I Don't Want to Spring Ahead

I think my title says it all. I don't want to give up my hour of sleep. I woke up this morning and truly felt cheated. Where did my hour go anyway? It just evaporates into the cosmos. I'm not happy about this. My oldest isn't happy either. She made plans to go to a friend's house and work on their science fair project and she woke up feeling completely rushed. She needed that hour. Sure you think an hour is nothing, but you can get a lot done in an hour and I want it back.

My youngest, the cup is half full child, sees the good side of daylight savings. It will be lighter longer and she will have more time to play outside when her homework is complete. I understand and I do like that aspect of it. I just want my hour. I know it will come back around in the fall, but it doesn't do me any good today.

This also messes up my household for weeks. The kids have a real hard time adjusting to the new time. They're never going to go to sleep tonight for that matter I'll probably have a hard time as well. This all means I won't be able to get them up in the morning. Oh it's going to be an ugly week. The only good thing I can think of at the moment is it's almost baseball season. As I write this post my husband has just put on a Red Sox spring training game. Now I have something to smile about. I love baseball.

We have a hard time adjusting too. My husband really feels cheated because he did not know it was time to spring forward until about 7pm last night.

I also hate having to run around the house changing all the clocks. We have 12 clocks to change, and of course most of them have a unique way of being set, so it takes forever!

I hate daylight savings time - that one hour throws my kids out of wack for a week. They were trying to fall asleep until 11 pm - they are going to be EVIL today.

Well the daylight actually was not meant for us , it was decided more for the benefit of all the bussiness community all around North America ,so they can get more hours for conversing electricity and use all the extra sun light and consumer power.

I LOVE Daylight savings time and don't know why we can't keep it all the time instead of switching back. It's so much nicer to have daylight at the end of the day when you get off work, when you can actually do something outside. I LOVE LOVE daylight savings.

The savings was not originally just for businesses, but back during the first energy crisis we saved TONS of electric in everyone's homes, in schools etc. Was a good move. Still is.


Did you know I have a contest going on? You could win.
