Nov. 8

For those of you who experience the time change, does it work for you or does it mess you up? It plays havoc with the poor animals who don't understand having to wait longer for dinner. It messes with the amount of light in my life and makes me sad. It gets dark here at 4:45 pm. It will continue to get dark earlier and earlier until the end of next month. Studies have shown that more heart attacks happen when time change occurs. So, why do we do it? Supposedly it's good for business. Daylight savings time means longer evening hours and therefore more time to shop. If that's the case, why do we switch back to standard time at all? Why not make DST the standard time and be done with it? Thoughts?


  1. It's strange driving to work in the the daylight. But thank goodness the new times haven't messed with my baby's sleeping schedule too much. She tries to go to bed early, but YES, she's been waking up at the correct time. I feared she'd try to get up at 3:30 or 4:30 am. But nope, thank goodness.

  2. Hi Linda, Wow you are lucky. I have another friend whose toddler is all messed up from the time change. :)
    Take care and enjoy driving in the morning light. Cheers~
