Daylight Savings Time Is a Cheat
I was looking forward to an extra hour of sleep this morning, but animals keep us honest, even about time.
Jack's "personal needs" do not recognize arbitrary changes to our clocks and I was up at 6 a.m., or actually 7 a.m....but now I'm confused about what hour it would normally be if we didn't keep switching our clocks. What I do know is I'm up way too early.
Of course once I was up--brewing coffee, checking email, preparing to be extra-productive instead of extra-rested--Jack saw no reason for my nice, soft pillow to just lie there unused. And as long as I'm the one who is now up and whining where the heck is the rest of this household? Sound asleep in bed.
