The Time, It Is A-Changin’

Can’t wait! We set the clocks back at last this weekend.

I say that now, but I do know that, by the end of next week, I’ll be cursing this time change as much as I do the one in the Spring. The days will stretch on forever, with that one extra hour. This isn’t something humans are made for.

I sure wish someone would start a movement to abolish Day Light Savings Time completely and to never change our clocks again. Unless the power has gone out, or the battery has died. I’m too lazy to do it, so it’s up to someone else.

While I’m on the subject (whining about time), have I told you how much I dislike Eastern time? If so, I’ll state it here again, because I really, really, really don’t like it. Our son, who is in EST (after this weekend—EDT now), also hates it. Our daughter, ditto. What would it hurt if half the country were on Central time? I think that would be perfectly reasonable. We’d get used to the skewed daylight and I wouldn’t get to Nashville an hour early every time I drive there from Knoxville.
