Friday Fun...Am I Falling Back or Forward?

Friday Fun...Am I Falling Back or Forward?

 

It looks like once again, many of us will be going through the change...the time change. I am not overly fond of this for purely selfish reasons. It often takes me two weeks for my internal time clock to adjust. 

 

Some say that at least it’s lighter when children are waiting on the school bus or walking to school. (do children still walk to school?)

 

I get it...we were out walking by 7:15 yesterday and it was still dark out. I would not recommend it if you are by yourself!

 

On Sunday, after we have reset our clocks, I will not know if I’m really hungry because it’s beyond time for dinner or what?  See what I mean!

 

Another thing… I was looking at the Sunday television schedule to see what NFL games and NASCAR races would be on and wondered…

What do they do with the extra hour??

Some will ask you “What will you do with the extra hour?”  For the agents reading this, I have a feeling you’ll spend that time preparing for your Open House or negotiating a contract. 

 

 

 

And, by the way, since you have that extra hour, does that mean you will be compelled to work an hour more?  Will you feel the need to do something extraordinary with that extra hour...or will you be in the moment and just enjoy it?



Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. Carl Sandburg

I remember living bak East, and that first Sunday it got dar at 4pm.  Love it here in AZ, where we leave the clocks alone.   We made it to Friday, weekend is near.  Thanks again for your post.  Finish the week with a productive day.  bill

Good morning Kathy Streib ,

Most all kids in Canyon Creek walk to school (unless its raining) with their parents. I love seeing everyone out in the mornings on my walk! On Sunday don't forget  the N.Y.City Marathon and my granddaughter Hailey will be running! I know she is happy to get an extra hour to rest before the race!

As it ill be getting cooler up here it means wait a little longer before going out to rake the leaves. Walking on frosted grass will destroy the grass roots

Honestly, I hate the changing of the clocks. I wish we could just split the difference, move it a half hour, and leave it alone...lol

It is that time of year again. Thanks for sharing. I loved this quote:

Kathy, I really thought CO would move towards having NO TIME CHANGE, but haven't heard it will stop.   UGH, it does take a week or more to get our bodies back to normal.

Hi Norma J. Elkins I see children waiting on the school bus with their parents and like my great nephews, there's always at least one parent at the bus stop. 

Wayne Martin Most of the people I've spoken to would just as soon do away with it.

Kat Palmiotti I agree. Haven't we learned that it's not nice to mess with or fool mother nature. 

Michael Jacobs I think some of the schools have gotten away from books and use tablets or laptops now.

Brian England it's far too confusing for me so I'm not going to try to figure it out for you! But I hope you will so we'll see you on Tuesday.

Bill Salvatore - YVP Blog you are very lucky!!!! Enjoy your weekend. 

Dorie Dillard Austin TX Way to go, Hailey!!!!  I primarily see children waiting at the school bus stop with at least one parent around and at the end of the day, there's a parent waiting for them.

Ed Silva In the summer, we head out early to beat the heat, and now that it's getting colder, we wait just a bit hoping it will warm up. 

Hannah Williams Hope you catch up on your sleep!!!!  Moving is exhausting.

Pat Champion I thought Florida looked at doing away with the time change a few years ago.

Joan Cox it was so dark the other morning there is no way I would have walked by myself. I'm glad Larry was there. 


Will Hamm I'm not sure if we'd ever have all of the states vote for it, but you never know.

Kathy I am not a fan of these time changes either, even though I get an extra hour sleep on Sunday.

It really hasn't bothered me much...although I did just finish breakfast, which is late if it were 10:30, but today it is actually 11:30. HaHa

Maybe I should just call it brunch and move on.
