Daylight Savings

March Slice of Life

March Slice of Life

I had a very difficult time waking up this morning.  I attempted to go back to sleep, but my husband kept nudging me.  I ignored it, but after the third time I asked him what is the matter?!  He said  it is time to get up.  I rolled over and said I am too tired, I need to sleep a little more.  He got up and brought me coffee and I dragged myself out of bed.  I felt like my eyes were half slits and my head was groggy.  I managed to get dressed and ready and left about a half hour later than usual.  As I walked the halls of my school I was wondering how in the world I would make it through the day.  I felt exhausted.  Other teachers shared with me they were feeling the same way.  We looked out the window seeing the snow begin to fly wishing that maybe we would have a half day.

Miraculously within the second hour of the school day my head cleared, I felt  a renewed energy.  I blame my students for catching me in their net of enthusiasm.  My enthusiasm continued when I left the school building in daylight.

  1. You are not alone…as one 6 year old said to me, “I am just not all here yet.”

    It is a little hard to understand how missing only one hour can feel like it takes days to catch up.

    Completely empathizing with you on your start to the day! If my husband hadn’t awakened me I might not have made it to school! Glad your day turned out so positively.

    I am re-surprised every year at how hard DST hits me! Nice to have students to energize you!
