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!

I don't enjoy springing forward...takes me a bit to adjust, especially as I get older. We, did get take out on our way home from Church...Mexican and it was delicious. Big hugs.

I agree in not pushing our husbands to do thinigs. I know my Gunnar is doing the best that he can, and he gladly walks an extra mile with me.
I usually say, our best time is now, when we are realxing with a cup of coffee. The past is behind us, and the future we know nothing about. when we can sit down and have those golden moments of discussion, reading or just being, I find that wonderful.
Then again, Gunnar bakes his own bread. he is breadwinner in more than one way. We are both convinced that we do our best together and on our special fields.
God has taken away our abilities to be over achievers. I guess that is a blessing in disguise. We have been contributers and sowers. Now is our fall years, we are harvesting and feel at peace,---most of the time.

Well, reading your comment, Felisol, brings fresh memories and ideas. Today is 'fall back' day changing time once again. Perhaps I'll write a post on this. Thanks for stopping by.
