Five Things I HATE about Daylight Savings


I typically never use the H word, but once a year I need to get this out of my system. 

Yes, I absolutely HATE the whole Daylight Savings Thing, and here's why:
I HATE getting up in the dark!


Getting up in the morning is the hardest part of my day.
It just started being semi-light when I get up, and now it will be dark again.
I HATE losing an hour of my weekend!

Well, don't you?

I HATE what the time change does to my little ones!

Some adapt easily, but it's tough on most of them. It takes a couple of weeks before they're no longer cranky in the mornings.


I HATE that people think it saves electricity. 

Studies show it doesn't. People also think it was originally created because of farmers. The farmers didn't want it. They get up with the roosters anyway.


I HATE that not everyone follows Daylight Savings Time.

I think I'll move to Arizona.


Thanks for letting me get it out of my system. That's the extent of my using the H word until next year at this time.

  1. Oh, my goodness...I'm so glad I'm not the only one! We have our PARCC PBA testing this coming week, and my fear (that I'm working on letting go...!) is that the time change will throw off my students. I'm praying that it won't. Anywho, I'm right there with you...I HATE the time change!!!!!

  3. I HATE losing an hour, too. I get up at 4:44AM every day (without an alarm) and I'm at the gym by 5:30AM. School starts at 8AM. It's that one thing I get to do JUST FOR ME before all the endless demands of the day begin. Less gym time for me until I can adjust.

  4. I hate it too. It takes a whole week for my body to adjust to the new schedule. You wouldn't think a little hour would matter...But it does!

  5. Hi! I'm following the blogs of all the Vegas bound bloggers on the TpT forum thread. I'd love it if you followed my blog, itsabouttimeteachers.blogspot.com.

  6. Oh my goodness, this could be my mantra today!! I'm already exhausted, and it takes me a week or so to adjust to this one too! Plus, let's add to the fun - - our school starts PARCC today... However, it is what it is. I will be as happy and awake as I can to keep my kiddos positive and relaxed! I see a bubble bath and a glass of wine in my early evening plans!
