1 Hour Early

Those of you who know me, know that I am always right on time for everything. Never early and hardly ever late... just, right on time!
Yesterday started like any other morning, I set the alarm for my usual 6:20am. I then hit snooze, just once. I do this every morning. It is my way of tricking myself into thinking that I am actually getting more sleep than I should! So when the alarm goes off again at 6:29, I get up, head down the hall to wake up Matthew who is snoring away. He rises, tells me how tired he is and heads for the bathroom.
I grab his clothes and meet him in the kitchen (that's where he dresses every morning). He gets all ready to walk out the door and says, "What time is it?" I glance at the clock and it reads 5:37... That's right folks, not only was I an hour early for the bus but my 8 year old was standing at the front door, 1 HOUR EARLY!!!
I removed the backpack from his arms and put him back to bed... Told him I would wake him in an hour!! Poor thing!

I hate Day Light Savings time!!


  1. That is too funny! I couldn't believe it Monday morning when I was cooking breakfast at 6:55...I usually get around to that about 8:00 - WOW. Mine are too little for school, so thankfully they weren't ready for the bus - my oldest would probably have started crying!
