Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


I Woke Up Before My Alarm

I set my alarm to wake me up at 8:45am this morning because I had church and wanted to make sure we got up and had a good breakfast and arrived on time.

I woke up at 7am. More than an hour before my alarm was supposed to go off!  Um WHAT!! I want to sleep. My body refused to go back to sleep and not only that my kids were up and peeing!

I looked at my phone and at the clocks and it finally dawned on me that it was actually the day/night for one hour fall back. *Roll eyes*

I simply do not understand this US tradition or why it's necessary.

Just let the time be as is should.

Anyway I still got to church late. I swear, late is in my genes! Oy!

Did you remember to fall back?


1.  Are you excited for the holidays or are you dreading them?

I'm neutral. I just get annoyed that they holidays don't stay in their months. I like taking things slow. I know it's coming and I let it come and try not to get overwhelmed or over stimulated with too much. 

2.  Do you hit the snooze button or get right up?
Some days I jump up and have to stand still to get my body righted. Other mornings I'm slapping that snooze to the nth seconds before I absolutely have to get up! 

3.  Do you still have your tonsils? 

I assume so. I don't remember having a problem with them.  Actually I've only heard of anyone having problems with tonsils after coming to the USA. 

4.  What was the last piece of candy that you ate?

These: :) My faves 

5.  Do you shop at thrift stores?
OH YES! I wish I knew more but I only shop at two right now.  I rarely go , but I'm about to go find some winter jackets for the kiddies.

  1. Oh I know how you feel - this changing clocks thing throws me off for days!!!

    I don't get it either. I wish we could be like Arizona and keep our clocks the same year round :)

  2. That one hour fall back - they also did it in the UK when I was there in 2006 and the more I was confused. Here for Monday's Music. Will come back when it's up. Have a nice day.

  3. I remembered but my body did like yours is doing. I'm getting tired and waking up based on last week! Also, I'm hungry too early now. I'm making myself wait though because eventually I gotta get used to this, right?

  4. I hate the time change. My son has such a hard time adjusting to that and frankly so do I. I would pay money to be able to sleep late. My kids wake up so early.

  5. I hate waking up before the alarm clock goes off. It drives me insane. That's precisely what happened this morning, too. I was awake a whole thirty minutes before it was time to get up. I kept my eyes closed until just five before that dreaded beep sound. Ugh! Oooo, like chocolate covered nuts. However macadamias are some of my least favorites. They are too bland to suit my taste buds. Thanks for visiting today!
