lovely, just lovely

So our elected geniuses over at good ol' Foggy Bottom decided that one hour less sleep was just what the doctor ordered. Somehow, the fact that I will be up an hour earlier, turning on the lights an hour earlier, and turning on the microwave, coffee maker, and goodness know what else is going to save us a lot on energy. Pardon me if I feel confused...I'm not feeling particularly more energetic at the moment. In fact, I feel quite lethargic. Daylight savings is one of the stupidest ideas anyone has ever had. Ever.

Perhaps it is a conspiracy.

I have always regarded Daylight Savings in similar regard, but that was when it started on the 1st Sunday in April. This is going too far (or too near, depending upon how you look at it).

It is most annoying, but I am beginning to get used to the fact that Mass is now at 8:00 instead of 9:00 and my siblings will soon be getting up at 6:00 (or supposed to be) instead of 7:00.

Anyway supposedly they are doing some sort of energy consumption study, which means using a lot of time, money and resources to discover a result already obvious to any of average intellect. Ah well.

Of course, it depends how many and how small the siblings are...I'm all alone these days, so I don't have to worry about that.

I hate it, as well. But that's nothing compared to the havoc it plays with the kids. What a mess.
