Everyone with children knows that "gaining an hour" as a result of the daylight savings time fall back is a joke. Oftentimes we lose an hour, since we stay up later, anticipating that hour, then arise at the normal body clock time with our children.
This year, I went to bed early/on time on Saturday, so I did get my hour, but I was wide awake Sunday by 6:15 am (body clock 7:15 am). Today was even worse. By 5:00 am, I was wide awake. So I got up.
Kyle, who shares the same body clock as I do, was up by 5:30 and came downstairs dressed and ready to go. The good news is that even Amanda easily awakened when her alarm went off.
I was tired last night at my normal time, so I went to bed fairly early again. I think that my old age is making me more resistant to the change.
The upside? It's not even 8:00 am, and I've already cleaned two bathrooms and done a load of laundry. Gotta love that!
