Happy Easter to all of you!!!

I will be celebrating my Easter next weekend as Greek Easter falls only one week after this year. However, the more I think about it the more I realize today is also my Easter as well. My mother is Australian so this is her Easter and she definitely took us Easter egg hunting when I was little. And we definitely had lots of Easter eggs and chocolate and food! Our family never misses a holiday that involves food that’s for sure – it’s like we also always celebrated Thanksgiving growing up even though we have no family that are American – granted we went to the USA every year at either Christmas or Easter or both for skiing, so I know I have strong ties to America from childhood, but technically none of us have a direct American connection except our close friends…but hey, it was a chance to eat and have a dinner party! So, we did that! I also vaguely remember getting presents at Thanksgiving…which is not the point of the holiday at all!!!

Being half Australian and half Greek also meant that I got presents on Christmas but then also some more presents on New Years due to St. Nicholas coming then to deliver presents as the Greek tradition! So that was another score! AND, since I am Greek I have a name day, which actually fluctuates with Greek Easter – so St Zoe Day is always the Friday after Greek Easter. BUT ALSO, my real name is double barrel, so its Zoe-Christina, so technically I have second name day for Christina which comes from Christ so is indeed on Christmas….but I never really got more presents on Christmas because of that…althogh I should have!! I probably brought that up a few times when I was younger being the brat I was!!

It seems the Australian in me gets put to the side, and the growing up in England, and the American annual tie, as being Greek takes the forefront. And it’s true – I feel more Greek than anything and have a stronger connection to Greece and being Greek, always. So it doesn’t really feel like my Easter today at all. BUT, it is. AND, I was also thinking that I am now married to a Brit, and this is Stuart’s Easter so it really should now be more important in our family. And as I was picking up some Easter goodies for Stuart yesterday from the import store I realized that today was special and I should be celebrating. And I would want the new addition to our family to also have both Easter’s like I had. So ahead I should try to not let the Greek rule over the British traditions always (even though Greece of course rules ๐Ÿ™‚ haha!), at least for Stuart’s and the newbie’s sake, I will happily celebrate more holidays!

I mean who can say no to chocolate??!!

And who can say no to Stuart cooking a roast dinner tonight for us for when I get back from rehearsal??!!

I never believed in the Easter Bunny though – I do remember that! I knew it was my mum…so not sure about carrying on that part of the tradition to the newbie! Unless I make Stuart dress up like a giant Bunny every year haha!

I am not going to lie – it’s a little creepy!! Isn’t it??

Yup, you guessed it I am sure by the early blog entries today….I can’t sleep! No news here, just the same ol’ same ol’ I can’t sleep routine. Rough night – not sure but I was up for most of the night. I know I am having a hard time getting comfortable for some reason but there’s got to be more to it than that as eventually you would find a position, right?? Nope, not me. And I have always been a bad sleeper, waking up every hour, before I was pregnant, but now it’s worse than that! And I could never imagine it being worse ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

As I was thinking this morning while lying there, maybe things are going on in my belly and its keeping me awake? Could that be a viable option maybe? I am a very light sleeper so it could be a theory – which means that this will then continue until September 22nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!

Well I decided to get up and do my 365 while I was awake before I had to go to my Brooklyn apartment walk-through with a client (a difficult client actually, so we’ll see how that goes!!). Doing 365 half asleep is odd! It’s kind of like your ears are blocked or something and your body won’t move the way you want it to – you know, like when you try to make a fist with your hand first thing and it won’t close all the way…that’s how my dance felt this morning! Only time I am ever dancing in the morning is when I have been up all night dancing and its the morning and I am still dancing!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, guess what everybody? BIG NEWS!! I am having quadrouplets!!!!!!!!!

Yup, quadrouplets!!! I just found out – my doctor just called me!!!!

AND, I just checked my lottery ticket and I won the mega millions lottery!!!!!

AND, I just got a knock at the door and I amย one of those cash prize winners for life!!!!

AND, I just got a call that my birth certificate is wrong and they made a mistake – they wrote 1981 by mistake but they meant to write 1987!! So, I’m only 25!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!

AND, a pig just flew past my window!!!!!

AND…..

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(inspired by the fact I woke up to a text from my father that he won the British lottery and I wrote back saying I was having quadrouplets!! Haha!!)

I wish this 365 Challenge was an April Fool’s Day joke!!!!!!!
