Daylight Saving Time and Random Funnies: Random Tuesday Thoughts

Hello Tuesday! It is Tuesday, isn’t it? This is one of those Tuesdays that feels like it should be Thursday already. Add to that the hour we lost over the weekend – anyone else not a fan of Daylight Saving Time? I’m certainly not – while I mostly like that it stays light later, I’m simultaneously not a fan of it staying light as late as it does, especially in the summer.

I grew up with room darkening shades in my bedroom for this very reason – us had a regular bedtime (8pm when we were younger, 9pm when we were still in school, I believe – 10pm on the weekends, or some such thing). Anyway – I distinctly remember laying in bed at 8 or 9pm hearing all the neighborhoods kids outside having a grand old time until it literally got dark out. No fair.

Now as an adult, I have to have a perfectly dark room in order to fall asleep. When I was single living in an apartment, the plastic blinds were never enough – if I wanted to get to sleep at a ‘decent’ hour, I’d end up hanging a thick blanket over the window blinds to block out the light and get some sleep. I especially did this if I ever wanted to sleep in on a Saturday morning – first ray of light that enters my room always – and I mean always – woke me up.

And that still happens – god forbid the hubby should decide to turn on the master bath light before he shuts the door, or not turn it on before he opens the door… *boom!* I’m awake. And none too pleased with my awake status, either…heh!

So, getting to the point (finally! I know!) is that when we lose that hour of time, not only am I getting robbed an hour of sleep (because let’s face it – how many of you can fall asleep an hour earlier than usual, per your internal clock?) but now the dance with the late night lights will be messing with my as well. I just wish they’d stick with standard time year ’round instead of going back and forth with this nonsense. 

And with that, let’s move on to the funnies, shall we?

  1. We need to reset the clocks by 30 minutes, splitting the difference, and leave them there permanently!
