I have to admit up front, that this picture took no skill or creativity, and I simply used my iPhone quickly to grab the shot. I don't have my favorite camera with me, so this week's entry to "you capture" will be more story based.
My family is currently in Las Vegas. I was there with them, until last night. My husband has extra vacation time a-go-go, I do not. He had 5 days to spare this week, I did not. So, we all drove to Vegas together on Sunday, spent 3 wonderful days relaxing, sitting by the pool, enjoying shows, sightseeing, etc. And then I flew back alone on Tuesday night.
After getting settled in back home, I crawled into bed, got quite a lot of reading in, snuggled into the pillows, and had a DREAMY nights' sleep, since kids didn't poke and kick at me all night. I woke up early and got ready with ease, since I could leave lights on, doors open and not have to tiptoe around. I got in the car early, and headed off to work. I was proud of myself for not being rushed.
As I looked around as I drove down the street towards the freeway, traffic seemed especially heavy for 6:30am. Normally I don't share the road with anyone. And, I wasn't making any of the traffic lights like I normally do.
Wait a minute....
It's not, 6:30, it's 7:30!!!!
I had acclimated to daylight savings time 4 days ago in Vegas, but I never changed my alarm clock at home! Talk about panic...I start work at 7!
Turns out it was no big deal, my boss was cool and everyone got a good chuckle. But seriously, I'm 34 and I still mess up DST.
