When I was in highschool I always tried to get 8hrs of sleep and was sure that if I didn't I would be just completely exhausted the next day.
Also in highschool, on our youth spring break trip to the beach, I was given the "SLOTH" award because of my pension to not only sleep late in the morning, but to take a nap in the afternoon, and go to bed early at night.
So really, it should come as no surprise that the Saturday night each year we get to fall back and gain a whole hour for sleep just thrills me.
I am starting to think that I can honestly say this is my favorite night of the whole year.
And because it is my favorite night of the whole year it would only stand to reason that the fateful night every year when we spring forward has to be my least favorite night of the whole year. I mean, seriously, what are they thinking taking away a whole hour of our sleep?
I know there has been some talk of just doing away completely with the time change. While this would remedy my least favorite night problem, I actually like the marked difference in day light that the time change creates. It just wouldn't feel right to eat Thanksgiving dinner while the sun was still up. Or Christmas dinner.
And it is rather fun to see who makes it to church early or late depending on the change each year. It has occasionally been us.
All this to say, I am so looking forward to my extra hour of sleep this weekend. Hope you are too!
PS. my friend April helped me figure out how to do
