So, how is that a 15-year-old girl can sleep through 3 alarm clocks blaring at full blast? My niece is staying with me for the week while Mama and new baby are staying with my mom and it's been an adventure. It's been awhile since I've had to play "mommy". I have someone to cook for, someone to talk to ~~ it's just been so nice having her there. She planned the meals all week ~~ I just had to cook them :-)
Anyway, I just have one bedroom at my place, so that's where she's sleeping. I'm sleeping on the couch. She has 3 alarm clocks; I only have the one on my cell phone. My alarm is set for 6am; hers are set for 5am. Guess when I'm waking up? That's right, 5am. Nothing like being shocked out of a peaceful slumber by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne blaring through the house. Quite a way to wake up, let me tell you. Oh and just ask me when she's getting up. Oh, between 6 and 6:15 most days ~~ this morning it was at 6:30 and she has to be at school by 7am. Oh the joy.
Did I mention I only have one bathroom? One tiny bathroom. Not enough room for two people to get ready, so I guess it's a good thing that Kiddo's alarms are waking me so early because that's the only time I have to get ready. Once kiddo gets out of bed, it's all over. A teenager has invaded the bathroom and no grown woman can enter that realm.
In spite of all this, her mom comes home tomorrow and I'll miss her. It's been nice having her around again ~~ even if I am left scratching my head at her random teenager-ness.
On the reading front, I started "Wishes" by Jude Deveraux and am hooked. I'm only 60 pages into it so far, but all I want to do right now is go home and finish it. I love the two main characters so much and am really looking forward to reading their story.
**Oh, and I just found out that this is part of the Montgomery/Taggert series (I know, I was raised under a rock). There are 28 books in the Montgomery/Taggert series ~ yikes. I guess I'll add these to my Christmas list and hope I get a few of them (because you know I don't have enough books in my TBR pile already). Yikes, again.
