I have that fancy duel alarm system. You know, you can set one alarm for one time and then the other for a different time. It’s been a pretty handy tool, especially since school has started.
Well, I hate to say it, but my alarms were on the fritz this morning. The first one went off around six thirty (which obviously, is waaayyy to early). I gave the ol’ snooze a try, but it still didn’t turn off. I was a little freaked out at first, but after a few minutes, I realized that thing has a mind of its own, and I shouldn’t fight it. So I left it alone, and it shut right off. I didn’t even think to check the other alarm to make sure it would go off in time to get me up and going and ready to get the kids off to school.
Sure enough, that second alarm didn’t make a peep until it was entirely too late. I jumped out of bed, got Gimme a pop tart and we headed to school (we were only a few minutes late…).
I just may have to go back to the old fashion alarm clock, that you plug into the wall. It might be a little more reliable.
I don’t think I can return this duel system. They’re just too cute!
