Daylight Savings - Yeah!!!

February 28th, 2010 at 01:56 am

Stormy stormy stormy.

So, I walked out of work at 4pm, and all I Saw was blue skies?

I was GIDDY. Grabbed the kids and took them on a bike ride to the park. Knew it would be WET, but we played frisbee. & got quite muddy, yes. Funny thing, is we are often the only ones out for a walk, or at the park, etc. But the place was actually pretty crowded. I was shocked anyone else was out. Blue skies and sun - but a wet mess all the same.

LM did awesome on his bike - rode all the way by himself - navigating the curb to street a little better...

Then it hit me it was almost Daylight Savings. I LOVE Daylight Savings. I think it is the only way I can REALLY function as a working mom. I can come home and get hours of play time in the fresh air. In the summers we go swimming after dinner, etc. (Because it's too hot before dinner).

& then I remembered that Daylight Savings comes super early these days. The day? March 14! Woohoo!


Dh and the kids even cleaned up the house a bit while I worked all day. They must WANT something. Kissing up for the TV, I suppose. That also lightened my mood, quite a bit.


Dh HATES Daylight Savings. I understand the principle behind it is kind of stupid. Especially the early Daylight Savings. BUT, wish he would just be happy for me. & if I come home and take the kids to the park every night - he should be happy for himself, too. Big Grin


I suppose we don't get many storms here. OR maybe it's the El Nino. But the skies have just been AMAZING. Maybe you will think, "Hasn't this girl ever seen a storm?" Big Grin

Pictures from when we snuck a bike ride between storms, last weekend:

& though I don't make it a habit to snap pictures while driving, the sky was just amazing the other night on my drive home.

After snapping the last one, I walked into walgreens for a few minutes, and the blue skies were gone when I walked out. Blink, and you miss it, it seems.

Of course, according to Facebook, there were also quite a few "Double Rainbow" sightings. I missed those!

Anyway, I suppose I should hope for some blue skies along with that Daylight Savings...

    So funny,I worked out in my front yard today, cleaned things up and I asked DH if he got home in time to see what I had done before it got dark (I was at CVS saving money when he got home) He mentioned that two more weeks before daylight savings, which means we will work in the yard until 7:30 and eat dinner late, I love daylight savings too, but then so does DH.
