Daylight Savings

Tuesday is the worst.
Sunday morning -- it is later than you think. OK, whatever, get a move on.
Monday morning -- ugghh, feeling off kilter, gotta get up in the dark and get a move on.
Tuesday morning --I've been hit by a bus, run over by a train, trampled by elephants, cannot move.

The Tuesday after the daylight savings switch was always the worst day in the elementary school year for student alertness, teacher coma and kids getting hit in the face with a ball in P.E.

Wednesday will be better.

Interesting, I can't think of a children's book on the subject of daylight savings, even nonfiction.
This morning my own entling moaned , "Why do they do this to us?"

Oh, and it's WORSE for me because here in the UK it hasn't switched over yet. I'm hearing everybody groan and then will have to groan alone in three weeks!!!

I'm with the entling: Why DO they do this?! It doesn't save energy.

For serious, Camille. I keep drinking coffee today, and it's just not helping. It comforts me to think that perhaps everyone else is walking around in the same daze I am.

Yeah...it's nice not leaving work in the dark, but it's going to take a while for me to stop being ready for bed at like, 8.

I can only think of two good things about daylight savings: it's warmer outside when I'm walking to class in the morning (an important consideration here in North Texas) and there's still daylight when I'm walking to evening rehearsals.

ps: I had to share my word verification with everyone. The one that proves that a human is posting this comment?

Isn't that fun?

And the answer to "Why do they do this to us?" is...

Follow the money.

A friend of mine calls the Daylight Savings Time switchover "Worst Day of the Year" and the end of it, "Best Day of the Year." I can safely say that this Sunday was the worst switchover we'd ever had. Everyone was cranky! No one went anywhere fun! It is indeed a children's book in the making. Someone else can write it, though...

It was terrible. Terrible. Especially Tuesday. My poor kids. They had to get themselves ready and drag me out in my pajamas to get them to school :)

I hear you sister. I'm all out of sorts this week and, sure, let's blame it on the time change.
