Are We Really Saving Time?

This whole Daylight Saving Time thing is kicking my butt today.  Yesterday wasn’t a big deal because it was Sunday and I didn’t have to get up quite so early.  Today, on the other hand, is sucking big time because my body thinks I should still be in bed.  I was very tempted to hurl the alarm clock across the room when it went off this morning, and I might have done just that if I was a little more awake at the time.  Instead I slammed my hand down on the snooze button, only to have the alarm go off again in what seemed like a mere two seconds later.  Add to that the fact that I had to crawl out of bed when it was still very dark outside, and we have the makings of a very grumpy morning.

Zach didn’t adjust to the time change very well either.  He stayed up until about 8:30, but still wasn’t ready to go to sleep when I put him in bed.  He normally lays down and goes right to sleep when I take him to his room.  Last night I had to give him a book to get him to even lay down and I could still hear him playing around more than thirty minutes later.  I suppose that is why he was still sound asleep when I went in to get him up this morning.  I even gave him a good twenty minutes extra to sleep since I was running late myself.

We had a pretty good weekend, although I could have used another day or two off work.  We got to hang out with my sis and her family, watch a few movies, play at the park, and just relax.  The weather was beautiful and is making me really anxious for the Spring and Summer months.  Hopefully we won’t have any more cold blasts coming our way until Fall.  The only bad part is that my allergies are kicking it into high gear all of a sudden.  So, if you see some crazy lady running around rubbing her itchy red eyes and constantly blowing her drippy nose, that’s probably me.  I’ll be coping with the tub of chocolate chip cookie dough in my fridge.

  1. I had a hard time getting up this morning as well – I was awake but it was too dark for me to feel motivated to work. 🙂

  2. yeah, i’m back to waking up at what i like to call “o-dark thirty.”

    what time do i wake up? usually around o-dark thirty.

    stupid daylight savings. i need a nap.

  3. ugh. I hate daylight savings time. I wish we could just pick a time and stick to it. It would make everything a lot easier.

    why not just make the whole country’s time an hour earlier and then stick with it? This changing time twice a year is the pits.
