To Whomever Was In Charge of the Whole Time Change Thing:

This was a very bad idea. On behalf of all the other mothers of the world, please change it back.

Sincerely,

McCain, this could be your last minute maneuver to boost your numbers - go on all major networks and address the mothers of the world.  Tell them that you hear their cries and you understand.  And that you will make abolishing daylight savings your first plan of attack!  We would way rather have sleep than a healthy economy.  

Honestly, I think I might vote for Mickey Mouse if he would promise to abolish the time change deal.

Seriously.

There is no possible way that a mother was a part of the whole "Daylight Savings" discussion!  No. possible. way.

I mean, what mother would want time to go backwards?  

Can you picture it - "Oh, my kids wake up between 6 and 6:30 everyday, lets go ahead and move the clock backwards.  I would love another hour with them in the morning."

No Way!

So, this is a day that I have constantly been looking at the clock thinking, "It has to be 10 AM already."  No, it is 7:45.

"It has to be 10:30 by now.  I mean, we have watched our morning TV time, had breakfast, played board games, done play-doh time, played hide and go seek, please, God, let it be 10:30!"

Nope.  9:30.

I am bitter at "Fall Back."

But what if McCain only spoke to a certain percentage of Americans? Those with children already? I think he would definitely need to add a PSA for seasonal affect disorder people without kids like myself in order to win this thing. :-)

That K, she's silly. I happen to know her in real life, we're former college roomies. She's a hoot.

Um, YES. I HATE falling back. A friend and I were just lamenting this (at length) over the phone. YUCK. Who thought it up. I mean, who cares when it gets dark, just give me some more SLEEP!!!!!!!

K-

I am sorry to be so selfish. But, I guess I just figure the rest of the population could choose to get up a bit earlier. I would help fundraise for people with SAD to get their own sunlamps and insurance coverage for vitamin D if that would help sway the vote to ban the time change. :)

We will all adjust eventually. I am just very selfish with my sleep.

I would respnd to this, but I am too tired.

Okay, seriously. I am dying. It feels like the evenings are dragging on endlessly, too, because it's dark so early and the kids can't play outside. Killing me!
