5QF, WWL, True Love and Sleep.

It's Friday! It's Friday with no school and lots of snow! YAY! I'm currently still snuggled in my bed trying to tap the keys quietly so not to wake the little sleepy head in the next room. She loves to sleep in as much as her mama does, but between a whining puppy and the Mister's alarm going off five times this morning, I couldn't return to slumberland.

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 shitload good size portion of mashed potatoes, but I didn't have any ice cream or any other "white" carbs, so I justify the taters. Mmm they were good, too.  I also danced my tushi off on Just Dance 2. My entire BODY is revolting now. One false move and my muscles remind me that I might be too old, or too out of shape to shake it like that ;)

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.
