|thought you all might get a chuckle from this. I sure did.
On my husband's side of the bed he has an alarm clock. He had two alarms set that would start at 5:45 and the next at 6:45 to get him up for work. I never needed an alarm, I naturally wake at 6:45 or so. I would give him a nudge when they went off, because he would let them go forever and wake me out of sleep.
Since he's been gone, I have turned off the alarm clock, because as I said.. I dont need them to get up. And to be honest.. I dont sleep much anyway. The alarm has not gone off in over 5 months.
I was meeting some friends today at an event, and was planning on getting up about 7:30 to start getting ready to go. I didnt really want to go, today is a hard day for me because it has been 6 months since my husband walked out the door to go to work for the last time. Today marks the 6 month anniversary for the starting of my new life.
Needless to say, I didnt feel like doing much, but I made a promise and I had to keep it.
At 6:45 this morning, the alarm clock went off. It brought me out of my sleep and for a moment.. I forgot my "new life". I awoke and just laughed and told my husband, "OK, I'm getting up..I'm getting up."
It just struck me as funny and make me laugh.
He was totally nudging me to get up and get going.
