Meme for those with the Daylight Savings Time Blues (which...might just be me)

So, I totally spaced that Daylight Savings Time was this weekend. When I lived in Indiana, we never changed time. Moved to Arizona when I was 24 -- they never changed time. Not until I moved to Colorado at 26 did I live anywhere that changed time twice in one year. Ten years and one more state later, I still struggle with it.

When I realized this morning that it was actually 10:30 am and not 9:30 am, I zoomed around the house (seriously...sound effects and everything) changing the clocks (much to the hub's amusement) and spent the entire day feeling like I was trying to catch up.

Therefore, it seems like the perfect time for a meme. I was tagged by mymuseandi and thought that I'd actually tag some others this time; usually I just leave it as a meme-free-for-all.  Not that I think anyone will see this with the kooky way LJ has been with alerts lately.

The rules:

1. People who have been tagged write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.
2. Tag eight people. Don't tag who tagged you.

I am tagging... a_phoenixdragon   deangirl1   novembersguest wynefred  erinrua  erikaaoi jennierenee  (Happy early B-day by the way) and kjfri 

No worries either way if you don't want to play, gals. Anyone else who wants to play, feel free.

1. Make a list of 5 things that you see without getting up. 

Empty water glass, six pics of Mo Chuisle and my hubs, two pics of Dean Winchester, a camera, a Ball jar filled with ink pens

2. How do you Style your hair? 

Short, parted on the side, tucked behind my ears.

3. What are you wearing now? 

Gray sweats, black T-shirt, the hub's hoodie

4. What do you hear right now?  

Mo Chuisle's baby monitor playing Celtic lullabies

5. What is/was for dinner? 

Steak, broccoli, mashed potatoes, water, and Cabernet

6. What did you do today?

Missed church because of DST, changed the clocks, worked on the final chapter of On the Surface, took Mo Chuisle grocery shopping, made dinner, watched Narnia with Mo Chuisle, and now I'm on the computer.

7. Dog person or cat person? 
Dogs all the way.

8. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to? 
Hmmm.... something with an "a" sound at the end of it so that when it's called, I still respond. Like... Tessa or Maura or Brenna. Though I really don't look like any of those names.

9. What was the last thing you bought? 
A week's worth of groceries. I think a six-pack of paper towels was the last to run over the scanner.

10. Favorite band/musician?

Oh, this isn't fair. I can't narrow down to one. So often I go by mood. But for the sake of simplicity, I'll go with Led Zeppelin. When all else fails, they don't.

11. Favorite book?
To Kill a Mockingbird.

12. What are you doing this weekend?

Alas, this weekend is nearly over. I hope to be asleep before it officially ends. Next weekend holds a tea party with Mo Chuisle and several of her pre-school friends, cleaning of the house (oi! the dog hair!) and writing. Four hours of writing every weekend. :)

13. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?

Violin. Oh, that sound stirs my soul.

Or the guitar.

14. How are you?

Want the standard answer I give everyone? "Good, thanks! How are you?"

15.What are you doing tomorrow?

Work. And then some work. And probably a little more work. And then hugging on my girl and my man. And then writing. And probably some sleep after that.

16.What are you looking forward to the most?

What a broad question! I'm looking forward to having time to write. I'm looking forward to seeing Mo Chuisle's smile in the morning. I'm looking forward to the Three Musketeers going to CO for a little family time this May. I'm looking forward to soccer season starting. I'm looking forward to our show coming back. I'm looking forward to taking Mo Chuisle to see Toy Story 3 on ice.... lots of stuff. :)

All right then. That does it for me.
