Sping Forward.....Time Change!!

Managing Real Estate Broker with Flexit Realty "Flexible Home Selling Solutions"

I know you been reminded!  Wake Up Call

REMEMBER for those of you in a state that "springs" forward and "falls" back that is my little way of remembering when and what.

Nothing worse than showing up for church and hour early!

Nothing worse than shaking your spouse awake with a hair raising shriek...."get up we have over slept"....and she smacks you and says we changed to "Daylight Saving Time" last night! ........mutterings under her breath....go to sleep!

Nothing worse than flying out of bed...showering getting dressed, being quite not to disturb anyone, only to hear on the radio, as you go to work an hour early.  "Don't forget Daylight Saving Time, the chaCatnged last Night" set your automobile clocks if you haven't..now you why the traffic is so light!

Nothing worse than jumping out of bed stepping on the cats tail!

So....YES this is a REMINDER!

checking timeNothing worse than showing up for a client meeting an hour early, thinking they aren't coming, unable to contact them by cell and leave!

Nothing worse than calling your office manager to remind them of something important at 6:30 am when you think you are calling at 7:30 am!  My wife automatically changes our clocks the night before, but if you don't .... I warned you!

Nothing worse than showing up at the clients an hour early for a listing appointment!  They are still vacuuming, showering or getting dressed!

Hope you had fun with the reminder....some of us have done all these things...how do you think I know about them! :-)

Thanks for Stopping By

Gary, I believe I've done a couple of these things over the years. Thanks for the reminder and don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Yippie!!  Luv it.....At last we are almost out of this horrible long cold winter.  Today here in "the Live Free or Die State" of NH we are enjoying 55 degrees and the birds are singing and the sun is shinning, Maybe I died and went to Heaven.

Thank you God

I'm having a "Time/Thyme" party tonite and we'll spring forward before we go to bed!   Everything we're serving has Thyme in it and I have made a clock cake for dessert.   That should remind everybody :0)

Hi Kristen, I seem to always forget one clock or car...something and run ahead of behind for one day until I catch up.  Thanks for the comments.

It is always interesting Monday after wards to see who is late because of the change. Some are chronically late but will have an excuse for one day!

I used to work nights in a hospital.  I loved the start of daylight saving but hated that night when it went backwards.  That was painful.

Hi Gary ~ I'm all set - I never figured out how to change my car clock and never got up on a chair to change my kitchen clock - and to cap it off my watch disappeared this morning.

My head hurts though -and not for the first time when I contemplate the time change.  Wouldn't the problem tomorrow be showing up for your noon-time open house at 11:50 and it's really 12:50? Aren't we in danger of being late - not early - tomorrow?  In fact, these open house snafus happen every year it seems - no matter how many reminders are sent out.
