One Odd Day

So, what do Arizona and Hawaii have in common besides sunshine? These states do not observe Daylight Savings Time (DST) but stay on “standard time” all year round. I grew up in Arizona but now live in North Carolina. Sometimes, when I tell people that we never messed with our clocks when I was a kid they look at me like I’m strange (and not for the usual reasons) 🙂

What do you mean you didn’t fall back or spring forward? How odd.

I am writing this post at 5:30am on a Sunday morning. Yesterday it would have been 6:30am. Now you tell me what is odd.

I am an early riser. My internal clock woke me up at 4:30am this morning (5:30am yesterday) but I forced myself to close my eyes and attempted to go back to sleep.

My seven year old son is an early riser. His internal clock woke him up at 5:08am this morning (6:08am yesterday) and he did not force himself to close his eyes and attempt to go back to sleep.

So, as I sit and drink my coffee this morning, I am attempting to look at the benefits of falling back…because it certainly DOES NOT mean I get to “fall back into bed and get one more hour of sleep.”

Benefits Of Falling Back

1. More time with my son
2. More time to drink coffee
3. More lollygagging time before heading to church

Hmm…maybe this isn’t so bad after all!
