Good article and interesting discussions back and forth. I am currently working on several bathroom projects and the subject of grab bars/ safety and design is always at the forefront in the planning.

I was really sick in my late 20's and got in the habit of napping to deal with health issues now. Been healthy for many years now and try to have a nape every Saturday and Sunday. I wake up so much earlier than the rest of my family and am very productive. We have a family room/efficiency apartment above our garage that is the ideal nap place. The walls are dark so even with lots of windows it's peaceful. My old dog joins me and hubby turns on soft music and I'm out. Awesome guy that hubby is he brings me iced coffee when nap is over. That helps me stay up late enough to hang out with him later in the evening, he's a night owl.
