Look what I was surprised with after my post last night:

Awww! Although not from the hubs. They were brought to me by the neighborhood kid I tutor in Spanish. He got 100's on his last two tests/quizzes and wanted to show his appreciation. Roses are a bit of an awkward choice for a teacher, but hey - they look perfect on our mantel with our other Christmas decorations so I ain't complaining. Smilies

The night ended with watching last night's The Biggest Loser as well as the results show for So You Think You Can Dance. Both good episodes, but nothing too surprising/exciting. Then it was time for bed....or so I thought. My body had different plans.

For some reason, I had a serious case of insomnia last night. I couldn't fall asleep and then by the time I was starting to drift off, hubs was deep in snore land and there was no way I was going to be able to ignore it. So I packed up a blanket and my book and headed to the couch. I planned to read some of my book to help me get tired again. NOPE! Somehow, reading only woke me more, which never happens. And I had just started the book so it wasn't anything particularly suspenseful making me excited to keep reading. I finally started drifting off after 3 - and then awoke at 4:30 with an intense crick in my neck. Laid around again for an hour, before heading up to bed since hubs was up for work at this point. And leave it to Makenzie to choose this day to wake up at 6:30 instead of her usual 7:30. So I have downed 3 cups of coffee and been a bum today. My neck is in pain and my head is throbbing due to lack of sleep. No gym and no dancing with baby M. Boring day. At least my new book is good! Smilies
