - like the house could burn down around me and i'd never know. I even have been setting an alarm on my phone so that I dont miss my son's bus. I've never been so tired in my life.... and I only have 1/2 the responsibility that I used to. Plus I'm getting a full 8hrs a night. What is going on here!!!

Yes I exercise regularly, have a healthy diet, take vitamins... ect.. oh and NO I am not prego - tubes tied lol. Has anyone else ever done this?

You're probably just crashing from the summer. Give yourself a few weeks. There's nothing wrong with napping!

On the other hand, excessive sleepiness can be a sign of depression. Since you've moved far away from family and friends, it might be getting you down and you're sleeping so you don't have to think about it.

I do it from time to time and really hate getting into this habit as the more I sleep or nap the more I want to do it,the best answer I can give u is unless you have had bad nite.....don't do it
