Spring forward

I’m sure that by now most of you reading this in the United States know that we turn the clocks ahead one hour tonight.  And if you happen to live in one of the few states that doesn’t do this, well, I’m jealous.  This action is called Daylight Savings Time.   In the fall we turn the clocks back an hour and this is called Standard Time.  I understand the concept but I still don’t like the first week (or two) as it takes my body and brain longer and longer to adjust each time we do this, though not as much in the fall.

My bladder was up by 6:40 this morning so I dragged myself out of bed and stayed up.  Usually when the rest of my body doesn’t HAVE to get up by a certain time, I crawl back into bed and go back to sleep.

So far this morning I’ve put a load of clothes in the washer, watched the deer scamper through the yard, thawed a mini-loaf of pumpkin bread, had my morning tea and pumpkin bread, put the clean dishes away, got my hand sewing together, got my current knitting project out, and written a post.

Maybe if I turn the clocks ahead now, I won’t have any trouble falling asleep tonight as my brain will already be on the accelerated schedule.

Do you do anything special to get through this time change?  Or does it not affect you?
