Spring Forward

This was the weekend we got to spring forward and set our clocks an hour ahead to gain an extra hour of sunlight.  I'm what you'd call a low achiever.  Falling behind is what I've done my whole life.

According to the new time I went to sleep and woke eight hours later.  Why then did it feel like I was hit with a baseball bat all day long?  I drank cup after cup of coffee.  Then I ate the rest of the day but was confused about whether to eat breakfast food (yes if you're going by old time) or lunch (no if you're going by new time) so I stuck with  chips and salsa.  I ran an errand that seemed to take awhile but not according to the clock in the car.  Five miles later when I returned home, an hour had passed.  We ate dinner at 8:00 (7:00 if you're going by old time) and finished in time to get ready for bed at 9:00 (8:00 if you're going by old time).  It felt too early to go to sleep so I laid in bed for a couple of hours and finally got up at midnight (still Sunday and 11:00 if you're going by old time).

This was the weekend we got to spring forward to gain an extra hour of sunlight.  The forecast is for 3" of snow allowing us to frolic in the wintry mix past dinner.  It's been a long winter and I'm not in the mood to look at more snow in the extra light of day.  Maybe in a couple of weeks, if I work really hard at it, I'll get the hang of this new time/old time thing.

Sadly, my status as a low achiever remains intact.
