Are you a morning person or a night person?

Um, that’s a really twisted question to ask the mother of 5-month old twins. Morning and night blend seamlessly together in a haze of cranky babeez who just want to cuddle and munch at any odd hour.
I used to be a neither-person. I don’t particularly like getting up early – I’d rather sleep in, although I do like the sense of accomplishment that comes from completing something at a ridiculously early hour. And I’m not a night person. 11:00pm is a late night for me. I remember when I first started waitressing all those years ago, and how exhausted I was staying at work til 10pm! And then I started closing the lounge, at 2am! I don’t know how I survived…
I’m an afternoon-with-a-Starbucks kind of girl
Do you like to shop? If yes, for what? Alone, or with others?
I’ve never been a mall-rat. I hate shopping for myself and I hate grocery shopping. Everything becomes too expensive and unnecessary. I have found a love of Joe Clothing
at Superstore. Everything they have is super cheap and really nice. I actually have very little clothing now that isn’t
from there! Just a couple pairs of Lulus and a pair of jeans, really.
I do love to shop for baby clothes, but again, my wallet seizes up into fits of financial anxiety. But if it’s on sale, look out! I love Wal-mart for kids’ clothes (did I just write that? Shame!!), and Joe has some pretty sweet stuff, but very little in the 0-3 month range.
I despise shopping with other people. Period. It makes me uncomfortable.
What is something that really motivates you?
I actually will take the girls on a TWO HOUR walk so that Starbucks falls into the middle of the loop.
Other things that motivate me include my bathroom scale (shame!), looking at my bank balance (shame!!) and reading other people’s blogs. That sounds creepier than I meant for it to
What is the one thing you look forward to each day?
No, my babeez. As much as I love my sleep (or lack thereof), I love seeing their bright, smiling faces – or screaming, cranky faces – each morning, afternoon and evening. I love seeing them when I come home from work at night. I love every second.
What do you miss most in this world?
(ok, I added that last question myself)
