I love Daylight Savings Time.
I know everyone hates the aggravation and the "jet lag" of switching the clocks. But Daylight Savings Time? It ROCKS!
Because it is 6:45 pm and it is still daylight. And I am still dressed. Usually by now, I've put on the p.j.'s and prepped for bed. Why? Because it is dark. And when it is dark - it's time to go to bed. That's how I roll (yeah, big party animal over here.)
During Daylight Savings Time I tend to be super productive and generally happier - I'm convinced it's because of the extension of the sunlight.
Personally, I think they need to figure out a way to keep it lighter later longer (say that three times fast!) all year round. It would make me one happy camper - and if I'm a happy camper then usually those around me are a bit happier as well.....just ask Hubby & Man-Child, they'll confirm that it's true.
It's only day one of DST and I have been super-super productive.
My house is clean enough that if you un-expectedly showed up at the door, I'd actually let you in rather than hiding in a closet and pretending I wasn't home (not that my house is usually a total rat's nest! But still, I'd rather you not see it if it's not at least half-way decent....and as we've discovered in previous posts - if my family is here - then my house is not kept up to my standards [because they go behind me and purposely mess everything up! Really!] Hmmm-am seriously thinking they must move to the never-to-be-finished-shed/guest house ASAP.).
Laundry - while not completely done - the majority is done, folded, hung and put away (and you know laundry is the bane of my existence!). And I can see the laundry room floor - BONUS! (As far as ironing goes - forget it. I don't do it - if you want something ironed in this house - you do it yourself or send it out for cleaning.)
Top tabs on blog; figured out (kinda). For this I have Fab In Your Forties to thank. This is something I have struggled with for months now. I would start to mess with it, get frustrated and realize I had something more important to do and let it go. Today Fab tweeted that she was ready to smash her computer. As a friend, I simply could not let that happen! So I Googled it....again. But, as is the way with the all mighty Google, it's all in how you phrase your request. Today I phrased it just a twitch different and hit upon the result I'd been seeking all this time. I sent Fab the link tout-de-suite! Hopefully it works for her (email me dear if it doesn't, we'll figure it out. I mean it is only technology after all and as you know, we are far superior!) as it did for me. What? You haven't noticed my top tabs? I realize they are tiny, but still.... There are only two for now, but I expect I'll be adding to them now that I've figured it out.
I even got a bit of shopping done today. I have been obsessing over a scrolled mail sorter for a while now. I have searched and searched. I have yet to find it. I know they are out there - I've seen them. But now that I am searching for them? Nowhere to be found - such is the story of my life - once it's in my head and I want it I simply can't find it. Hmmm, note to self: learn how to do metal work - it may be the only way to find what you are looking for....
Although I did find some boyfriend jeans and am super excited about that as they don't make me look as short (and round) as I thought they might. So, a mini-yay!
I have also discovered that today they celebrate Mothering Day in the UK (almost tomorrow over there now....) - another thing learned from my friends across the pond. So, to all my dear friends who are/have celebrating/celebrated today - Happy Mother's Day!
And for those of us in the US - Happy Daylight Savings Time!!!
