Stupid time change
I have not handled the time change very well. First, I had to work Sunday morning and was very tired when I went to bed. I remembered to change the alarm clock but in the wrong direction, so instead of getting up at 7:30 I got up at 5:30. NOT a good beginning to my day. Of course I had to stay up then because I don't sleep well anyway and once I wake it is all over. I thought Sunday night I would sleep great because I had been up since 5:30, but no. Woke up off and on all night, ended up get up out of bed about a quater to 6. I had my coffee, did the Facebook thing, fed the dog, walked the dog, started laundry. About that time the coffee must have kicked in because I called my neighbor to tell her to come over and have her coffee here. I wanted to talk to her about taking her Christmas card photo. I had all these brilliant ideas that just came to me. When I called I was surprised no one answered the phone, it went straight to the answering machine. I left a message to call me and about 10 minutes later the phone ring. It was her wondering if everything was alright and what had happened. I called her without looking at the time since I had been up for what seemed like hours I figured she had to be up to. She was not. I got to laughing and saying how sorry I was to wake her, ususally she is up before me. I had no idea I called her before 7, and she thought something terrible must have happened. So here she is on the phone listening to me go on and on asking her to come over and talk about the photo for Christmas, good neighbor that she is she just let me go on.
She did come over and all those great ideas I thought I had I could tell as she is sipping her morning cup of coffee, she didn't think they were that great. The look on her face as I scratch one idea after another off my list was priceless. Maybe I should start keeping those GREAT ideas to myself from now on or at least wait till later in the day when I have had time to think it over.
But isn't it nice to have a neighbor who will run right over and give you those looks. You know you have a friend.
