I live in France so I'm going to grab some old french book to do this with. So classy.

Flowering Spring Branches

I grew up in Florida. Every month or so there's a story on the evening news about a dead kid in a swimming pool (even now). Sometimes it's as quick as the time it takes to sing happy birthday and blow out the candles on the cake. I've also been an au pair, and I know how much three year olds like to play with water and how much they dont foresee consequences.

Wow, I'm so jealous of most of these solutions, but none of them will work for me. My husband is allergic to cats and we have different sleep schedules. He's a light sleeper who needs the room to be silent and completely black (I've started keeping the shutters opened a bit so I can even see when I need to wake up, but he now asks me to close them when I leave so the room will be pitch-black for the rest of the morning). I'm a heavy sleeper that can boast having slept through hurricanes, hail, and hours of blaring alarms (they become light-houses in my dreams). What's worse, his work shifts are changing but can include night shifts so he really needs to sleep. I'm going to try that whole practicing thing, I hope that'll help.
10 Tips for Making Winter Wake-Ups Easier

This is funny since I dont get this at all. I'm actually someone who sees something expensive and nice and immediately thinks I dont need it and I see all the flaws. I have to force myself to buy things, and even then, I'm guilty of great splurge dresses, that I do wear, but no belts, earrings, cardigans, shoes, etc to match. But my office is surrounded by designer fashion (I work in Paris near the Champs-Elysees), so while I see lots of Vogue-style clothes, they dont look as good in real-life when your speed-walking on dog-poo dotted sidewalks on your way to the Metro.
