Kids! Vomit! Mice!
Maybe it would help if you advanced a little and got a digital clock?
No! It doesn't! Because some of the digital clocks change the time all by themselves, and some don't, wreaking massive confusion upon my household.
We're struggling, too. The darkness in the morning. Oy.
Us too. My kids get up between 5:30 and 6 am to make it to school on time. We've gone back to the darkness and it's awful.
I love having light when I get out of work. I can't get to sleep on time, I struggle to get out of bed on time, and a certain fluffy cat is headed for bathmatdom if he doesn't stop waking me up as soon as I drop off...but I do love seeing that sliver of daylight once a day!
Yeah. I am in full agreement. There is a petition on the White House web site: "End Daylight Savings". It isn't perfect but I signed it. This madness has to stop!
let's see if the Blog Powers that Be will let me post this link. This one still needs over 97,000 to get any response. Which means, basically, that it's hopeless. But signing it made me less grumpy!https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/end-daylight-savings/WlTW6q9p
I hate it. I'm also up at 6 am and it's pitch dark again, which makes me want to weep. My 4yo is hit especially hard by the spring clock change. Last year she wet the bed for two weeks because her sleep cycle was completely thrown. This year she's up in the middle of the night, confused, and she's lost her usual sunny disposition. Meanwhile, my husband is on the other side of the world and it was hard enough figuring out his itinerary and local time once; now I have to do it twice, and he has no idea what time it is anywhere. Ugh to all of it.
So dark in the morning... so light when I should be making dinner... No one can wake up easily this week, and dinner has been late every night.
Bleah. What is even the point? The days just keep changing in length no matter where we set the clocks. I wish we could just leave them alone.
2nd day of being late to work! At least the kids go to school before the bell rang :)
Ditto! I usually work out in the a.m.'s but I totally ignored my 5:15 wake up call Mon & Tue! My body KNOWS its 4:15 , ick!
I really really really hate DST. The end.
We are having a similar problem around here....although martyr that I am, I am still getting up at my usual time and then dragging around crabby all day declaring things like, "Why am I so tired today?"
So I can blame my *total* lack of productivity this week on Daylight Savings Time? Woo-hoo!!
