About a year ago I stopped using our clock radio as an alarm.
It just kept forgetting to go off!
Not a good thing when you have to get up at a certain time to get
the kids on the bus or for the Colonel to leave for his drive
back down to Ft. Dix after he's been home for a few days.
So I started using my cell phone.
It ALWAYS goes off.
It's the perfect alarm clock.
I have it set to go off at 5:50 and then 5:59.
Usually by the 5:59, I am up and ready to tackle the world!
Okay, back to reality...
This past Saturday I knew I could sleep a little later than 5:59.
I was so out of it Saturday morning.
Can anyone relate to that?
I mean, I was in a deep sleep when the first alarm went off at 5:50.
So I decided to hold the phone, yes, hold it in my hand
and for some STRANGE reason, I had my hand up by my ear.
Maybe I was dreaming I was talking on the phone to the Colonel!
I'm sure you all can imagine what happened next.
The alarm goes of at 5:59...
RIGHT IN MY EAR...
SCARING ME HALF TO DEATH...
I JUMPED OUT OF BED!
I never jump out of bed.
I didn't even think my body COULD jump out of bed.
Needless to say there was no more sleeping going on and
no more dreaming that
I was on the phone with the Colonel.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
