Spring Forward????

Can not understand why they say "Spring Forward".  Most of the people manage to crawl slowly forward.  And it keeps happening earlier and earlier.  I had completely forgotten that we were supposed to turn the clocks on Saturday.  Imagine my surprise when I left the bathroom at 3:45am and arrived in the living room at 4:45am.  I mean sometimes I'm slow, but let's be realistic -- an hour to go 12 feet.  And we have a "monster clock" (as SIL Jimmy calls it) in the living room.  It's a radio controlled clock, and is supposed to change all on it's own.  But my clock doesn't like this whole time changing thing either.  I can't tell you how many times yesterday, I looked at the clock and the hands were just going around and around.  But I will admit that I love the fact that it stays light later in the evening.  My dad used to say that he would rise but that he wouldn't shine.  I guess I'll go forward, I just won't spring.  Have a good day.  Toodles!

Since I'm up early in the morning most days, I don't like it being dark yet when I get out of bed. *sigh* I want it be light in the morning AND in the early evening!!! I laughed at how long it took you to walk 12 feet....gotta love the time change!

I normally am not affected by the time change but this year has really worked me over. All day yesterday all I could think about was going back to bed and today isn't looking much better.
