Dear Kid,

Tick Tock. (I hate that we don't have a clock in the study. Here's the story...) DearKidLoveMom.comI hate that there is no clock in the study. It seems like not having a clock would be calm and soothing. It’s not. It makes me want to jump up and run around the house looking for a clock. Except for the jumping up and running around part.

There used to be clocks in here. One used to hang on the wall (it was purple). It died. I’m not sure if it died from not having its battery replaced or because its TICK was louder than an active volcano (loud tics and Dad sleeping are not compatible). I suspect clock murder, but I’ve never pursued the investigation.

I had a clock that I won as an award in here. I took it to work. Then I brought it home. I’m not sure where it’s living at the moment…

My computer has a clock. Pi is currently using the computer to Do School Work. I won’t interrupt school work for a time check.

My phone has a clock. It’s in the kitchen which is 3.7 miles away (in terms of effort).

The puppy has a clock but it only works at breakfast time and dinner time. While he’s incredibly accurate at those times, his clock is incredibly unhelpful in between.

There are windows in the study. I know it’s daytime. For me (at this particular moment), that’s is insufficiently specific. And we don’t have a sundial in here.

Sundial. Used for telling time when you have sun but don't have a watch, electricity, or a handy clock.

Regardless, I’m pretty sure it’s time for another cup of coffee.

Love, Mom
