It's the most wonderful time of the year....

If you could see me now, you'd know exactly how rested I look. Actually, if you could see me now, you'd probably encourage me to get new pajamas, but that's beside the point.

Because today is the first day I've taken advantage of Daylight Savings Time.

I wish that there were more words in the English language that described how fantastic I feel in these first few days after the turn of the clock. Today I got up ON TIME (versus hitting my snooze button for way too long). Today I jumped out of bed and felt awesome.

And for me, it's always like this.

From now until spring, I am in my zone. I'm habitually on time (or EARLY!) to work during this segment of the year. I feel better and I feel more energized.

I was meant to live in this time zone. I was meant to wake up for work when it's light out.

And for the record, I feel that it's unfair of the residents of Arizona to be able to live with this luxury all year long without sharing. I mean, what is Arizona's time zone called? AST? Well, it can also be Anne Standard Time, thankyouverymuch.

That's why I'm refusing to change my clocks in the spring.

You've been warned.

It's all fun and games until you have a kid. And then it's like, "What the hell time is it? And why can't I eat/sleep/ scream right now!!!!????" And that's just me.

We don't change our time here in Japan and it drives me crazy that at 6am my room is light enough for me to see. TOO EARLY. Of course, it's better than having to walk my kid to school in the dark. So there's that, I guess.
