*Blink* *Blink*

Another weekend gone in a blink! I've said it before and will say it again: I am not a fan of DST. It doesn't really seem so much like an extra hour as it feels like just some kind of hell to throw my schedule off for a few weeks. I don't care about the damn hour. I care about my regular routine!

You know who doesn't care about an hour, a week or a month? The mom of a preemie. My Buddy spent 6 and a half weeks in the NICU and I quit caring about time. I haven't been in a hurry in almost 13 years. It's very liberating.

The other drivers on the road don't think my method is very good, though. I tend to have people riding my back end all the time. In my passive aggressive way, I just slow it down a few more MPH.

I DO wish I could slow down the weekends, though. It probably doesn't help that I tend to nap a lot on Saturdays and Sundays.

What? You thought I actually got a break on sleeping any other time? Sissy is a very early bird, while Buddy would sleep all day if we let him. Even if I let her stay up later, she's still up before the sun. Clearly, God has a sense of humor and wants me to bend to be a morning person. Not gonna happen. I may wake up very early, but I make sure to squeeze in a nap at some point.

I did get the most excellent #Follow Friday recommendation from ...A Sour Apple Tree :

How cool is that? More people should discuss my boobs. Feel free to share your comments below. LOL.

Alrighty, hooligans, try to embrace the Monday. It is not very awesome, but it happens. :-(



  1. I love what you said about being a morning person. I am not and never will be!

    (not gonna touch the boobs....LOL...either here or in person)

  2. I am as far from a morning person as can possibly be. I get up because I have to, but I personally think prime sleeping hours are from 6-9 a.m. I always say I sleep best when I'm supposed to be awake and sleep worst when I'm supposed to be sleeping.

    I'll touch the boobs (not likely in person though since I don't get to WV much)! Nice rack!

  3. What better recommendation than boobs???

  4. I love, love, love getting the extra hour. Got to sleep for a whole extra hour before church. That was just yummy!

  5. Sorry ETW but I LOVE daylights saving time...that is until it has to be repaid in the Spring. That part I hate.

  6. Your boobs put a smile on my face! They look friendly, warm and very inviting.

    I could take DST either way. I wake up to mayhem and chaos regardless of the hour....

  7. Falling back is harder on me then Springing forward. You think you gain this whole hour of sleep but really you just stay up an hour longer because in your mind you tell yourself it's really only 11 when your body and the clock still tell you that it's midnight. Then the kids get up an extra hour early because inadvertantly you put them to bed at 8pm(normal time) which technically is only 7pm so when it's light outside the next morning it's only 6:30am but their body is tellng them it's 7:30...whew...confused? Well, it's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Happy Monday!

  8. And you know who else doesn't care about Falling back an hour? A 5 month old. She was up at 5 AM!

  9. If I were president of the universe, nothing would get started before noon! Honestly, what can't wait until we all get enough sleep?

  10. Like Roc, I dig EDT. I like it being light out until 9:30 PM or so. Cheers ETW!!
