Daylight Savings What?!?

This morning we woke up on time, got ready for church and headed out the door. As we were leaving the student housing parking lot I noticed that all of our church friends who normally leave for church at the same time that we do, were already gone. I looked at the clock and it said 8:34a.m., I thought "it's only 8:30, we're not late" and the it dawned on me......Daylight Savings! Yep you guessed it, we had totally forgotten to "Spring Forward" and turn our clocks ahead one hour. So needless to say, we were very, very late for church. Now for those of you that know me well, you know that for me, being late is not an option. I tend to freak out if we aren't at least 10 min early to church on Sunday. In fact, this is only the second time in our 13 year marriage that we have been late to church. This is how CRAZY I truly am! Yes, I know I have a problem OK! But this morning I just laughed and laughed. I couldn't believe that we had totally spaced it and were that late! John was so happy that I was laughing and not freaking. It turns out that we weren't the only ones that forgot to "Spring Forward" in our ward. Oops.....Oh well!

I saw your blog on Brooke's & thought, "That name sounds familiar..." so I had to check it out. You probably don't remember me, but you guys were my Sunday school teachers in 10th ward when you were newlyweds! (Aw, the good ol' days.) I disliked Sunday school in my teen years, but you made it interesting... & what's funny is I totally had my payback. When Austin & I were newlyweds (5 1/2 years ago), we were assigned as Sunday school teachers to a bunch of teenagers & it was the hardest calling ever!
