clockwork red

So, I've been having serious issues ever since the time changed ( or, rather, since I returned home from Spring Break and had to change my clocks)...it seems that I'd subconsciously created a very delicate balance of "time" within my home-where bedroom and kitchen clocks worked together ( at different time...the kitchen being faster than the bedroom) to get me to work on time, without getting me out of bed too soon...truly a time-balance worth striving and achieving.

WELL, let me just tell you, that at some point during my clock changing extravaganza of March 2007, I upset this intricate infrastructure of time and all this week i have been getting up a good FIVE MINUTES before I actually need to. And let me just tell you, its horrible.

I mean, there is possible NOTHING worse than standing at your front door-completely clothed and washed-looking remotely ready for some sort of a day, with a mug of coffee in one hand and a breakfastonthego in the other-only to realize that you really don't need to leave your house for another 4 minutes and 56 seconds.
It is then that the cold reality creeps over you as the realization that you could have actually BEEN ASLEEP for that 4 minutes and 56 seconds but instead you're going to just drive to work a little slower..Its a horrible moment.

I wish it upon no man.

So, this morning I re-set my alarm clock's time in the hopes to restore right within my home. Here's hoping I got it right, because let me tell you, I am REALLY feeling the 24 minutes that I did not sleep because of this dreaful problem.
