daylight depression

Maybe I'm the only one, but turning our clocks back DEPRESSES me. This happens to be Steve's favorite day of the year (yet again, a way we differ.) He claims he can do a million things with that extra hour. And then I remind him we have 2 kids that prevent us from using the current hours we have wisely, let alone this "so-called" extra hour (which I happen to believe is a pharse anyhow.)

What do we get in return? Sunset at 4:30 in the afternoon! In fact, I'm looking at my clock right now (3:40) and I'm looking at the shadows in the house across the street and Im thinking there is now way I can muster up excitement for this "fall back." I'm 36 years old and have been doing this for sometime so it comes as no suprise. It takes me about a week to stop complaining, get with the program and then start looking forward to the middle of January when there starts to be some hope around the corner of the days lengthening. At least this year at our house we don't have the double whammy of short days AND a new born. There is something to be said for timing things up to have a baby in the spring or summer!
