I spent the first three hours of today believing my cell phone when it told me the time.
Alas, my cell phone failed to spring forward at 2 a.m. which explains why I lollygagged in bed until 10 a.m. because I thought it was really only 9 a.m. Actually, now it all seems confusing and foggy, but doesn’t the time change always seem that way for a few days at least?
I’m not sure where the day went . . . after church and lunch, I took my oldest son shopping for sandals, read the Sunday newspaper, worked some, then took the puppy and my daughter to see the sunset.
But halfway there, I could see that the giant cloud-bank would block the view. We continued on anyway, and took the puppy for a jaunt on the sidewalk that runs along the beach. Even though the cloud blotted out the sun, the ocean shimmered and we were happy to be there.
The sun set at almost 7 p.m.–not that we could see it.
Now it’s time to make yet another school lunch and head to bed so I can start another week.

I’m finding that there’s a definite pattern to time change sundays. I’ve been doing spring forward for 40 some years now and every year I forget to change the clock until I get up and then I spend the day sort of scratching my head and chasing my tail (or at least that’s how it feels) wondering where the day went. You’d think after all this time I’d have it figured out? Maybe next year. . . .?
I missed church yesterday, because I was not looking at the clock that had been set ahead. Then today, I went to the bank at (the clock said…) 4:45 p.m. and couldn’t figure out why the bank closed early. Duh! This is so confusing for me – every single time, twice a year, I can’t figure out how to change the clock in the car – I have to go over to the passenger side of the car, reach underneath the seat, then search the chapter headings to find instructions on changing the clock. And each time I do, I think – “wow – that was SO simple – next time I’ll automatically know how to do it!” NOT. Apparently, it’s not that simple!
And it sounds so strange to hear you went shopping for sandals – when I came home tonight, it was snowing! Guess it’s still winter here. Brrr
My phone thought it was still Sunday when it was really Monday (the day after the time change). It was super annoying since none of my 12 alarms went off… oh, and weird that it did that too.
