Last week’s poll asked where you get your recipes from. While I have used any number of sources (family, friends, web, etc) to get recipes to make at home, I most often find myself looking through the web to do so and based on the results of the poll most people here do as well. I loved seeing the suggestions from others and have added a few to my RSS reader to ensure I don’t miss any decent recipes coming up in the future. NOM!
This week’s poll comes after a few crazy weeks of seemingly not enough sleep and too much work. It’s been busy around here lately. Between my last class for school, even more work to do at work and more travel than I am used to, I have been tired as can be. Some nights I passed out at 8 PM and didn’t wake up until 7 AM when the kids were starting to stir. While I have always been a “needing 8 hours” sleeper, I have also been able to jump out of bed as soon as the alarm sounded–especially if I had some place to be. However, lately, I have found myself using snooze more and more–something I need to avoid doing. In the past I would move the alarm out of arms’ reach so I couldn’t simply just roll over and turn it off but now with sleeping kiddos who I wish not to awaken any earlier than they want to get up, it’s harder to do that without risking screaming at 7 AM. Boo!
What sort of alarm person are you? Do you wake up naturally? Do you wake up as soon as the alarm goes off and you’re ready to go? Do you use snooze over and over again (intentionally or not)? Do you have a solution to the problem I’m having with the kids and the alarm having the potential to wake them up? Whatever you have to say go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
