Like everyone, there are 2 times of the year that suck for us. Daylight Savings Time. You get in your routine, and then just when you are adjusted to it, boom....time changes again. But since it's fall, we seem to get an extra hour of sleep. Not the case AT ALL!!
I don't know what it's like to have kids, well not yet. So our kids in our house are out dogs. If you didn't realize, DOGS CAN'T TELL TIME!!! I don't want to be like Oprah and try to compare being a dog owner to being a parent....I know there is no comparison. But here is how it goes down in our house with daylight savings time.
4:36am Wake up
5:05am 2nd alarm
5:15am out the door
5:30am at the office
blah blah blah, so when I get up that early and we fall back an hour it sucks.
This Sunday morning was no different. Well it was the weekend but the body gets what the body wants. So I get up at when my clock said 6am. But it was freaking 5am. At that point I felt like I had already slept in. But nope....it's freaking 5am. So it looks like I have an extra hour. We've had a sick dog, so he didn't get up when I did like normal. So it was just me, all alone. Wifey to my right, and dogs on the floor to the left. I'm laying in bed staring at the ceiling, wanting to grab the remote to turn the TV on, but why wake everyone up just because I am. So I lay there, looking at the ceiling, trying to figure out what to do with my 'Extra Hour'. DAMN YOU daylight savings time!!
Finally I say screw this. I slip out of bed, leaving the sleeping wife, the Handi-Capable weiner dog, and the sick lab in the bedroom. I make my way to our living room to try to figure out what to do with myself. My body thinks I slept in, the clock tells me I'm a liar. I could bust out the PS3 and play NBA2K13, but then when I scream at the TV, that would wake everyone up. No dice on that. What the hell am I going to do? I turn the tv on, watch KFOR to see what the weather was going to be like for my day of golfing I have planned ahead. Going to be a nice day, but it's still early and everyone else is asleep. Dang it.
I finally decided just to say screw it and turn on the PS3. Maybe pass some time paying a game till everyone else in the house wakes up. By this time, Carson (that's my sick lab, he seems to be getting better thanks for asking) comes walking out into the living room. I turn on the PS3, 'Max Payne 3' it is. If you don't know, lots of shooting, lots of cursing, very noisy. At this point I'm ready to invite the others in my house to my hell. If I'm awake now, everyone else needs to be. Volume Up!!! Carson didn't like that at all, he goes back to the bedroom. Hops on the bed, waking the wife up, which causes the handicapable weiner dog to bark, my goal is achieved. Everyone in the house is up. Yay!! Wait, now it's a pain in the butt for me.
By the time all this is said and done, dogs needed food, wife got up and got ready, and now she's expecting breakfast. Extra hour my a$$, now I'm stuck footing the bill for breakfast. Moral of the story...just when you think that you have an extra hour of 'Free Time', it could end up costing you. Breakfast was $13.00, I feel cheated Daylight Savings time!!
So what did you do with your extra hour?? Comment below and lets chat about it. I'm sure yours was better then mine. LOL -Jrod
