NaNoJouMo - 6

Turn the clock back. Spring ahead. Fall back. Gain an extra hour of daylight. Gain an extra hour of sleep. Day light Savings Time. Standard Time. It will save electricity. Hmm, seems to gain an extra hour of sunlight in the Spring may prevent you from turning your lights on early, but I bet your air conditioner hums when the temps move to broiling. Where's the savings in that? And turning the clocks back? If you get up at 5:30 or 6am, you have to turn your lights on or risk stubbing a toe while trying to navigate the dark or wearing one brown shoe and one black shoe. It happened. Don't ask. As if setting the clock alters the time. There's still only 24 hours in a day.

Do you think we should bother with standard and daylight savings time?


  1. I think we should stay on Day Light Savings time! I HATE it when we turn the clocks back! It gets dark sooooo early! I’d rather be in the dark in the morning. But I realize it’s unsafe for the kids at the bus stops so I grin and bear it! LOL

  2. No, please just leave the poor clocks and my poor brain alone! Thank you for asking. I needed to say that.

  3. I have to whine because it gets dark sooooo early.
