Day 15 It’s 2021. Why are we still changing the clocks?
Does anyone else hate the two time changes we go through each year? My husband smiles at my moans & sighs, at my trying to get ready for the time changes. He’s one of the lucky ones that just changes the clock and his body adjusts like magic.
Well, I could use some of that magic! It usually takes me over a week to stop feeling groggy and off-kilter from the clock changes. (You should see the wreck I am when we have to get up super early to catch a morning flight. It is NOT pretty!) Not only was getting up this morning hard, but I didn’t really want to eat breakfast. And I ALWAYS eat breakfast!
To be clear, all time changes knock me for a loop. My sister lives on the west coast. The only visit where I wasn’t awake at their 4 am was the one where I stayed three weeks after my niece was born. Finally in week two I started to feel more human, other than the infant crying me awake every few hours. By week three I was fully in west coast time, and then I had to leave and fly back home.
If we could just have a two hour delay the Monday after the time change, I think it would be okay. Or at least better! A one hour delay? Just inch into that time change….
That’s all I can handle today. I’d go take a nap, but I have to go to bed at 9:30. (It’s really 8:30!)
