Time Changes and Weather challanges
I want them to leave the time alone. Seriously, leave it at daylight savings time or Eastern Standard time, but just pick one and be happy with it. I can't see where we save a thing by going on Daylight Savings Time because what you save at one end of the day, you spend at the other. Okay you don't need your lights on till later in the day, say 6:30 or 7:pm (like I don't have my lights on inside anyway.) But you have to turn your lights on when you get up earlier anyway plus for those kilowatt savers, leave them on longer. I'm not really clear on what we're saving . Farmers got along without time changes for hundreds of years. They worked around it and never a complaint. I don't remember my grandparents changing the clocks, I suppose they did, but only the one on the stove, I'm thinking, the one that said "get a move on you're gonna be late for church". And the weather is making me crazy. Well, crazier. The wind howled so fiercely yesterday that there was no escaping it. I finally understand what Mac means when he talks in knotts...wind miles not weapons. Nothing appears to be where I put it, the wind knocks you around like a sock puppet, and to top it off the frequent changes make me feel about 90 years old, every bone creaking and grinding together. I have a hitch in my git along (hip pain) for at least half an hour when I get up. I found myself picking up a bottle of glucosamine/chondroitan to give a try but decided to wait and get the feedback from folks who know. Meaning you. So, as I lay on the sofa this a.m. and watched Night at The Museum (if you haven't seen it, it's pretty good for us escapism fans) and decided if I could just get me one of those magic book of leaves, (see the movie) I might just enjoy life as though I were twenty again. What a concept.
