Weird Morning

Every morning I set two alarms. I set my radio to go off at 5am (to His Radio, WRTP) as the preferred time I like to get up. I also set a clock to go off at 6am as the absolute latest I like to wake up and also as an emergency should something go wrong with my first alarm. That has happened on few occasions. Twice I forgot to set one and didn’t wake up to the other, resulting in a mad scramble to get to work on time. In both of those situations I was thankful I woke with enough time to get ready and not well after I was supposed to be at work.

This morning was a different story. I work Tuesday through Saturday. While a day off, I still like to get up early for Sunday, some days sleeping a little later if I feel like I need it. Monday is the only day I have the alarms completely off. Last night I made sure to turn both alarms back on, but I didn’t pay enough attention that the time was way off on my radio. Somehow the time on it got reset. I’m pretty sure it happened either Friday or early Saturday morning because I remember not waking up to my radio on Saturday. This morning I woke to my radio with the thought it was 5am. I turned my computer on, logged in, and went to the bathroom to take a shower. After my shower, I went to make a cup of coffee when I noticed the time on my stove and microwave read 2:55am. Confused, I checked my cell phone, my other alarm clock, and then my computer. All of them read the same time as the stove and the microwave.I laughed to myself, fixed my radio and went back to bed to get what little sleep I could get between 3am and 5am.

When I woke up at 5am for real, I repeated my morning routine. I had a tired morning because of what happened, but I felt better as the day went on. Normally, sleep irregularities don’t affect me until the day after. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
