I've been tagged by Courtney! This means that I have to answer a bunch of questions...

1) Do you use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning?
Yes - kind of. My alarm clock up until about a week ago was a little thing that sleeps in our room called "baby girl". She used to wake up consistently every morning around 5:00. Then she would nurse and go back to sleep and at that point, it was time for me to start to get ready for work, since I'm supposed to be here at 7:00am.

However, she has finally started to actually sleep through the night! I used to set my real alarm clock, too, every night just in case she didn't wake up, but now that she's doing a good job of sleeping, I don't want to wake her up with my alarm clock. Instead, I've started sleeping with my cell phone underneath my pillow (which is kind of uncomfortable, since my pillow is so flat in the first place). I have an alarm set on it now and it vibrates to wake me up in the morning. Got this idea from the Wake and Shake Alarm Clock that we saw on HGTV's "I Want That" show. It has this thing that vibrates under your pillow and it's supposed to prevent your partner from being annoyed by your alarm clock in the morning. However, according to my husband, the vibrating phone wakes him up, too. It doesn't wake up baby girl, though, and that's the most important thing!

2) What time do you set it for?

3) Do you hit the snooze button? If so how many times?
When we didn't have someone else sleeping in our bedroom, I used to hit the snooze button every morning. Sometimes, I would hit it for an hour without even knowing I was doing it!! Now there's no snooze button on my phone, which is OK because having that thing vibrate right next to my head in the morning scares the bejeezus out of me and there's no way I could go back to sleep after getting that much of an adrenaline rush at 5:23am.

4) Have you ever abused an alarm clock?
Considering the fact that I HATE waking up in the morning (just ask my husband or my mom about that one), I'm sure I must have abused an alarm clock sometime along the way.

I had an alarm clock one time that was turned off by sound, so I could just yell at it. That was fun.

5) It’s “time” to spread some “It’s Blogcess” linky love.
Now comes the time that I'm supposed to "tag" some other people, but since I only know one other person with a blog, I guess he's going to be the only unlucky person. I'll send you over to my brother at The Blind Watchmaker. I'm not sure he'll actually respond, though, since he seems to want to keep his blog about important debates like ID and pompous asses on the radio.
