I am so thrilled to go back on DST. Ironically, I hate making the change-over because I don't really like going to bed earlier and REALLY don't like getting up earlier. But I am sick to death of walking the dog in the dark every night; it's depressing and boring, trudging around at night in the cold and looking through other people's windows where it's light and warm.

Now, I can actually see things while we walk! What a concept! And no orange glaring street lights, but sweet sweet sun.

The pup had ear surgery last Tuesday and was in no shape to walk until the weekend, and unfortunately that meant I got no exercise either. We had two nice outings over the weekend (even with the cone on his silly little head, poor dog), and now I can look forward to walking in the daylight every day, not just on the weekends. Maybe even a weekday hike or two ... And as the days keep getting longer, I might even be able to lure my daughter out to a tennis court after dinner.

Bliss, bliss, bliss. Spring, bring it on.

    I love DST. I dread the November time change - it puts me out of sync all the way until the time changes back!!

    I agree, I am so glad that we can finally get home and still have daylight to walk in.
