Visiting Grandparents

    Our weekend was full.
    It started when my alarm clock jangled me awake at 3:00 AM on Saturday morning, and we got up and hurried to get ready to go visit LV's parents.
    The children were excited to get to see their grandparents once again, so instead of being sleepy and groggy that early in the morning there was an air of eager anticipation as we prepared to leave.
    The traveling was uneventful, and we arrived safely and were warmly welcomed into their home.
    Our time there was spent laughing, talking, eating Grandma's delicious food, playing games in their basement, and taking pictures of her beautiful flowers. All in all it was a wonderful time that we all enjoyed.

     Fast forward to this morning, my alarm clock jangles me awake, and I get up to go about my morning routine. Once I took care of that I headed to the kitchen to start the coffee and blinked in confusion when I saw the clock on the stove had only 3:12. I checked the other clocks and they all agreed with it, and then it dawned on me that I had forgotten to reset my alarm clock to the proper time after we got home.
      I decided 45 minutes isn't enough to make it worthwhile going back to bed, so my day has been off to an early start.
      We'll have to see how it goes. Yawn.


  1. That is a very early start!
    How nice to hear of the welcome from your family.

  2. What a lovely day that was! But I suggest a good nap today!

  3. Bummer when you forget to reset the alarm clock.

  4. Oh my! I was also awakened by an alarm I had forgot to turn off.Good to hear that you had a great visit with family.

  5. I've done that. A few times...groan.
    Might as well stay up at that point :)

  6. I'm so glad you had a good visit. The pictures show a beautiful story of all having a wonderful time. Sorry about the alarm problem. I've done that and it's not fun.

  7. Glad you had such a lovely visit with LV's parents. Sorry about the early start because of the alarm. As you said though, it wasn't worth going back to bed for 45 minutes... By the time you got back to sleep, you'd have needed to get back up anyway, or it would have felt like it.

  8. I did the same thing last week! I don't think I will ever become friends with my alarm clock.
    Your visit sounds wonderful. So worth getting up at 3:15!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
