Fall Back?

I will swear on my grave I hate the falling back of the clocks each year. It signals winter and darkness to me which I simply don't care for. It means cold days and colder nights. Toss in short days and I'm not really a fan.

I'm a Spring kinda girl and could pretty happily skip over Winter entirely I think...But in reality I know that's not really-really true and there are good things about the time change...
  1. Only 46 days until the days get longer
  2. I will never adjust to the time change so I should be on time for work every day now
  3. "Falling Back" typically coincides with the end of football season for the kiddos
  4. The end of football means more free unstructured time - which I LOVE
  5. I will go to bed earlier because the chill will chase me to my soft warm bed
  6. I will use the crockpot more because it's easy, smalls good and I will be indoors more
  7. The holidays are upon us which signal vacation time to me
What else? I don't know, cause really-really, I don't like the short days.

    I love changing the clocks back, love the Winter and the darkness and LOVE the snow. tee hee hee, you're not getting any sympathy here darling.

    One positive is, Winter in VA really isn't much more than Fall on steroids.

    "Fall on steroids" made me laugh. I wouldn't mind some of that - I can't stand our long and sometimes unbearable winters. Although it is 70 degrees today so we need to soak it up while we can.

  3. I feel your pain. I'm trying to fight the depression all this darkness brings, I really am. More than anything I dread the fact the dogs will be so restless without the freedom to run outside as much. You know what happens when they get bored.

    I know what you mean about having more free time in the winter. I already have my list of on-going winter projects pulled out of my desk.

  4. Great list! I've already taken advantage of steps 5 and 6. One thing I thought of today - no lawn mowing. That should free up some time on the weekends!
