Is everyone ready for their annual dose of sleep deprivation?

What's sleep? At least for some of the experts around here that seem to on all the time. (not that I'm complaining)

hmm, I like to think I'm quasi-bi-lingual when it comes to English/English translations, but, I am not familiar with this one?

LOL... okay, I see.

Anyway, I still need to change the clock in my car, DH did all of the ones in the house (not that we look at those, we use our phones and tablets lol).

I do not need to change the batteries in my smoke detectors, as they are hard-wired and the back up batteries signal audibly when they need to be changed.

I do also remind folks who don't employ an automated back up solution to grab a hard drive and back up the data from their pc. I have had two hard drive failures and didn't have quite up to date backups... it hurts.
(I don't just back up at the time change, I also back up the whole shebang at the end of every project I do, writing an invoice is an excellent reminder for me. lol)

We've still got six days to go here.

 

But my house is unfortunately orientated so that the sun shines right in my bedroom window.

 

Being woken up naturally is fine, but not at 5:30am.
