seriously. how much more of a punk can you be than to take away an hour of sleep?
not to mention that i have to methodically go through the house and change a billion clocks. i never realize how many clocks i have in the good ole condo until i have to change the time. i have 9 clocks. 9! and one in the car…so 10 clocks total. and heaven forbid that i forget to change one, like i did. this morning, after losing an hour of sleep (curse you spring forward!), i was so confused because 2 of them didn’t match up. now kids, i am not a morning person. not in the slightest bit. i am grumpy. i am groggy. and i generally hate everything and everyone. just ask my mom, i chucked many an alarm clock at her when she’d wake me up for school (in my defense, i was 1/2 asleep when i did this. i would never chuck an alarm clock at her if i was fully awake. i love my mom, she’s awesome).
so lost an hour of sleep. confusing, mismatched clocks. and a general sense of confusion. all of these things contributed to me mis-reading my schedule and thinkin i opened. which i didn’t. and i realized this when i was already half way to work. dammit! my work isn’t very close to my condo. i live in OKC, work in north edmond…a good 30 min drive, 20 if i’m feeling extra speedy.
so what do i do? do i just bite the bullet and go into work? do i run errands? do i sip a coffee at a *oh the horror* starbucks?
fuck no. i turned the car around and went back home. i put back on the pjs and carefully draped my work clothes over the chair so they wouldn’t wrinkle. and me & mr bix crawled back into bed for an extra hour of sleep.
my conclusion: spring forward is only worth it if it’s a bright and sunny day with nothing to do. especially if i have a super cute sun dress on and am going to a picnic or chillin with friends on the porch.
a fancy pants picnic paired with this…
…then i’m cool with the whole “spring foward” thing
otherwise, thanks…but no thanks. i’ll take that hour of sleep back. thanks.
