Have you recovered from the time change jet-lag yet? Did the time change throw off your school week as much as it did mine? (Though maybe some of our slippage has been about the kids all recovering from colds?)[inlinkz_linkup id=465363 mode=1]
The time change kicked me in the derrière. But I was already down and out anyway. It’s like taking candy from a baby. So Easy to throw me off.
The fall back time change almost never bothers me. The spring forward time change has me dragging for weeks.
We’re up early, so we love the autumn time change, as it gives us back the sunrise 🙂
Now, the loss of the hour in spring? That’s hellacious.
I never was before, Melanie. From about the age of 18 I was regularly up until one o’clock in the morning every night, and, job permitting, was in bed until ten o’clock in the morning. I followed that pattern with my children too. I didn’t care if they were awake until ten at night because i’d stay up so late myself. …. But of course, I couldn’t stay in bed that long in the morning anymore, and so spect a couple f decades chronically sleep deprived.
All of this changed **dramatically** with the onset of the brain tumor! Now we are all three of us in bed with lights out at 9PM, and we are up together the next morning at 6:30. I need it for my sleep, my health in general but also, the discipline of it, the rising early, there’s something about it that, I don’t know … It just plain *feels* good. And! We are all so well-rested now, and ready to go in the morning. It’s wonderful. And for teens, who need more sleep, it is strongly encouraged that they regularly get to bed early. So i am glad that I can model this now for them. I can see how it would have been better for my own self, all those years, to have better sleep habits.
Oh, the time change jet lag totally wears me out, and I’m a morning person!
