Yesterday was a success as far as Operating WWL goes. I had GrapeNuts for breakfast, a salad for lunch (vegetarian salad with no naughty things), and a dry cereal snack. I DID eat a
Anyway. You don't care about that! You're ready for 5QF aren't ya?
Heeeeeeere we go!
1. When you met your spouse, did you instantly know it was love?
Mmm. Not when I "met" him, no. The first time we spent time together, though, I knew there was somethin' there. And then the first time we really talked, I just knew. I knew we were going to be together forever. I told him I was gonna marry him one day...and here we are, planning a wedding. We had an instant connection and there was just no stopping our little hearts from beating for each other. <3 I love him :)
2. What is your favorite room in your house?
Our bedroom. It has my lovely, wonderful bed. It's where I sit to Sharpie. It's the only place in the house I get clear cell service (darn you, T-Mobile!), thus the only place I can use the computer (unless the Mister is home). It's my little sanctuary and I love love love it!
3. Can you wiggle your ears?
Mmmm nope. But just like Mama, I can touch my tongue to my nose :)
4. What is your evening ritual?
I wash any dirty dishes at 4:30.
I start dinner at 4:45-5:00.
I fix everyone's plate and drink when the Mister gets home, usually between 5:30 and 5:45.
We eat dinner and are usually done by 6:15.
The Mister watches TV until 7, when one of my shows usually comes on ;)
7:00 Mama gets the TV. Yay. If none of my shows are on, we might play Wii. This is also the hour in which the Mister or I might take a shower if we're evening bathing. This is also the time of "Baby will you...." and "Mama can I have...." and "Please while you're up..." I usually burn out by 8:00 and declare myself "off" for the day :)
8:00 Chloe gets in the tub. I brief her on what has to be done (hair washed or no? bubbles or scrub?)
8:30 "MOOOOOOOM! I'm ready ta get out now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" "Just a minute!" (She never yells during a commercial. Never!) Her naked bum is dried, jammies put on, teeth brushed. She picks a book and gets her drink. We read the book, snuggle, say goodnight, hugs, kisses, etc.
9:00 The Mister and I watch tv until he gets sleepy, usually around 9:30. I get my grape juice and shut off the lights and tv. We go to bed and spend time together, usually sleeping by 10 or 10:30, depending on how chatty I am or how long he can listen without falling asleep on me ;)
5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
This is the honest truth. If I'm left alone to wake completely on my own, I will sleep ten hours almost to the minute. It's true. Doesn't matter if I'm super tired or super wired, once I go to sleep I will sleep ten hours. It's safe to say I get at least nine hours of sleep every night, and any less makes me VERY grouchy. I can't help it. I need my sleep :) And I love it. It's tempting to go back to sleep now.....but I won't.
