Like Seinfeld, It’s About Nothing

Oh wow!  Oh man!  You might know from reading past blog posts that I am not a fan of Daylight Saving Time.  I actually wish we did NOT have Daylight Saving Time.  I also believe that the time change itself is bad for us.  I think it is bad for us in the sense that it messes with our body’s clock.  “Losing” and “gaining” an hour is just hard on the BMES.  So this time change we “GAINED” an hour, but everyone I have talked to is exhausted.  I remember this from the past couple of years, too.  I remember thinking how odd it is that we “GAIN” an hour, but everyone is so tired.  Could be because our animals/pets don’t understand that we have changed the clock so they still want to be on the schedule they have been trained to be on for the last eight months.  So they are waking us up, they are expecting to be fed, played with and walked at the same time they have been for the last eight months!  I feel that even though it is only an hour it really messes with things.  So, I have been really tired this week, how about you?

And I said, “The board-” And her face changed as she realized, and she says, “Yeah, I saw that, too, and thought the same thing.”  I think she saw the panic in my face.  She had to have heard it in my voice.

It has just been a busy kind of week.  Busy isn’t really the right word, but I tend to use that word, it is more like tiring and well, I don’t know.  It has me sitting here at 11:17 on a Saturday night writing about how my week flew by, and I forgot about the game tonight so I didn’t write my post during the day when I should have.  They lost, by the way.

You?  What did you do on Saturday night?  How are you adjusting to the time change?  Ever have weeks that aren’t really “busy”, but are full?

Goodie Jar – Check In #2

Posted by terrepruitt on February 8, 2013

This is my second “Goodie Jar” or “Good Things Jar” check-in. Since I am putting a note of “good things” that have happened into a jar to read on December 31, 2013, I think I might stick to this title and number.  Not sure yet, but as of now, it sounds like a good idea.

So far I have seven things in my pitcher.  I say things because most of them are notes I made to document the memory or event, but one is a “love note” I received from a friend.  She has created a set of cards from her doodles and I purchased a set.  A love note comes with the set.   The note made me happy and brought up additional memories so I thought it would be a perfect addition to the jar because it is a good thing and will be a reminder of many good things.  One of the other things is the jar is miniature copies of our tickets to a Sharks game.  It was my first one and it was really fun, so I added that as a good thing.

As I have stated, if you are participating you don’t have to share what is in your jar unless you want to tells us your good things.  I just thought I would share to give you an idea of what I am putting in our jar.

Since this is our second week hopefully you have at least two things in your jar.  So?  Are you putting things in your jar?  How many do you have?
