I'm not sure who the genius was that thought up "daylight savings time"..but I'm just gonna say that I have a love slash hate thing for it. I mean this "spring forward" business is for the birds. Who knew that just skipping an hour ahead in life would throw me for such a loop? It takes us a good week to get our groove back together. Adjusting to the missing hour of sleep and trying to convince my kids that it really is bedtime even though it's still light outside is a true chore.
Although I'm a total fan when Summer rolls around and we get daylight for hours. It's when we "fall back" ...where I turn into the grouch of darkness. I need my Vitamin D..All. Year. Long!
And who knows how it even came about...I know..I could Google it or ask Siri..but sans the hour of sleep..I'm just to tired y'all. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with farmers and the growing season or am I out in left field on this one? Because not all of America does it right? Which is just more confusing. It simply doesn't seem right throwing time around like that. Add an hour..take away an hour..when did we decide to play the time God? And on a whole other topic..where does that hour go? It just vanishes into time space or what? Stuff like this makes my brain tired.
So give me a few days to adjust..and my kids a few more and I'll be all giddy and happy about the extra sunshine...and the fact that I don't have to change that big clock up on my wall. It's now the right time again (don't judge)
