Insomnia

UGH...it's 3 AM and I'm wide awake--again! I hate my sleep patterns lately. I have no trouble falling asleep--often before 10 pm. Then I'm awake before 5:30, which isn't too awful. But, 2:30 AM? That just bites! I'll play on the computer a bit and then crawl into bed and fall back asleep until K wakes us up around 6. I wish I knew why I have these sleep issues. It's very frustrating...

Anyway, yesterday was my birthday and I had a really nice day with my guys. I had a few hours to myself in the morning and then we went to a nearby state park to hike. The wildflowers are in bloom so it was a pretty jaunt. :) I wish we could have stayed longer, but we had a full day of activities planned. After hiking we went to M*mi's Cafe for lunch. The whole restaurant resembles a French bistro so I love it there! Then we ran into the mall for a bit. I ended up buying stuff for K, but nothing for me. We all enjoyed the first "Chipmunks" movie so we went to the cheap theater to see the Squeakel. It was okay. We then went home to dye Easter eggs, give K a haircut and bath and then get him to bed early since it was Day #3 without a nap. (He was asleep by 6:30) Mike made homemade pizza for supper and we watched "The Informant"...interesting movie, I guess...

Speaking of birthdays...did you realize how awesome it is to sign up for restaurant e-clubs? You can really get lots of freebies on your birthday when you do! I think I got around 20 different emails for free dessert or appetizer, free meal, or money-off coupons. It's fun! We used the F*mous D*ave's email for a free rib dinner. I took K out for lunch and used my free dessert at Chili s. (SO YUMMY!) The best part is that you usually have about 2 weeks to use the coupons so you can actually have some time to use more than one, if you want. Just head to the website of your favorite restaurants and sign up for their e-club. It's so worth it!

It's Easter morning! It's so cool to talk with K about Good Friday and Easter. He understands so much better now that he's a year older. He knows that today is a very happy day to celebrate what Jesus has done for us. I LOVE Easter morning services--especially with the trumpet playing. I think singing "I Know That My Redeemer Lives" with the trumpet is the best. It never fails to bring tears to my eyes. What an amazing God we have! Happy Easter!

Glad I am not the only one to cry on every Easter Sunday!
