Recapturing Time {#SOL16 Day 14}

Daylight Savings Time sprang upon us yesterday.  Before going to bed, I reset all of the clocks one hour ahead.

I am used to getting up early. That didn't happen on Sunday. No morning ritual for me -- sitting, reading, writing, drinking coffee.  Time to get moving.

Throughout the day I tried to recapture the hour I had lost. There's always so much to do on the weekends.  Having one less hour in the day proved challenging.

I  skipped an afternoon nap and got everything done. That's how I reclaimed the hour lost.

But when 6:30pm came around and it was still light, I was finally thankful for the time change.

  1. I let my kids stay up late and now I realize it's going to make getting them up even harder. The time change is hard for me and for them. I do love the light though.

  2. Me too. I'll be happy for it in a few days.

  4. Who would think that just one hour would throw us off so much but it does. It's good to know that by the end of the day everything was a-okay!

  5. I am glad our spring break started this weekend, so I have time to adjust. I normally get up at 430a, so this change is brutal for me!

  6. So true... I kept looking at the clock all day! I do love the light at the end of the day. We all forget about the lost hour that first night we home from work and can go for a walk in the sun! Thanks

  7. It's the darkness of the mornings that throw me off. But I too will look forward to the sunlight in the evening. The lost hour yesterday had me scrambling too.

  8. Too bad the nap had to go, but something has to give right? I hated going to school on the Monday after time changed and the clocks were not changed. Here's to lingering light in the evenings, now.

  9. I'm usually fine with this, and love the light, too, but this morning seems to be going so very fast!

  10. I think I may be the only one who does not like the time change. Most of my life we did not recognize daylight savings time. It has only been about 8 years maybe, and I hate it. It was perfect the way it was and they just had to mess up a good thing! That is my rant for the day! :)

  11. I'm with Leigh Anne. I really miss the morning light and it takes awhile to recover it. Our schools had today off (weather day built into the calendar and not needed), so hopefully that helped a bit with resetting clocks.

  12. I am soon struggling right now with the hour change. I was super excited when it was still light out, but today I'm feeling like I missed the hour....lol! It's under my eyes located in bags. :) Bring on summer!
