It’s only a matter of time

20 May

There are only 16 days of school left. There’s excitement and stress in the air as we count down the days.

On the home front, though, I’m having a different sort of experience with time.

Last year, the clock in my car stopped working. I think there must be a short or something because the light that let’s me see what gear I’m in is out too. This is only a problem at night, but I get around it by opening the door to see what the gear box. Fortunately, my car is an automatic.

Last week, the battery in my stopwatch died while I was doing DRAs. I had to remove 7 tiny screws in the back in order to replace the battery.

On Sunday, the clock on my stove died. This is by far the most serious problem because the oven controls are connected to it.  I don’t use the oven very often (and never when it is hot) but the stovetop still works. I have a call in for a repairman and my fingers are crossed.

    Sounds like a timely problem to me. 🙂 Clocks are pretty important.

    So many issues with time telling devices! Good luck.

    I think there’s a message here. Too much focus on time. Vacation ahead 🙂

    I love how serendipity works, or is it synchronicity? Hope the time challenges are all over when school is out!

    I second blkdrama’s comment above! Maybe all of your time devices breaking is a sign that vacation is coming soon and that you should abandon all of your clocks and just relax. 🙂 I always know I’m on vacation when I look at my wrist and realize I’m not wearing a watch!
