It comes every year whether we like it or not: Daylight Savings Time. We Spring Forward – turn clocks an hour ahead and experts like to claim we’ll feel like this:
And every time it has the opposite effect on me:
So today, I’ll do as I’ve learned to do ~
- I’ll cook a few things, but not too ambitiously.
- I’ll read a while, but not too ambitiously.
- I’ll workout a bit, but not too ambitiously.
- I’ll go to bed a little sooner and give myself some grace to adjust … ambitiously.
But, after the winter we’ve had/been having, anything with the word Spring in it should be embraced 🙂

Little lady is known as “The Governor” for her effective negotiating skills. Good times and much ❤ yesterday.

So this weekend brought us “Daylight Savings Time” again.
You know, the whole “Spring Forward” thing.
The one usually chatted up by someone cheerful about it.
Where I grew up, we never adjusted our clocks. The seasons came and the seasons went and the clock on the kitchen wall stayed as it was – untouched.

I know I’m supposed to feel like this:
But today, I feel more like this:
How about you? Do you have any problems adjusting to “Daylight Savings time?”
