Beware the 13th

Ever since I was a little girl I have heard people declare that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. But I don’t think that any day has more luck or less luck than any other day. Especially not because the date is a number that some people say is unlucky. In fact, I know a lot of people who declare that 13 is a lucky number – not unlucky!

So today is Friday the 13th and some people are so freaked out that they are taking precautions, like not driving today. That is so silly! But if they are that feeble minded, maybe it is a good thing that they are not driving and our roads will be that much safer today.

Spring Forward

Tonight we all change our clocks to Daylight Savings time, which means that we have an extra hour of daylight every afternoon after school and after work. The only problem with this is that we must pay the price of an hour’s sleep tonight. That is a steep price for a young mother, let me tell you! But overall, the idea of having an extra hour for the kids to be outside every day makes it worthwhile.

I have to change the clocks on the stove and the microwave, the VCR and the two alarm clocks in my bedroom. At least my cellphone and my computer will change the time themselves.
