Net Zero

How do you zero out the effects of springing forward? 

  1.  Give hubby and special needs son permission to sleep in and not go to church.  Why fight the need for sleep and mess up the whole adjustment period?
  2. Take naps.
  3. Eat take out (I know .. eww)
  4. Open the windows to let in fresh air.  Hooray .. it was 52F outside. 
  5. Take a walk.
  6. Sit on the front porch rocker.
OK .. That was hubby and son.  I on the other hand did not take my own advice and got up two hours early (4:45 AM .. which was really 3:34 AM) to bake bread, prep a Sunday school lesson to teach our church's preschoolers.  Tis true:  A husband works from sunup to sundown .. but a mother's work is never done.  Touché!
