"That must be a retirement thing. Whenever I've taken two weeks vacation in a row, I naturally start going to bed around midnight and getting out of bed the next morning around 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. (clock radio alarm is disabled of course). This schedule does not work well when I work, because I start work around 7:00 a.m. :-( " Mike

Another thing most work places aren't too keen on is afternoon naps. Most days I take a ~ 30 minute to 2 hour afternoon nap. If I feel the least bit tired I'll stretch out somewhere and "rest my eyes" for a while. "Rest my eyes" is a euphemism for sleep. Being able to take an afternoon nap is one of the most luxurious things about being retired. That and not having to get up early in the morning or be awakened by an alarm clock! Alarm clocks are like torture devices.
