Ok, I'm just going to put this out there-I LOATHE the snooze button. I have never quite understood why people use it. I have always been the type of person that jumps up at the first micro beep of the alarm and promptly turns it off. There might have been a few instances where I slept a little later, but they are few and far between. Now that I am a SAHM, I don't really have a need for an alarm lock because a) my children wake up at an insane time of 6 am, b) I don't really have that many activities that require me to be up and dressed before my kids have me up and c) I have no life, thus refering you back to reason b.

My wonderful husband on the other hand has to be up and out of the house by 7:15 am. Not too bad. He sets his alarm for 6 am. I don't understand this really; our children are usually up at that time so why not get up when they/I do? Regardless, he sets his alarm. 6 am...Beep, beep, beep...Snooze. 6:09 am...Beep, beep, beep...Snooze. 6:18 am...Beep, beep, beep...Snooze. 6:27 am...Beep, beep, beep...Snooze. I come into the run, turn on the lights and pull the covers off my supposed-to-be-in-the-shower-by-now-husband and reprimand him for making me listen to the horrendous noise of the alarm. "I'm getting up honey. See, my eyes are open...." As he rolls over and tries to pull the covers back up. Ugggggggghhhhhhh.

Seriously, why not just set the alarm for the time that you ACTUALLY want to get up? So now my fantastic husband has to rush thru getting ready and runs out the door in a huff. See, if you would have just gotten up when you set your alarm to wake you, everything would have run sooooo much more smoothly.

To add insult to injury (not really, I just thought that sounded cool) Tucker spilled coke onto my laptop and now the space bar, shift, c, v, d, f, g, m, and , keys are sticking. Grrr.

Another side note-I am totally digging natural gas. Our electric bill was waaay better than I thought it would be from last month. Yay!

My hubby is a multiple snoozer too. Drives me CRAZY!!! (Mostly because I'm still in bed since my girlies don't get up till 8). I HATE the alarm clock noise!!!

Kevin does it too and I HATE it. Not that I'm a great morning person but still. Before baby I would set my alarm for the absolute latest time I could sleep so I could get actual sleep. Snooze sleep is not real sleep. After baby I wouldn't dare use an alarm because we all know she will wake up at 4:57 am so there is no need.
