Damn You Daylight Savings Time

Can someone please explain to me the importance of daylight savings time? Who created it and why are they torturing me?

Little J has been up at 4:30 a.m. the past two nights (mornings). I feel like a walking zombie. I actually made my 4 year-old take a nap today because she was up at 5:30. She hasn't napped since she was 3 and she slept for an hour and a half. It was nice to have some time to myself this afternoon. The only drawback is that she was up until like 9 p.m. I usually have her in bed by 7:30. I would much rather have the time at night to decompress and watch TV or something.

Needless to say, both girls are tired and cranky and so is mommy. How much longer is this going to last? I need some sleep!!

Oh, and I finally got my period. Yay! It was almost a week late. I feel bad writing this but it would not have been a welcome surprise to find out that I was pregnant. Honestly, I don't think my marriage could survive another baby. Sad, but true.

I'm with you on Daylight Savings Time. It sucks. Squeaks is getting up so much earlier than usual and it's killing me.

And yay for your period! Don't feel bad for saying what you did. Kids can test a marriage and you're still adjusting to Little J -- not a good time for yet another one!

I'm afraid I cannot explain the importance of DST, because I am still waiting for someone to explain to me!

It must have some great positive impact on the world, or else they would give all us mommies a break and end the pain and suffering, right?

I feel your pain on that one, for sure. Mine has been getting up insanely early (and he was, even before the time change), but I only have one little one to deal with.

Hope the adjustment doesn't take too long T your house!

Hmm...not sure what happened there, but that's supposed to be an "in" instead of a capital T there at the end. Hunh?

I'm a historian and I couldn't tell you exactly what the purpose is. Sad, eh?

Its a PITA thats for sure.
