day light savings ...

are we now standard time or day light savings time? i don't know the difference .... i think we are saving light by changing the hours so i don't have to do morning carpool in the pitch black ... but it just means instead i'll be driving home from basketball practices in the dark .... either way? i was a time change failure today ...

last night when i went to bed i changed my clock ... it's a new clock that i got because i needed a reliable alarm for the new school year .... i was ok with unreliable a scant three months ago ... so it's new ... and i'm dumb ... because then at 2 am (i presume) the clock turned itself back an hour .. which means i was actually central time ... which is bad ... cause i'm eastern time zone ...

so ... i woke up and my clock said 6.02 ... and my mind went ... ah ... it could be 7.02, but instead, i'm going back to sleep ... well ... it was 7.02... and should have felt like 8.02 ... but i haven't slept that late in eons ... so i never could have guessed that ...

i went back to sleep ... and woke up at 7 ... which was really 8 ... and should have felt like nine ... and i thought i had ALL the time in the world before i had to get ready for church .... so, i grabbed my book and went and got in sophie's bed to read .... cause i knew she'd be awake and reading .... and we read and chatted and i asked her what time her clock said and she said 10.30... and i said THAT"S CRAZY ... so is it 9.30? even that's crazy ... it must be 8.30 and you changed your clock the wrong way .... so now we're running late for church let's get moving ... and i did ... and not long  after she came running into my room ... i was shampoooooooing ... MOOOOOOOM it is almost ten and you have to get out ... and ... i didn't believe her ... and continued to shower at my leisure .. and then andy came in and explained how four different clocks had four different times and no one knew what time it was ... oh dear .... so i'll just put the conditioner in while you two run around like lunatics who don't know how to tell time ....

cell phones change times without help .. all the cell phones say it is ten o'clock ... and you, MOMMY, are supposed to be at sunday school at 10 ...

ok then .... good thing church is a one minute speed walk from my closet where i was quickly grabbing church clothes ....

so ... instead on an extra hour of sleep, i accidentally tried to get two ... and ended up with none, and late, late, late .. just like i am every spring when we change the clocks ....

so why do we change the clocks? it really bugs me ...

Ha! I just blogged about this issue this morning. Changing time makes me CRANKY! Just pick on, either one, and leave it alone.
