So it begins.

The time change hasn't even happened yet and I'm already feeling it, you guys. This happens every year. About a week before, I'll be sitting there when I'll suddenly feel like it is time for bed. Then I'll look at the clock and see that it's only 8pm and I'll be like, "UGHHH I HAVE TO STAY UP FOR SO MANY HOURS STILL. BEING 90 IS SO DIFFICULT." You know, because I'm actually 90. I've fooled you this entire time! Suckers.

ANYWAYS, this keeps happening throughout the week until the day it actually happens, at which point I am trying to go to bed at 4:30pm. But then the clock change finally happens and I wake up feeling HORRIBLE because I lost an hour of precious sleep. The first day is sort of okay, but it just seems to go downhill rapidly from that point. By the end of the week, I am basically a zombie. I am only capable of communicating in grunts and anything you say to me will cause me to either laugh hysterically or cry. There is no in-between. Just laugh or cry. Then suddenly it's the weekend again, so I sleep for like 12 years and I'm good to go.

It's going to be a pretty great two weeks, yo.

**EDIT** It has been pointed out that we actually gain an hour of sleep this time. I knew that, I think. Either way, this shifting of time makes my brain very confused! I'm still all messed up, whether we gain or lose an hour of sleep. You shouldn't be able to just move time like that. It's reckless!

I'm in the same boat, friend. I haven't been drinking coffee either, and that makes it worse.

The good news is, we actually gain an hour of sleep in the the fall. I think? It always confuses me.

Erin, you're right! See what this shift is doing to me already? I think we could all learn a thing or two from Saskatchewan. No time change!
