I'm not ready....

So, they threw daylights savings time (DST) at us early....the whole day I was completely unware (I forgot). That was until I was in the shower and realized that I was off by a complete hour. We were to meet friends at 7:30 for dinner and I had planned on 45-minute hair....

Still dripping, I ran to my cell phone and dialed the time number.... THANK GOD!!!!! Finally, my television relationship had paid off. I had been running my day based on the time on my TiVo and it had not steered me wrong. An hour later, I had the perfect 45-minute hair and make up too!!

When I woke up the next day (Monday morning...I had this Monday off) it was dark and it was 6:30..... Oh God! I forgot that with this whole early DST, that dark mornings were upon me..... I was groggy, grouchy and in need of another hour of sleep (because really, it's 5:30). I flipped on the morning news and dealt with the lost hour.

Now it is 9:44 in the evening and it is still 68 degrees.... I am not ready for the heat...or the dark mornings...or the long days. Gone is my ability to use "lack of light" as an excuse to get out of chores, commitments, etc. I have always been one of those people that waded into a pool inch by inch until I was accustomed to my surroundings....I never jumped in and now I felt as if I was thrown in... Now, who do they (who are these people anyway???) think they are by making this DST two weeks earlier??? They never asked me. Do they not realize how much I now have to move up on the schedule??? Here is my list....

Pedicure....let's just say, that no one would want to see my "winter" feet

Wardrobe...I am still wearing "loose" clothing to hide the sins of the holidays and now I need to finance new additions to my wardrobe.

Shaving, Waxing, etc....I refuse to comment

Weight....Again, I refuse to comment.

My yard....I need to remove the dead items from the garden and purchase vegetables and fresh herbs. And, the winter rains have weeds growing out of every crack on the patio and the driveway.

Cleaning....suffice it to say, you can get away with quick cleaning easier in the winter months than in the warmer months. The dark hides many secrets.....

Starbucks...don't laugh!!! Do I order something on ice in the morning??? Or, do I still order hot?

The list goes on and on, but I now I have to think about these things and many others, two weeks earlier than planned.... GOD HELP ME!!!!

DST is a pain! I remember as a kid, they never used to change the clocks, and everything was fine.
