I can't help it. I really can't.
Daylight Savings Time (DST) makes me crazier than a hound dog in a chicken factory!
For days I go around looking at the clocks thinking, "I know it says it's 3:00, but it's really 2:00-so I don't have to start on this... yet". I can't get my kids to bed now before the clock says 10 or 10:30 -because their little bodies think it's only 9 or 9:30. Not to mention that their real bed time starts at 8:30- which their bodies currently think of as 7:30 when the clock says 8:30. That's not to mention the taxing of my capabilities when the alarm goes off 3 times a week at 5:00 am- yes that's AM PEOPLE- 5:00 am for me to go to the gym--- and my body thinks it's really 4:00 am- yes, that's AM AGAIN PEOPLE!! I haven't written my post yet about why (dear Lord, why) I am going to the gym 3 times a week at 5:00 AM- actually the dear Lord is why- but we'll get to that later.
WHEW! Not to mention that I read somewhere that the whole idea was started to SAVE CANDLES- for pity's sake. Now, not that I'm against those of us who are still lighting our homes with candles- don't get me wrong- but what are the odds that people who live that way even OWN A CLOCK?!?! Oh yeah, and then there's that nifty little thing called research, that proves that it doesn't even save money and time- just spends it! (click the link and search for daylight savings time). Google it, I dare you! It will literally make your head spin.....
Deep breath... OK... I feel better now. Thanks for listening.
