You Know Its Going To Be An ‘Interesting’ Day

When it begins like this:

Your alarm clock goes off. Half asleep, you reach out towards the night table, grabbing the remote control for your television. Then you keep pressing the MUTE button on in order to stop the sound of sirens coming from your alarm clock.

  • This reminds me of all the times my alarm would go off and I would start saying: “Hello? …. huh?….. what?… hello?” in my sleep.

    In my half-awake stupor, I thought it was the phone ringing and II was attempting to answer it. I used to get so frustrated because no matter how many times I said “hello” the ringing would NEVER stop.


  • An interesting day or a very long one.

  • I usually follow that with putting orange juice in my coffee instead of milk and leaving for work with my slippers on. Sleep, I need more sleep. Hope your day turns out to be a good one.

  • SNORT!

  • That is TOO funny! I tend to be a morning person, so I don’t have those kinds of problems. I have more trouble when my kids come home late at night, and wake me up to let me know they’re home. I never remember them waking me up and I used to get on their case about forgetting to make sure I knew they were home safe. They would insist that they DID wake me up and that I actually conversed with them. I would have no recollection in the morning. They have since learned it’s best to wake up Dad and tell HIM instead.

    I remember waking up after the alarm only to find out a bit later that am still sleeping and it was a dream… LOL…

  • I’m bad about setting the alarm, not forgetting, but rather AM vs. PM hahahaha

  • HHmmmm. Could prove to be a long day. Don’t you wish the mute buttom worked for a lot things? Like maybe people, preferably kids and dogs????

  • Tiffany

    your alarm clock is scary

  • Meleah

    Ha ha ha ha.
    That’s funny!
    Glad to see you back. I missed you!

    Its shaping up to be a LONG DAY.

    Ha ha ha ha.
    I’ve come into the office with two unmatched shoes. And slippers!

    Mrs. Schmitty:

    My father is just like YOU.

    I wish I was sleeping right about now!

    Oh Ive done that one too. Only to wake up in a PANIC because I will be two hours late and searching for excuses!

    Chef Mom:
    I really do wish that MUTE button was more handy.

    Oh I know. Its like a freaking fire truck on the way to a 4 alarm blaze.

  • How funny that this is what you write about today because my alarm went off this morning and instead of hitting snooze, I turned it off completely. Yep. I woke up at 8:50am. I have to be at work at 9:00am. It’s going to be one of those days!

  • I’ve had mornings like that long ago, but they usually involved something with alcohol in it the night before.

  • I’ve learned to ignore it. I hear it in the back of my mind but it only tells me that when I’m ready to get up I’ll turn it off. How sad is that for me? LOL

    Sometimes you just need to lay there for a few more moments. Sometimes you just have to say: I’m not ready for the world right now. Give me a minute. I’ll get there.

  • Meleah

    I did THAT last week!
    ha ha ha ha
    I hope BOTH of our days get better!

    There was no alcohol involved (this time).

    Oh mine is sooo obnoxious it is IMPOSSIBLE to ignore. My old one was easy to ignore, and caused many an issue with tardiness @ work. I had to buy an alarm clock that was terrifying.

  • Haha that’s so funny 🙂

    I have to confess that alarm doesn’t wake me up… I somehow turn its horrible ringing into some nice music in my dream, so I sleep even better when the alarm goes off! I must be alien!

  • OMG! LOL!

    That was hilarious! Sorry your day started like this but you made us all laugh. Does that make you feel better? 😉

  • Meleah

    Um. Yeah. You MUST be an alien.
    Either that or you have my old alarm clock.
    That thing never woke me up.

    Random Chick:
    Yes it most certainly does…even if it is at my own expense!

  • My alarm is on my cellie…. I’m always yelling at whoever’s calling me, but it turns out nobody’s calling me at that ungodly hour….it’s just the alarm… and it makes for an off day after that 😉

  • Been there, done that.

  • cmk

    Okay, can I make everyone hate me? I don’t wake up to an alarm clock. I don’t need to get up if I don’t WANT to. (Sometimes I have to use the alarm in order to get to an appointment on time, that’s it.) Now I’m going hide. 🙂

  • Oh god … can’t wait to hear how the rest of it went! LOL

  • Meleah

    Thats too funny. Maybe I should try my cell phone for an alarm clock?


    You have no idea how jealous of you I am right now.
    Good thing I like you, or I might have to hurt you!

    Drowsey Monkey:
    Not So Bad. But Not So Great. Long Ass Day.

  • I need the three-pronged attack each weekday morning:

    1. Wake up call 15min before the cell phone alarm time

    2. Cell phone alarm 5min before last chance to wake up

    3. Table clock as last-resort before sleep-over past get-up time

    The icing on the cake is that ball starts rolling at 2:45am 🙂

  • Sheesh! I have got to get on the good foot with my comments here, Mereb! I’m always number 230, or something. I hope your day perked up, Sweetie. Hopefully it was the result of a fun night before. 🙂

  • Meleah

    WHAT? 2:45 am? What In The World Do You Do AT That Hour?

    However, that is one mighty fine OCD systematical approach to waking up. I am a FAN. Must TRY that move!

    No! Stop! Actually all of my ‘blog stats’ are down and I dont really know why…but I never really new why they went up so high at one point!

    Anyway, I always LOOK FORWARD to a comment from you. Even if it was #230 or something. You are from The Old Skool Possee baby!

  • My alarm went off, but in my half awake / half dream state, my subconscious actually convinced me that the alarm was only part of a dream and that I had several more hours of sound sleep ahead of me…

    I frantically arrived at work an HOUR late.

    These things are not helped whatsoever by the fact that my roommates were up playing Halo (at full volume) until 3am. (sigh).

    -The Rev.

  • How long till you figured it out?!?

  • Meleah

    The Rev:
    I have No Idea how you live in that house. The stories you’ve told, and the comments you have left …. *shudder* …. I would have high tailed it out of there immediately! But, at least you make it sound funny.

    At least 2-3 minuets. I kept hitting the remote like the batteries weren’t working, trying to get the mute button to work. I am very slow witted @ 6am.

  • my favorite is when you don’t hear it at all and i have to go in and physically shake you awake…

  • Meleah

    I need you to get my ass out of bed sometimes! The worst is when I don’t get up, and YOU are running late and FORGET to check and make sure I am awake!!

  • Oh man that’s bad!!! It’s also a bad day when you wake up an hour and a half before you had the alarm set for.

  • Meleah


    I never wake up BEFORE the alarm. I would be pissed!

  • When it comes to waking up from sleep, no alarm clock will ever do it for me! The only thing that could probably wake me up is wifey cooing sweetly in my ear:

    ‘if you don’t get your sorry ass off the bed this instant, you’re going to be practicing celibacy for the next one month!’ LOL!

  • Oh man, that’s funny. I guess it happens. I have put things that belong in the fridge in the cupboard.

    I set my clock 1/2 before I really want to get up, so I can press snooze 100 times and not be too late. I’ll be sleepy by 2:30-3:00 today.

  • Meleah

    Please…My mother has to come in my room and drag me out of bed some days! I know exactly what your wife must do to you!

    I hate that afternoon “Brick Wall” wherein you cant even concentrate what so ever. Ive tried setting my alarm clock so i can hit the snooze, but I usually end up accidentally shutting it off!

  • Amen to that one. Funny Meleah!!!
