May I just say that I detest the spring switch to Daylight Savings Time.
Every year it messes with my system. And I thought it was just me until I logged on to Facebook this morning and read at least ten other people's comments on dealing with insomnia last night. At least it makes me feel better to not be alone in this frustration.
And, in case you've never experienced it (oh fortunate you!) insomnia is absolutely no fun at all. It's horrible laying in bed awake when the whole rest of the world seems far away in dreamland, leaving you behind.
It's almost enough to make a person want to move to Saskatchewan, where the smart citizens have chosen to ignore Daylight Savings and keep their morning light.
Finally, I would like to set the record straight about who is responsible for implementing this hour-changing nonsense. There is a common misconception that it is the farmers of the world who want later daylight.
Wrong. It is NOT the farmers' fault. They would get up with the daylight regardless of when it occurred. It is the white/blue collar workers who are to blame. Who want more evening hours to go golfing. Or to spend time with their families in the daylight. I get that. But I still don't think it's enough to warrant messing with our sleep/wake schedules.
