Isn’t it great how the days have grown longer…again? An hour more to do what you want, an hour earlier to have to wake up. Yep, I bet you never thought of it in that way huh, so we get to enjoy the sunshine for an extra hour, but what price for an hour of our sleep! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for more daylight but my body is not so quick adjusting to those changes. All winter it was trained to wake up a few hours after sunrise but now I have to retrain my body clock. Now why am I telling you all this, well firstly I want some sympathy! Am I the only one who is having trouble getting up in the mornings? And secondly, I want to relieve my guilty conscience that it's not entirely my fault for not being able to get up in the mornings.
Hey, so what if I want to blame someone else other than myself for not being able to be on time, I’m only human. I’m not actually like this (sniff sniff) I’m actually a very punctual person (crying sounds), its all because somebody decided that on a certain Saturday, to put all clocks an hour ahead (hey some sympathy please! =). We should have been warned, oh the horror of it all…sigh…nobody thinks of all of the people who have trouble waking up in the mornings, and if that ain’t enough, now we are forced to wake up even earlier. How come we weren’t given a trial run for a week just to see if we are going to be able to make it until winter? Heck, there is nearly a trial run period for everything these days; you‘re unenthusiastic about buying a non wrinkle cream, try it for 30 days and if your not satisfied you get your money back! Why don't we get a chance to try this “getting up an hour early” thing and see if we are satisfied with it…
