I've been retired since 2003.I have always had trouble sleeping thru the night.Because of this,I make it a point never to take a nap.DW works 3 days a week.She'll nap on the couch for 1 to 2 hours at night,then would like to watch the mono-log on the tonight show.
Though I try to be in bed by 11pm,I can't sleep with the TV on in the other room.Even if I did,I'd wake up when my wife comes to bed.It always takes my an hour or so to get back to sleep.

DW likes to set the alarm early,even on her off-days.When the alarm goes off,she'll hit the snooze button or turn the alarm off.She likes the feeling of being able to go back to sleep.

The problem is that if I was lucky enough to be asleep when the alarm went off,I never get back to sleep.

Grumble...mumble.....gripe.......grouse....
