Aching to wake in the light

In a few weeks it will feel normal, but for now, can I just say, Daylight Savings Time sucks.  It was nice, last week, to wake up early and find it light.  This week, we are dragging — all of us.  Most especially me.

I do not like the cold; I do not like waking up in the dark.  These are conditions for throwing the clock against the wall and sleeping until we naturally wake — when it is light and the day reaches out to greet us.

Perhaps it is the 40 degree temperature swing — temps were over 60 yesterday, though it was windy and rainy, it was warm.  Today, they say there is a chance of snow.  SNOW!  We’ve had enough, dear gods of the weather.  We are weary and long for sunshine to replenish the Vitamin D we no longer have.  Sun, gods!  Send us sun and warmth.  (But keep the mosquitos)

    Not all younger people Earthbound.

    The Little Man said on the way to daycare today, “why is it dark outside? It’s not supposed to be dark when I go to school Julian. I want the sun out.”

    I do, too.


  3. Amen, sister! (One of my Facebook friends said “Daylight Savings Time is for much younger people…”)
