How’d you do with the clock thing last night? Did you get them all properly reset? I’m betting you missed at least one.
I went to bed feeling really smug. I was confident I’d reset all but the clock in the car.
Wrong. Of course.
I messed up the coffeemaker. And that’s a real bummer because I like my coffee hot and waiting when I get to the kitchen every morning. It was doubly disappointing because, knowing its importance to my well-being, the first clock I tackled last night was the coffeemaker. But somewhere between the setting for the clock and the setting for when the coffee starts brewing … I obviously screwed up.
Then, while sitting here reading my mail and visiting other blogs, I realized I hadn’t reset the timers on the three lamps in this room. One comes on when the sun gets low (before it gets so dark that the sudden brightness startles me), the next comes on about a half hour later, and the third is a little low-wattage desk lamp that comes on around 11 pm and stays on all night. (I learned that from my parents. It was so we’d never come home to a dark house.) The two big lamps turn off at staggered times, shortly after I go to bed.
I did, however, remember to change the relatively useless electric clock above the tv and a similar one in the bedroom. And I got the ones on the stove and the microwave. So except for the car, I think I’m done.
Oops, not quite. I still have to fix the coffeemaker.
