Alarm Tip of the Day
For those of you that still use the old fashion mechanisms to wake up in the morning as I do. You may want to rethink your choice and here is why. This week it is extremely important for me to put in hours at work because of weekend company (and weekend here meaning Friday afternoon.) So I put my trust in the clock radio sitting on my dresser that it will wake me up each and every morning. Well, the alarm clock is utterly worthless if the power goes out (as it did last night while I was sleeping.) So I had no idea that my alarm was out of commission until this morning when I woke to birds chirping and sunshine beaming through the window – what…sunshine that can’t be right...I should get up when it is still pretty dark out! A quick look at a blinking 12:00 on the alarm makes me aware of the situation…power outage and therefore no alarm and an unexpected sleep in, which messes up the work week hours-wise. Geez. Well, there is a lesson hidden in all unfortunate events right? Don’t be so reliant on electricity; you never know what may happen in the middle of the night! Use those cell phone alarms, battery powered alarms and such…you won’t regret it!
