A Short Silly Story

I just had to share this. A silly little story that happened to me last week.

I knew daylight savings time was fast approaching.  Soon it would be time to move our clocks back an hour.  I wasn’t quite sure when we were to set the clocks back but I new it was within the next few weeks.

I woke about 3 am.  My sleep pattern has been out of wack for a couple months now so waking up at 3 wasn’t anything out of the norm.

I couldn’t fall back asleep so I made some coffee and figured I would catch up on some posts from a few of my favorite bloggers. I clicked on my WordPress app and started reading. 

Several posts were about the time change and a reminder to set the clocks back.  I didn’t realize until that exact moment that we were supposed to change our clocks that night.

Since my phone and other devices in my home automatically update the new time, I didn’t think anything else of it since there was nothing I needed to do. I ended up  falling back asleep. 

I woke a few hours later. I was surprised that I wasn’t still sleepy, considering how I was awake in the midnight hours.  I quickly remembered the time change and how I gained an extra hour of sleep. No wonder I wasn’t still tired, yay I gained an hour of needed sleep.

A couple days later I was on the phone with my mom. I brought up the time change and how that extra hour of sleep has been nice. My mom then informs me that we hadn’t changed our clocks. We don’t do so for another week.

Another week? I tell my mom we already changed the clocks, she must have her days wrong.  Because surely I can’t be wrong. But she once again explained that we did not, so I just left it at that. Not going to argue with my momma.

After we hung up I did some investigating. It turns out my mom was right. But so was I, sort of.

I first became aware of the time change while reading posts from other bloggers. Well, what I didn’t realize is the posts I was reading at that time are mainly from bloggers that live in the UK.  I live in the US.

I am 51 years old and I never knew the UK and the US did day light savings a week apart.

How funny that my mind immediately believed I wasn’t tired. How funny I felt a little refreshed by that extra hour of sleep.  The extra hour that I did not get. I went all week believing it. I wonder how I am going to feel after this weekend, when the U.S really does change the clocks back.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to smile!

  1. Hahah, funny! But weren’t you late from appointments, etc, for the few days you thought the time was 1h off? Back when I was a flight attendant, I once missed a job interview because my watch and phone were in Spanish time… and my location was not. I still remember the shock when I realized my mistake!! 😀

    1. My phone actually had the correct time. I didn’t change it because I “thought ” it already automatically updated to the correct time. So my time showed the same as everyone else. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  2. I did not realize the UK was different from us. This is a great example of just how our minds can play tricks on us. Thanks for sharing. And I trust you did enjoy the extra hour of sleep you got when the US changed time.
