Daylight Savings Time – Me No Likey

I dislike daylight savings time.

Truly, truly dislike it.

At about 4:00 pm yesterday things were difficult around here.

There was tons of whining, lots of dragging, and plenty of annoying moments.

And that was just from my husband and me.

And yet there were cries of disbelief when bedtime was announced,  “But it’s light out. We never go to bed when it’s light outside!”

So I would like to propose we get rid of Daylight Savings time.

Who wants to have it get darker later? Certainly no parent I know.

At least let’s get rid of the “springing forward” part.

I’m all in favor of just falling back every couple of years.

Or you know what would be better?

Let’s just add an extra day in – let’s do March 9th twice every year!

That way we can sleep in, have a lazy day, and still not miss a day of work.

So who’s with me? Let’s get rid of “springing forward” and just have March 9th twice!
