Daylight Savings sucks

Anyone who has spent any time with me whatsoever can tell you that in October I start getting absolutely giddy with anticipation for the ending of Daylight Savings. Of course now I have to wait until the first Sunday in November, but that is a whole nother story.
Ever since the time change a few weeks ago I have had the hardest time acclimating to an actual night schedule. I was doing really good getting to bed by midnight at the latest, but for the past couple weeks I can count on one hand the times I have actually made it to bed at a decent time. I still get up at the same time in the mornings, I am just not getting enough sleep. And it sucks. Alot.
This is why I have come up with a plan.....a plan that will get me back on track, and keep me on track forever.
Everyone needs to set their clocks back one hour. (I really gotta get that hour back) We will then never touch the clocks again. EVER.
Just think of it, there are lots of benefits to this. We will never have to deal with changing the big heavy clock that sits on the wall and has to be taken down in order to move the time forward(or backwards, as the case may be). We will never have to wonder which of the eleventy gazillion clocks in the house have already been changed and which ones haven't. We will never have to deal with trying to remember how to change the clock in the car, even though we have owned the same car for 6 years and have had to change it twice a year since owning it.
Of course I will have to deal with losing that giddy feeling when time change begins.....but I think I can live with that.

Although I do enjoy the extra daylight at the end of the day, I'm still having trouble getting out of bed in the morning!
