Internal clocks can bite me….


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.


  1. Funny as hell! Glad I found you through the comment section on my blog. If you’re waking up that early, it’s because that cheater Mr. Insomnia leaves my house in the early a.m. after he’s had his way with me. Add a few more margaritas to your diet—you might actually get to sleep until 7:00am…..
