I know it's not original to be all cracked out by the time change.
Also, the nose thing just kills me. He'll grab it and squeeze. Sometimes he sticks his fingers in your nostrils. Sometimes he just pinches really pinchily. Which is kind of painful but still funny.
But the crackedoutness of the time.
I don't know anyone who likes it. And people get snarky about others writing Daylight Savings Time instead of Daylight Saving Time. And some people are like, "We're not getting on it, we're getting off it, moron. THIS is normal time."
That may be true, but you're still a crankypants because of lack of sleep. From the fucking time change.
Personally, I'd like to live on Daylight Saving Time all year round. Time is arbitrary anyway, no? So we all decide that 1 am is 2 am, or the reverse, and then it is, for us.
But that's not what this is about. It's about the fact that I always feel like time is being stolen from me, no matter which way.
Saturday night I was so stressed about getting to bed early.
At nine I was all, "We have to go to bed NOW. We're going to be up extra early! We'll get an hour less sleep!"
"No, we won't."
"Yes, we will. For Jordan, 7:30 will be 6:30 and he'll get up."
"And so will we."
"Yes. A whole hour earlier. We're getting an hour less."
"No. We're gaining an hour."
"And we lose it in the morning."
Nick was adamant that we weren't getting an hour less, because our 7:30 would be 6:30 as well. We were gaining an hour.
I know, I know, fall back - 2 am becomes 1 am and it's like driving to Chicago. Except you'd spend all that time driving, just to be one time zone back. I guess you could fly, although that's more expensive. So maybe if you were beamed there.
Actually, I'd love to suddenly be in Chicago. And have a whole extra hour. That, I get.
Also, how do I get on these tangents?
But this clock back but your kid is going to steal that hour right from under your nose, that I don't get.
Even though Nick insisted that we got the same amount of sleep. He's explained it to me 54 times. He's over it about as much as the rabies.
I still contend we lost time, getting up an hour earlier. I can't explain it.
