John and I made it through April Fool’s Day relatively unscathed. That ‘renaming the Big 10 conference’ thing was rather funny. I’ll email it to anyone who hasn’t read it. But no, John and I were still duped. Not by a funny joke or a trick, but by an event that happens once every year. We completely forgot to ‘spring forward’. Apparently, no one I work or spend time with likes to talk about daylight savings time during the preceding week. the only clue I had that it was coming was a conversation i had at work on easter weekend. They were like, no, no, it’s not tomorrow, it’s the weekend after Easter. and that was it. That’s all i got. no reminders throughout the week, the radio people really let me down. nothing. The item that let me know we had erred was when I checked my cell phone as we were heading out the door to go to church. Yes, you might ask, we WERE dressed and ready to go, had just eaten breakfast and i looked at my cell phone. Then i just started laughing becuase, i realized how less funny it would’ve been to find this out as we pulled into church and realized the service was half over. There were plenty of clues and opportunities for us to catch this ahead of time, we just didn’t see them. There was the 7am phone call from the lady in charge of the bowling league to tell us there was no bowling today. (Who in there right mind would call someone at 7am, unless it was actually 8am). Then, we went to bed at 2am after reading all night, the cable box would’ve surely changed the time by then. After that, though, we didn’t have a chance. Nothing in the bedroom has any self-setting timer in it. So yeah. We missed church becuase we forgot about daylight savings time. And i’d even ironed my linen skirt. Hey, at least it got us out of bed.
