Daylight Savings Time Nightmare

I hate daylight savings. Hate every minute of it. I think it is stupid. Why it can't be the same time all year is beyond me. I don't buy into the "adding more daylight" to the mornings gig. Now it will be dark before we even have dinner ready. And who gets an extra an hour of sleep in the fall? Certainly not me. My children still wake up at their "regular" time - however because we had to change the clocks it is an hour earlier. You can't exactly tell a 3 year old to go back to sleep when they already slept 12 hours now can you? And then a few months from now they will take an hour out of our day and tell it is will provide more daylight for the summer months - Why? So our kids won't want to go to bed on time because it is "Not dark yet mommy".

Sorry, Just had to vent.

If it ain't broke, they shouldn't
be fixin' it! It's depressing leaving work when it's dark, and not very safe.

I know what you mean. I think all it does is wreak (sp?) havoc with our lives!!!

All this darkness makes me very unproductive. I have been wanting to go to bed at 7:00.
Sad but true.
