Ok, friends….I have to laugh..
Yesterday, I dropped the hubby off at the airport and hurried back to the ranch to begin cleaning. We had tracked in so much mud and grass over the weekend, and I decided I would wait to clean once the house was empty.
After a qiuck trip to the grocery store, I drove back home. The time was about 2:30. Somewhere in the next few hours….I totally lost track of time…..no, really….
To back up a bit, the electricity flickers on and off often, which means that all the clocks reset. Here’s where the problem began…
I have a digital clock in the bedroom, a battery clock in the den and use the microwave clock in the kitchen. The clock in the bedroom automatically resets itself when there is an outage, so that is the one I always check, and since I was a busy little bee, cleaning, I was too lazy to check my cell phone.
After cleaning, I looked at the clock and saw it was 8:30 pm and decided I had enough for the day. I started getting ready for my shower, because I was beat. By the time I finished, it was 9:30 and I thought to myself, ‘Wow…I’m starving,’ but I never eat dinner after 6:00 pm, so I just decided to lay in bed and read my book.
Occasionally, I would hear my computer ‘ding’ so I would check my email, and look at the clock. It was 9:30 pm and was really bright outside! I read for a while longer, then looked at the clock and thought….’How crazy! The sun is still out and its 10:30 at night!!’ Oh well, it was time to sleep and I was sleepy.
I woke up sooo many times during the night, thinking it was time to get up but my clock said differently. Finally, at 7:30 this morning, I opened my eyes and thought, ‘hmm…it’s still dark.”
Ok, bottom line….The clock reset to a different time zone and I was THREE HOURS off!! I actually went to bed at 7:30pm, and eventually woke up at 4:30 am…..sigh…..
I could eat a horse right now….
