And tomorrow’s Monday …

Salvador Dali Clock Explosion

… meaning that tomorrow morning Daylight Savings Time will feel even worse.

Chin up, friend.

Spring is coming.

And Daylight Savings Time is a good thing, right?

    My eyes sting and I can barely keep them open. And I have so much to do today that it makes my head spin.

    Every year the time change thing gets harder. And it’s not because I’m getting older. It can’t be, because … it just can’t. I’m too busy to get older! Know what I mean?

      I have to like the sound of that! I’m too busy to retire!

      I teach at a Christian school, which means I have exceptional coworkers, and a job I truly love. But no retirement. Save for writing.

      PD James is my hero.

      April 17th? Let me guess, taxes? 😦

    I felt like that picture of the clock all day. Gayle and I play in the praise band at church (string synthesizer and flute), as well as preludes and postludes (piano and organ), so we had to be there at 7 this morning (which was really 6).

    Now I’m sick again. Third time this winter.

      Illness. The occupational hazard of the teacher. I’m so sorry.

      I would love to have heard you play, Robin and Gayle. I joked earlier about figuring out how many tanks of gas a cross-country trip would take. Going to give that project more thought …

    We would love to have you here, Laura. We could play an entire concert if you’d like. We’re not above bribery.

    I HATE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME! Why would any sane person want to make the longest days of the year LONGER? It’s the same number of hours of daylight. Does it really matter when you start them? I DON’T THINK SO!

    Meanwhile, just about the time that the kids are getting on the bus in the early morning light, they’re plunged into darkness again. Why? So they can have more daylight hours when they get home.

    A scheme like this would only make sense to the GOVERNMENT.

    Meanwhile, people who are sleep regimented, people who take medications, people who need insulin injections, etc., have to reorient themselves to a new schedule. WHY?

    I’m a mess this week, trying to get my mind and body to sync with the time. Not to mention my car clock changed. I’m having to wake up the dogs to feed them. They prefer brunch, and sleeping in as much as I do. We’re all staggering bleary-eyed into the kitchen in the morning thinking “This is really stupid.”

    The only good thing DST does is poke my paranoia to change the smoke detector batteries.

      Ditto, Lucy. I am struggling, and not alone. You should have seen the faces of my students Monday morning! A sad bunch we were.

      Here in Oregon, we need the switch in daylight hours. When my sons were small I delivered The Oregonian newspaper — a long story, that! Believe it or not, many young women deliver newspapers, their babies asleep in their cars — so I had easy access to sunrise / sunset times. At the solstice, the sun comes up at 5:22 am. Without Daylight Savings Time that would be 4:22 am. I’m a morning person, but not that much!

      And … smoke detector batteries? Thanks for the reminder!

Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
