What are you going to do with your extra hour next Sunday?
Oh daylight savings time, you little minx you. It doesn't matter if I gain or lose and hour, it makes me a mess. I get the blues because there is less daylight, but I get to sleep sooner because it's dark. My wake up time is not 4 or 5 am, it is now 2 am because gangster kitty is a mess and her internal eating clock is off too. Once January rolls around, we almost have our shit together. Vicious cycle. Every. Single. Time.
So what will I do with my extra hour this Sunday? If you know me, time is a gift and the most valuable resource we have. We never get it back as it passes us by. As much as I complain about "falling back," I also realize I am being given an extra hour. What dollar amount would I put on it? None, because it is priceless. I am thrilled to get an hour more worth of sleep (maybe) and also excited to have a Sunday at home to start prepare for my winter hibernation routine - one where I do everything to not get depressed when I do not see daylight or it has snowed 17 inches for the 40th time this year. I use this extra hour to mentally prepare for another season in my life that requires a little patience and more self care. I know I will be a POS for a few weeks after DST but I also embrace this joyful gift of time.
