Really Works

So, mornings are NOT fun around these parts.

1- I need at LEAST 30 mins to myself. (Before I start my headless chicken marathon.)
2-Wil stays up late with me. This either results in over sleeping OR a GrumpyGus attitude as he complains and states over and over, "I need to go to bed earlier." (I don't make him stay up~ the joy individuals experience while spending time with me is a natural occurrence. It is just part of what makes me ME.)
3-Jack wakes up ready to go. Chatter spewing from his pie hole. Incessant, Happy chatter. (This is NOT a good thing when I am still rubbing the sleep from my peepers.)
4-Luke takes after dear old mom. A HEFTY 30 mins to get him rolling. And I turn into a screaming me-me. (surprising. as I am a headless chicken)
5-Kate. Oh Kate. She does not awake happy. Whines and grumps for 30 minutes. No words. (This makes my heart stutter. I am trying to NOT go military on those preparing for their day, but the whimpers, oHHhhhhhhhh.... it could flip me into Drill Sergeant mode.)
So, today I tried something new. I sprayed Scentsy Room spray (don't you love SCENTSY?).

Three sprays in my room. One in the Bathroom. Two sprays in the boys room~ one above each slumbering boy. Everyone thought I was baking. Cookies for Breakfast? They couldn't get up fast enough.

BTW, Kate's door was closed tight during this experiment. Towel shoved at the bottom. Don't want her awake just yet.
I did this AFTER I had spent my 30 mins in BlogLand.
Happy Day.

You should try this.
My Jennifer sells it. She JUST started blogging. Hopefully she'll see this and post all about her Scentsy life!

I love the description in the a.m. It sounds a lot like us, except I do turn into drill sargeant mode. Why does it take so stinkin' long to get dressed? Really people!!

I should try the Scentsy. I need to order some from Jennifer. So happy that she has a blog! I knew that she would cave and start one.

Happy Monday and THANK you for your comments. You are the best!

We have some of both in this household too, it can be really annoying first thing in the a.m.!

I would like to wake up to a heavenly scent like cookies baking in the oven too!

Glad you got your blog time in...

I have missed your blog so much, due to a long story involving the evil cable company that took 3 weeks to hook us up and and the evil phone company that turned off our internet too soon I have been forced into computer withdrawl for the last 2 weeks. I had to keep reminding my self that I had survived without daily access to witty blogs for a long time, but it was pretty hard. I don't know if I am just gullible, but I believe all the stories from your last post and I would have loved to have been a fly on your rearview mirror for the return trip from Tijuana...

We are not morning people either. The kids know to come into my room and ask for a cartoon. They give me a good 45 minutes to wake up and then ask to eat.

Hey there, I don't know why I haven't tried the Scentsy spray. What a great idea. I know where you can get more. Kids are off now, happy sleeping in.
Love ya
