Neil Diamond is my friend

"There are two kinds of people in the world...those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't"
-What About Bob

I am definitely one of those people that like him. Greg and I attended his concert in Salt Lake on Friday night. It was a delayed anniversary present. We had the greatest time...at least I did. The best part was that he played so many of my favorites like Shilo, I am I said, Love on the Rocks, You don't bring me flowers, Holly Holy, Cracklin Rose, Cherry Cherry, and Play me. Usually when I go to concerts I go home a little sad because the singer didn't do my favorites and played a lot of songs I didn't know etc. Not this concert...it was seriously the best. I would go again in a heartbeat. I was perma-grin the entire time. Greg thinks I'm quite nerdy, which is probably true. There were, however, 2 couples in front of us around our age and the men got up and danced and were so happy when "Forever in Blue Jeans" came on (the wives weren't as enthusiastic).

Sleep runs my life

Sleep has so much to do with how I feel each day, how much patience I have and how I function. I was so pleased when I sleep trained Skyler and he started sleeping until 7 am! Well, then the time change came and he was waking up at 6 instead. That's still okay. Then it was 5:30. Well the last two nights I've put him to bed around 7 or 8 and then he has woken up at 10, 2, 3:30, 6:30, then finally 8:30. I wondering if this is a new habit? Or if it is growth spurt? What is going on??? If I just knew I could fix it. Also the fact that Reagan has been getting up at 6:30 am on the dot isn't helping. I hate it so bad. Reagan has a child lock on the inside of her door so she can't get out of her room without our help. When she wakes up in the morning she goes straight for the door and KNOCKS KNOCKS KNOCKS as LOUD as she can. It is the worst feeling when I hear that knock. It is like I am in high school again and I hear my alarm clock beeping (I had to get up for a paper route and seminary at 4:30 am). Help!
