what do you do when you can't sleep?

don't you hate that, when you're tossing and turning, just knowing how tired you're going to be in the morning when you have to go to work? well, tonight's one of those nights for me. as i'm writing it is almost 2am. scott's at ups working right now. there's no one i can call at this time to vent my frustration to. i keep thinking about the busyness of the next day of work, and how i might get called by the office anytime in the middle of the night to work a shift. i keep thinking about how frustrated i am with one of my acquaintances, and what i'd say to her if i only had the nerve. all these things are churning in my mind and i'm grinding my teeth subconsciously. i'm eating to see if that helps me sleep. and i'm watching yet another show to see if that makes me sleepy enough to forget everything.
so i'm asking you, what's your advice when you can't sleep? what's the best way to redirect your thoughts to things that are lovely, just, and pure? how can i rest in perfect peace? it's simple right? go to the Word, pray, keep your mind stayed on Him. it's that simple, yet so hard at times!

scott and i are thankful for friends to celebrate Easter with.
we had a potluck with some friends from church that we normally rotate lunches with on sunday's. we had a good ham with lots of other food.

scott showed a Texan and a Floridan how to enjoy snow

crocheting progress

above is a blanket i started before i was married.
took me about 2 years to finally finish.
so it's a big night for me. :)

above is a blanket i made for scott 3 Christmas ago

once in a while poor scott gets stuck helping me get knots out

and here is a scarf i just finished.
it's much faster than doing single stitch on a huge blanket
