Just One More Snooze...

Really. That's all I ask.

Ok, so it's usually about 10 or so snoozes.

I have my clock by my bed set 15 minutes fast. It's not really a trick to fool myself with, it's more of a reassuring, "sweet, I have 15 minutes more to sleep," kind of situation. Most of the time, I have to be out of bed by (real time) 7:30. So I set my alarm for (clock time) 7. This means I hit snooze for 45 real minutes. This is the way it must be for me. I have to have my snooze hits.

However, on Wednesdays, Andy has men's group in the mornings so he leaves very early and then comes back to take me into work. I get a theoretical extra half hour to sleep as work is understanding and lets me come in a little late those days due to his group.

Anyway, I have to get up on Wednesday at (real time) 8 am. So I set my alarm for (clock time) 8 am. This means I get to hit snooze for only 15 minutes.

I think I like this situation because I end up getting a whole hour of extra sleep.

Yes, I am a moron. (50 points for whoever gets the clever musical reference)

I live by the snooze. I thought that I might just sleep more by setting my alarm a half hour ahead, and only hit snooze for 15 minutes, but that doesn't work. I just NEED 45 minutes of snooze. It's the way it is.

i can't tell you how happy that makes me to hear someone else say that!

today i had it set for only a half hour of snooze. i think the only reason that worked was because i had gone to bed an hour and a half early.
sleep is a beautiful thing.
