Sprung Forward

Do you have difficulty adjusting to the time change?  What is the purpose of this fiddling around with the clocks again?  They say it is a lost hour.  Well, it's a heck of a lot more lost time than that.  Every single *%#@ electronic appliance has a clock on it.  The car clock needs to be changed.  Then, of course, there are the actual clocks.  Every single one of these time pieces has a different method of modifying the time.  Some are pretty obvious, others require finding manuals and then locating the time setting procedure somewhere within.  No wonder I feel a bit wobbly and lost today.

Fortunately for us, we are the organized types who know exactly where to find the owner's manuals to everything we have in the house.  Unfortunately for us, we will have to go abut setting clocks once again when we get back to Vermont.

I am the queen of three ring binders and plastic page protectors.

  1. OH, you're one of THOSE!
    We have a drawer in the kitchen dedicated to manuals. I believe there are manuals in there that belong to things that no longer belong to us. I like to think of it as a kind of history of our appliances... :-p

  3. Well, you could just stay there till they adjust back again in the Fall. Then the Vt. ones would be right.
    I love DST. I am a day person.

  4. I am also a 3-ring binder/plastic page sleeve person. You can't beat that system as far as I'm concerned.

    Now that you mention Vermont, when will you be heading back to that part of the world?

  5. I don't think about the time change much. Being retired and clueless helps.

  7. I know what you mean! I woke at 4:30 this morning which wouldn't have been so bad last week as I like to get up at 6am anyway! It was still dark at 6:30am! I vote to abolish day light savings time. I wonder how the presidential candidates feel about that?

  8. The clocks are not my problem although the microwave is always a challenge. For me the time change problem is the cats! Setting the clocks forward is no problem but in the fall when we set them back the cats think I should still get up at the regular time and feed them! 4:30??? Takes at least a week for their internal clocks to reset.
