It is so hard to believe that it is Easter already. Easter is defintely one of my favorite Holidays. I have a lot of great memories of growing up and making today really special. I used to get the best Easter baskets and amongst other things too, such as a bike one year and roller blades. Those being the biggest ones I can remember. I am shocked though how these Easter baskets have grown, it is almost like a mini Christmas.
Today is a day of just rest for me and the Bubba. We have lunch plans with his grandma in a few hours and then nothing the rest of the day. I have been having some trouble sleeping, which I really never do, but this week, it has been seriously all off. Waking up around 3:30-4:30 and having the worst time falling back to sleep. Such as this morning, so I stopped fighting and got up and cleaned the apartment and then did some stuff on the computer until I finally got really tired around 6 and then only fell asleep until 8:15. And have been up ever since.
I am not sure if it is because I have included working out again into my routine and my body is just not used to it but it is strange. But a nap is on deck at some point today too.
While, I do not have an Easter Basket, I did get James a few things, his favorite candies and I picked up some Peeps and Cadbury Cream Eggs for myself. I can indulge in one today as long as I go to the gym for at least an hour, that is my justification.
