Every time I hear the words “Daylight Savings Time”, all I can do is cringe. I know that is it going to mess with my whole family. It is not a welcome day in my house. Here are the 10 reasons why I hate it!
#10. It messes with time and continuum. We are all walking around asking, “it it really 5 or 6?”. It take a few weeks to get over the fact that the time change happened and there is nothing we can do about it.
#9. I have to figure out how to change every clock in my house. Most clocks do change on their own, but there is always that one or two that don’t. Don’t get me started on the dashboard of my car clock. I can never figure that one out and when I do I always forget by time I need to do it again.
#8. Trying to get my younger children into bed while it is still daylight out. All parents dread this one. Trying to convince a child to go to bed while it is daylight is almost impossible. Reasoning doesn’t work with this one.
#7. It has to be on a Monday. Really? It couldn’t be on a Friday afternoon?
#6. Waking up sleeping children on the first day of Daylight Savings. This is quite the feat. After I have failed at #8 and they are already loosing an hour, Monday is just not fun.
#5. I can’t get to sleep and I can’t wake myself up. Talk about giving yourself insomnia.
#4. I am TIRED. Did I mention I was tired? Since I can’t fall asleep and can’t seem to wake up I am tired for at least two weeks.
#3. My dog doesn’t know how to tell time. I now have to train him to go the bathroom at another time in the morning.
#2. Did I mention I am really tired?
#1. It is dark when you wake up. This has to be the second worst thing about the hour change. It is hard enough to get out of bed, but when it is dark it only makes it that much harder.
Ok, I am going to take a nap now…………
