Daylight Savings Time Doldrums
I hate daylight savings time!
There, I said it! And hate is a very strong word. I try to rarely use it, but in this case it fits.
I need just about every hour in the day that there is. So to lose an hour is a huge deal to me. Especially since I lose it on the sleep end of my day. And I really need my sleep! So do my children. To make matters worse with daylight savings; no one is tired at night. But everyone is exhausted in the morning. It is just not fair!
I love the fact that the evenings are lighter later. I love when Mark gets home and there is still some daylight left. I love eating dinner when it is not pitch black outside. And the dark mornings I can even handle, for I know it won't be much longer until they are bright too.
But the week it takes for us to recover that lost hour is enough to push me over the edge.
Thank goodness for caffeine!
