Startled awake by my alarm. I reluctantly attempt to disentangle myself from the murky depths far beyond wakefulness.
Through sleep-glazed eyes I hit what I hope is the snooze button on my phone, could be the home button, I do not care. Anything just makes this screeching stop!
I blissfully returned to the depths from which I briefly emerged.
Ah, blessed rest.
The screeching again disturbs the serenity of my resting space and again I battle the murky gloom.
Squinting attempting to see.
The time reads 05:20 AM … I groan ever so deeply in my soul, dear God why…I should be born rich … why am I not rich?
I throw the covers off and, my day begins.
Daylight Savings Time, I have never understood it’s relevance in my life. I know it’s historical significance, but does it really still apply? Still necessary?
If this is truly Daylight Saving … why have I lost my time?
Tomorrow will be better, I think. The body will soon be adjusted and the difference I will notice no longer.
But, just for today…Daylight Savings time has left me bereft!
How do you cope with the time changes?
