Monday Madness

 

So on this wonderful Monday morning I woke up easily, (why? I have no idea.) got out of bed, and did my normal rounds of opening doors and turning on lights. My oldest, who has her bedroom in the basement did not want to get up, so I yelled down the stairs until she did (I can't imagine how my voice echos down there, ha ha).
They all got up, got dressed, had the normal arguments over bathrooms, brushes, make-up, and breakfast. And it wasn't until Macy said, "um, Mom? I thought since daylight savings time it is supposed to be light when we get up?"
"Sorry, I don't control the daylight, test your blood sugar." was my response, I am not much of a morning person. The rolling of the eyes and the I am... as normal.
So as she is testing, I look out the window. It is kinda dark outside. Hmmm. I went to the fridge, fumbled around, lifting up many pieces of 7 year old art clipped to other pieces of paper, and then I found it. The bus schedule I had made at the beginning of the year...Macy-6:50am, Twins-7:00am, Haley-7:57am (yeah the youngest leaves a whole hour later than the rest, it drives me batty too). I casually glance over at the clock... 5:45am. Woops!
Yeah, I woke 3 of the 4 girls up an hour earlier than needed. I admitted my error. Apologized repeatedly and I pretty much just got a bunch of "Jeez, Mom!" and "Thanks a lot!" We had some time to relax and no one forgot anything this morning! I wonder if I try it again tomorrow if it will work again? I bet they go to sleep on time tonight! Ha ha! Monday Morning Madness!!!!
So I love blog hops...its the best way to find other blogs I enjoy reading. I follow a lot of blogs, I go thru my blog updates every day, and I read quite a lot of them.
I love getting new followers (especially when my husband says things like, "there are 91 people out there who actually read what you write? Why?"), I love comments, and I love the opportunity to meet and get to know new people!
So here is to another blog hop...with a twist!
Welcome if you are a new follower to me...will you be so kind as to leave your blog link so I can follow you back? And maybe answer some random and kinda fun questions? (Java at Never Growing Old had a great Idea, I am borrowing her Idea and changing it to suit me...But I always, always give credit where credit is due, hence the link)!

Questions....

1. Do you have children? (How many?)
2. Do you have a favorite holiday? (which one?)
3. Are you a Type A or Type B personality?
4. List something that always makes you laugh out loud...

So answer these questions in your comment to me and I promise to follow you back!

Here are my answers...
1. YES, 5 (plus 1 technically removed) ages, 15, 13, 13 (well the twins will be 13 on Wednesday), 7, 2, and the one who is technically my ex-step daughter (though I still consider her my daughter) is 21!
2. Yes, Christmas of course!!!
3. I am a Type A with a side of Lazy
4. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

  4. I have 2 kids...3 years and 9 months.
    Favourite holiday...Christmas, without question!
    Type? Well...I like to things spontaneously, but I ALWAYS have to know what the plan is, last minute. Oh, and I'm in charge (but aren't all moms?). So whatever type that makes me...C???
    What makes me laugh out loud? Reading about someone that can be JUST as scatterbrained as me...getting everyone up an hour early on Monday morning? Funniest thing ever!
