DMoG, Day Four

Hi ho! Click here to find out why I'm writing blurbs instead of full-fledged posts!

4: I'm thankful for Daylight Savings Time, or whatever time thingie it is we're doing now. However, unlike all of you morning-loving fruitcakes, I love it because it gets dark early. I know, for some of you, that makes me the fruitcake. But there is something safe and cozy about having my family home, in for the night, while darkness removes all the distractions from the scene. Not to mention it's a heckuva lot easier to get my kids to go to bed when it feels like it's been midnight since dinner. Give me enough anti-depressants and a hot fudge sundae store that delivered, and I could live in Iceland.

This time change is kickin' my butt! I get to work at 4 and some people start their shift at 6 and I swear it feels like it's 8 because it's been dark for so long!

But I do LOVE that my kids are home earlier from their friend's house and we're all hunkered down for the night by 6.

Midnight since dinner...so funny!

You are the fruitcake! I go to work at 0600 and get off 12 hours later.....I never see the daylight!
However, if you want to be thankful for it, well, it's your DMoG.

Boooooo. But unlike Amber, I actually have been more alert with this time change. It's when we lose an hour that it kills me.

Hmmm. Try living there before you say that. Having spent 3 winters in Finland, I can say that near-perpetual darkness is awful. I remember having grade school recess with street lamps to light the playground because it was pitch black even though it was 10 am or so. Yeah. SO FUN. Ugh. Give me LIGHT! I need SUN! (Yes, you're a fruitcake. But I love fruitcakes.)

I love daylight savings for the "sleeping in" but I hate it for the lack of light. My depression goes all kinds of beserk the moment summer ends.

We are back in normal time now, with Daylight Savings being Mar to Nov. I have mixed feelings about the whole thing... It sure is easier to have a calmer evening when it gets dark earlier, but the hibernation mode I get into means I accomplish zero after dinner.

Can I be the ultimate fruitcake? because I love the brighter mornings AND the early-bed-inducing dark evenings. At least until the snow flies...

Freaking LOVE this time thingie. Makes me getting ready for bed at 7:30 pm look kinda normal
