Stream of Consciousness--the Insomnia Edition

It's 3:00 a.m. and I am wide awake.  It all started with the bathroom...darn already-small bladder!  Then Caleb woke up "needing more light."  As soon as I started with a song in my head, I knew it wasn't looking good.  Now I have a new one:  "...I said Baby, it's 3 a.m. and I must be lonely..."  I was hungry too, so I snagged some of Matt's Vienna Fingers.  I was hoping to sneak them and he wouldn't notice.  Wouldn't you know he came down to check on me and caught me red-handed?  I'm excited to go to Canada this summer.  Caleb is thrilled about going to the falls and has pretend trips there all of the time.  I'm a little nervous about what my energy level will be by then and hope that I can keep up with Caleb.  I hate when I'm too tired to truly enjoy my vacation--especially a trip such as this. Our condo is only a few blocks from the falls, so I can go back and rest if I really need to.  Nothing is fitting right now.  My regular clothes are too small and are really uncomfortable to wear, and my maternity clothes are too big and fall down.  My kids just laugh at me.  My wardrobe is rather limited right now, although I do have a few XS pieces that I can wear.  Becky is downstairs with me and for some reason thinks that it's perfectly fine to whine and fuss in the middle of the night.  I have already taken her out and given her water.  She has food, but wants some soft food mixed in.  Uh-uh, dog.  It's 3 a.m.!!  I am definitely going to 5th grade next year.  There was some question because our numbers are too low to have 5 teachers, but my friend Sheila is staying in her current grade.  Sadness.  However, we're both happy to know exactly where we're going to be because we were concerned about having to move twice.  I am really excited to go to 5th.  I think it will be a good change for me, although I will miss Lara.  It's funny how much closer we've become in the last 4 years when I think back to when I first came to 4th grade.  She's a good teammate.  We only have 9 days of school now, which is extremely appealing to me.  9 days and a few days of moving stand between me and a (short) summer with my boy.  I hate to say it, but this year really has flown by.  I'm glad I'll have this group another year, but saying goodbye next year is going to be TOUGH!  Yeah, now I'm even more awake.  I was hoping typing this would help to empty my brain and let me sleep.  Not so much.  *sigh*
