What did you do with your 1 extra hour this weekend?
I started to think ahead of time,
what would be a good way to spend an extra hour Saturday night?
If I came up with a good idea, I could share it on my blog.
Maybe read a good book? I have several I have started reading.
Clean the guest bathroom? We have company coming next week.
Write a great blog post? People might be awake looking for something to read.
Listen to some of my favorite music? I haven’t played my Francesca Battistelli CD in a while.
Go for a walk? I don’t walk enough.
(Of course, I wouldn’t do any of these things at 2am. I would do them Saturday night, after changing the clocks back one hour, but before I go to bed.)
So what did I do? None of these.
As I was trying to change the time on my alarm clock,
my husband said I didn’t need to do that, because it would change automatically at 2am.
Glad to know this, because I could not figure out how to change the time on my clock!
(Did you know that some clocks can only have the time changed when the year, month & date are updated first? Crazy! Who needs to change the year on their clock? Somehow I changed the year on my clock to 2027!)
So, just like every year, my husband and I went to sleep. Yep.
I didn’t want to stay up until 2am to watch the clock change,
giving me my 1 precious extra hour.
Tiredness took over my decision,
making sleep the best choice.
I got into bed and after talking with my husband a short while, we promptly fell asleep.
After all, most of us don’t get enough sleep.
Maybe that really is the best way to spend our 1 extra hour each fall.
Or maybe you found a better way!
Would you share with us in comments, how you spent your extra hour this weekend?
We would love to know what you did.
(Please don’t tell me you ate all your kid’s Halloween candy!)
Also, just for kicks, how long did it take you to change all your clocks?
For us it was about 15 minutes.
Some clocks we had to get out the owners’ manual to change the time.
(The next time we buy a clock, we really need to get one with a simple dial.
Simple really is better.)
So this morning, I do feel more rested and awake.
This makes me glad I opted for an extra hour of sleep.
So, how did you spend your extra hour?
