Tomorrow’s gonna suck

3 Jan

I’m just going to admit it and embrace the inevitable – tomorrow’s going to suck, and we’re all going to be cranky.

Well, not all of us. No, the one person who’ll manage will be Maura. Maura, the smart one, who stuck to her bedtime/get up time and isn’t wildly off schedule. Unlike the rest of us, who embraced the later nights and later wake up calls. It’s amazing how in two short weeks, we have thrown ourselves off the school schedule. Except for Maura. Maura who values her sleep times. Because Maura is a wise owl. Unlike the rest of us, who instantly shed the school schedule like it was never happening again.

But it is happening. It’s happening in less than 24 hours. Tomorrow morning, around 6:30 am, we’ll be doing our best impressions of cranky zombies. Except Maura, who’ll be all “Yay! School! Bus! Woohoo!”

By 4:30 tomorrow afternoon, we should all be sniping at each other. By Tuesday, we’ll be too out of whack to be cranky. By Wednesday, we’ll probably be back into the groove, but still a little twitchy. Thursday will see us almost back to normal, in time to screw it all up again on Friday. Saturday morning, we’ll all be sleeping in. Except for Maura. Who listens to her internal clock. Because she’s wiser than the rest of us.

Meanwhile, I’ll just apologize for any crankiness on my part right now. Send coffee please.

And to everyone else about to dive back into the school routine, godspeed.

    I already have worked 3 days after Christmas – but I am sure, all of you who slept in the last weeks have listened to your internal clocks -they are just not compatible with the early-bird-society …

      No they aren’t. They’re better suited for Irish society, not Seattle 7:30 school starting times.

        7:30? I’d be a zombie at that time!

        It’s kind of awful. The school district sent out a survey about start times, and you bet I checked off all the approving of later start times. It’s ridiculous!

        It is. It is even worse for teenagers if the newest studies are true.

    We got sorta lucky here in Vancouver (WA, not BC!) We got a very rare snowfall early this morning, and while it’s light, just covering the grass, the school district has already announced a 2-hour late start tomorrow. That should help them work back into it.

    I’m just hoping our weenie school board doesn’t decide to close schools tomorrow. Even though it’s slated to melt before dawn, they might. They’re talking about it.

      They did. Double sigh.

    I graduated high school last year. Glad to be a college student now, so much freedom, haha!
