Musings from the Laundromat: Time Hop & Front Load edition

I woke at 7 this morning and spent a few minutes fighting my bladder in a battle to remain horizontal and wondering why the hell it was still so dark?

The weather forecast had said it would be hot all weekend.  Couldn’t be clouds.

I lost my battle with my bladder and got up.  Shuffled into the living room and grabbed Butters leash.  Outside we went and I was still confused.

So dark.  No cloud coverage.

Odd.

After our little walk and back inside, I noticed the rest of the clocks in the house.

6:12 a.m.  Six???

My ‘Smart’ alarm clock has been guilty of these shenanigans before.

On random occasions it decides to try out its little time zone gadget and flip about for no apparent reasons.

This latest warping of time is odd for 2 reasons:

1) The time change in the States happened LAST weekend.

2) The state I live in doesn’t even OBSERVE fore mentioned time changes.

*sigh*

I was up so I checked in on the latest and greatest on Facebook and there it was – “First Day of Spring”

I guess my clock was celebrating.  Hopping forward in a confusion of digital excitement?

I lay back down after correcting its display and immediately fell back to sleep.

8:03.  Eyes popped open to realize I was in very real danger of missing out on my favorite washing machines!

I literally only ran a brush through my hair and threw some clothes on and here I am.

With my laundry in 2 damn front load machines … Again.

This happened last weekend too. (No, not the time warp, but the greedy grabbing of the top loads before my arrival.)

I dislike the front loads because A) They’re more expensive per load and B) My little laundry sprinkles fall through the holes and gawd only knows where they go.

Well – the machine hogging snow birds shall be flying back to their homes for the Summer soon and all will be back to normal.

Well, as normal as things get around here.
