Dear Internal Clock:
I am truly appreciative on all the times you dragged my tired ass out of the bed at the butt-crack of dawn. And I really do think it’s amazing how you can wake me up even if I WANT to sleep in.
But we really do need to have a little chat about which days you are NOT supposed to wake me. To make it a little easier for you, here’s a short list (although not a list in it’s entirety):
1. Weekends ~ Just so you’re clear, that means SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. I would really like to sleep until at least 7:00 am.
2. Holidays ~ This would include all the days that are listed on the calendar in the pretty colors and are usually followed by the word ‘Holiday’.
3. SNOW DAYS ~ This is for the once-every-3-years snow storm we have in the south where there is an actual danger on the road AND for the times school is delayed or cancelled because there was a snowflake spotted 48 miles up the mountain from my house.
Just so we are clear, Dear Internal Clock, please please please please please let me sleep til……7:00 ? Is that too much to ask? How about once a year you let me sleep til 8:00?
That just doesn’t seem like too much to ask, does it?
PS ~ if you DON’T start letting me sleep a little later, I’m gonna start feeding you yucky things and withhold chocolate for days at a time. This is a real threat and if it goes another step further, we’ll have to seriously start talking about withholding tequila, rum and vodka and that WILL NOT be a pretty site. Got It? Good. Dammit.
