Batteries

This clock died weeks ago, and for some reason, it just feels too HARD to pull a battery out of the drawer and get the thing ticking again. It might even be the main reason we hardly ever hang out in our sunny living room as much as we used to. After writing that, I feel kind of dumb. Who deserts a room in their house because they can't tell the time in it and are too lazy to do anything about it? Me. Silly Me.

I have six watches that don't work. Instead of replacing their batteries, I keep acquiring new watches. And I'm very often late.

The clock on our mantle has needed batteries for a year!

I see clocks as more of an "installation piece" rather than actual necessity. If I changed the batteries, not only would I have to locate a ladder, but I'd also have to DUST the clock too. And that's just not happening.

I wandered over to your other blog from cjane's Provo blog--and then found this blog while I was there. So, this is the best blog concept! And I totally do this AND the wearing all the un-put-away laundry until it's time to wash it all again that you spoke of in your last post.

However, I went around and changed the batteries in three of my four stopped clocks on Monday evening. Two of them had corroded batteries in them. Ick! And then one of them stopped ticking again the next day. Sad. It was the hardest to re-hang too...

I'm thinking I'm not going to try to change the batteries in the big ol' clock that's hung way high in the room with vaulted ceilings. It will just have to look pretty hanging there all useless in the middle of my house...

i think we all just need to change our thinking to clocks-as-art, and we'll be fine!

I second that motion. Glad I'm in good company. :)
