How do you wake up in the morning?

I have a question about something that has really been bugging me. Have you noticed that people who *live* in magazines, blogs, and decorating shows never have an alarm clock or clock radio on their bedside table? What's up with that? Do they not have to get up early? Do they just sleep until their body wakes up and never have to worry about getting a late start to their day? Do they never wake up in the middle of the night and wonder what time it is?

Below are some photographs I've run across lately. Most are pretty nice rooms, a few make me go , but in every one I'm wondering .... where's the ding-a-ling clock?
maybe those are talking photos in the frames and they yell "get up lazy-butt" when the time is right?

room for flowers but no alarm clock?

you'd think with all the crap stuff on this table they would have managed to  add a clock
maybe they hide one in the drawers? 

this room is so crazy LOUD with color and pattern I doubt anyone could fall asleep in it anyway
So, what's on your bedside table? Please tell me I'm not the only one with one of these 


  1. LOL, get this, we EACH have one on our nightstands and also when I have to be extra sure to wake up earlier than normal I set the alarm on my cell phone too (which by the way makes a quacking duck sound loud enough to wake the whole neighborhood.) Now luckily...I don't have to set it most mornings and get up around 7.

  2. I don't have an alarm clock, Sherri; I use my cell phone, which sleeps on my bed right next to me...

  3. I don't know where they keep them, but those non-existent ones probably work just as well as the 3 which go off in my house every morning - only 1 of which actually manages to rouse anyone (and did I mention it's the quietest one!). The other 2 only serve to stress Mom out to the point that the owners of said clocks are in mortal danger.

  4. I want the second room. There is an alarm clock on Corky's side, but, the time is not set. However, I am one of those people that sleeps until I wake up. It's getting pretty bad, so after Corky leaves again I will be setting my cell phone.
