Several days before it’s time to ‘spring forward’ I begin dreading that I’m about to lose an hour. I purposefully create an attitude of deficiency. I get sad.
And to make matters worse, I usually spend the next couple of days after the change feeling all confused about what time it REALLY is.
Some years I’ve tried to combat this syndrome by going to bed early. So I won’t feel the lost hour of sleep – or maybe so I won’t remember I changed the clocks the night before. Neither strategy has helped much though.
It’s going to stop this year. Starting today. I am officially SO PSYCHED that I GET TO moved my clocks forward this weekend! I’m finished allowing this one day of every year to have so much power over me.
Whew. I feel better already.
How about ya’ll? How do you handle the time change? How do you WANT to handle it?
