Love/Hate Relationship

I have a love/hate relationship with Daylight Savings Time! I'll start with the positives first:

In the fall, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting an extra hour of sleep! It's wonderful! And, sadly, it's probably the only time of the year when we're actually on time to Bible class the next morning.

In the spring, I like that it stays lighter outside longer. And, that's probably it.

Now, for the negatives:

In the fall, I hate that it gets dark so early! It's a hard adjustment for our family.

Now for the spring negative... LOSING AN HOUR OF SLEEP!!!!! I can't afford to lose any more sleep. Add that to the fact that it's light outside until after 9 pm, which makes it incredibly hard to get my kids to sleep on time. It's just plain not fun in the beginning. I love springtime, but I dread Daylight Savings Time!

So, remember to set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed tonight! And, good luck in the morning...

I hate losing the sleep! But I love having some daylight after I get home from work. There's nothing more depressing than pulling out of the parking garage at work and having to put on your headlights immediately - and then pulling into your driveway at 6pm and the sun's already down. I hate that!
