Bedtime: 11:00 pm
Alarm: 6:00 am
Okay, so this morning the alarm went off and I very deliberately thought, “What difference does five minutes make? I’m hitting that button!!!” So I hit that button. I thought. Thirty minutes later, I rolled over and squinted at the clock. 6:30?! The alarm didn’t go off again! And now I am late…
I am left with two options. One, the snooze function on the alarm on my brand new phone does not work. Two, instead of snooze, in my stupor, I hit dismiss. Personally, I like option one better. I’ll have to investigate today.
It figures, too. I was doing so well – nineteen days in a row! And then I lost it. And, of course, this morning I am on a schedule. I need to get the second half of my Western blot done this morning so I can leave before noon to go to Indianapolis for a meeting for the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association. I’ll still make it, but it will be tight. A 60-minute incubation in secondary antibody only goes so fast!
Yesterday I whined (yes, I whined) about how late the sun comes up in the Lafayette area. Today I am going to whine about how late the sun goes down in the Lafayette area. Last night, 8:00 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time, and the sun was still up. Oh, it was going down, sure, but it hadn’t quite made it yet. Seriously? It’s 8:00 at night, in March, and it’s still daylight? This is ridiculous. That is one of the things that used to drive me nuts when I lived in Lafayette. Come June and July, it will be light until 10:00-10:30 at night. That is crazy.
