Linky Strikes Again

Monday morning:

Alarm goes off at 5am, I snooze.

Alarm goes off at 5:15, I snooze.

Alarm goes off at 5:30, I turn it off, roll over to get up, I fall back asleep.

I wake up with a start at 6:08!

Crap! I overslept! I'm supposed to be out the door no later than 6:15.

I rush, and I rush, and I fly out of the house at 6:34...super late!

I ask the Lord for traveling mercies and make my way to work.

I get ready to hit the highway, and a thought occurs to me, "Didn't we turn the clocks? Why is it so dark?"

That's when I peep the dashboard clock...


It makes absolutely no sense to go back home. I'll just go in early. That time of day there was no traffic and I was outside my job at 6:01am.

This was the first time I've ever seen my school so dark. I waited for the custodian to come in and light up the building and then waited for at least another human being which ended up being a dean.

Now, rewind to last night and I'll tell you how Linky was involved...

...I vaguely recall saying something to the effect of, "Link stop standing up and playing by mommy's headboard!"

My clock was an hour ahead!

Sigh. Good news? I got a lot of work done this morning. Bad news? I surely could have used that extra hour of sleep!

You asked for traveling mercies, and in a way, you got it!
