Bleary eyes

So, I've been using my fancy IPod Ryan bought me for Christmas to wake me up in the mornings, because; 1. My phone has been giving me trouble and 2. It makes prettier sounds. I have my normal work schedule alarms set, but this week Thursday and Friday we don't have school. Instead we're hosting this big early childhood conference where I work, ECMC. Therefore, I don't have to wake up until six. Sweet!

So, my alarm goes off this morning, sweet chiming bells. I groan and turn it off, naturally. I don't check the time, but lay in bed for about seven minutes then drag myself out to the kitchen. I make a bowl of cereal and eat it with my orange juice. I then make coffee. As I was opening my new can of coffee, and tearing off that fancy aroma seal, I glanced at the clock wondering what time it was. The clock said 5:37. B'escuse me (I say this as a contraction between the words "but" and "excuse" me. My own concoction). My alarm wasn't supposed to go off until six...

I stand there in the kitchen, coffee container open, spilled coffee grounds on the counter, because it's 5:37 instead of 6:10. I finally put the pieces together and remember, I set a new alarm, but didn't turn the usual ones off. HA. Bummer. No wonder my eyes weren't focusing when I woke up. So, I went back to the dark bedroom and snuggled up with the dog to sleep for twenty more minutes.

Funny story.

how do you not look at the clock before getting out of bed? hasn't this happened to you before in high school and/or college?
