It's the most wonderful time of the year

March 11th, 2012 at 05:19 pm

**LOVE** Daylight Savings. Actually, it totally snuck up on me.

Dh is grumpy because he hates it (just picture him as a vampire - not more light! Not waking up earlier!!!).

I could do with daylight savings replacing regular time (& skipping all this back and forth). But, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't bother me.

**I finished Grandma's taxes. & that's a wrap! Still waiting for a couple of things for my folks, but theirs' is mostly done. That's all the charity tax work I can squeeze out, but it seemed to go pretty fast this year.

I still don't know if in-laws did their taxes. I still think they will be surprised by how high their taxes will be in retirement. I am sure we will talk about it later.

**Reminds me, dh's sister got a job. She got laid off about a year ago, and wasn't even looking for a job. {I know - know one wants to hear about it! Jobs falling from the sky? Rolleyes }

Dh's family is no more a pile of deadbeats. I guess mine isn't either since my sister is gainfully employed now too. Wink

Actually, our families are good savers, and everyone dealt with unemployment just fine. There was just a time in there where *everyone* was unemployed.

**I got some chores done this weekend. First haircut in ages. Have to cut LM's hair a bit. Got some groceries while I Was out (ran out of cat food). Updated my credit card at the gym. Stuff I have been far too lazy to do!

Of course, I forgot I had a Target return. Tempted to run out and just do it, but think I will just do it on the way home some day, to save gas.

**Dh is making a wonderful greek chicken dish in the crockpot. Smells divine!

Oh - the dish was chosen because we had leftover potatoes from corn beef and cabbage night. A frugal choice to use up items on hand.

    I love DST too. Extra scooting time! More energy! Less time to be at risk of drivers who believe headlights at night are "OPTIONAL."

    Yes, I prefer DST. But greatly dislike the actual switch. Would much prefer that we just stick to it.

    I love this, too. I don't mind the dark mornings, so I agree... could just leave it like this year-round.

    The switch is what is so hard! I think the first two days are okay, but then the next two are when it all starts to catch up with you. Come Tuesday, I'm gonna have some kids who will have a hard time getting out of bed!

    I am re-thinking my love of daylight savings - seems everyone is cranky today. Wink
    It will be the most wonderful time of the year, once everyone adjusts...

    I like the dark mornings and light well into evening, but I absolutely hate the switch! I need my sleep! Smile
