What Are We Saving Time For?

So Sunday was the beginning of Daylight Savings Time and as usual, I am exhausted two days in.  No matter what the clock says, my body KNOWS what time it really is!   I usually hit the bed at 10pm and am asleep by 10:30 (if not earlier!)  Last night when 10pm rolled around, I was working around the house and ended up watching Lost Girl with my daughter.  I finally headed to bed at 11pm (with my body knowing full well that it was only 10pm!)  Unfortunately, when the alarm went of at 5:30am, my body ALSO knew that is was only 4:30am and I had another hour to sleep.  I am not really sure that I understand why we do this anymore.  It takes so long to adjust to the time change and everyone is cranky (or maybe just me!)  My vote is to end DST and move on.  Just leave the clock where it is and let me keep that extra hour of sleep.

SMILE.....It's FRIDAY!!!

What's Better than AWESOME?

Today I told someone they were awesome and he said that his wife was used to awesome so now she was expecting stupendous.  Stupendous does not ring the same bell in my head as awesome although the online dictionary tells me that Awesome is "very impressive" while stupendous is "extremely impressive."  In my search for something better than awesome, I found this post from last year and it made me laugh (out loud even!)  So I wanted to share:


Apparently awesome is being overused!

March for Babies

We have a lot of charity events where I work but the one I support with my whole heart is the March of Dimes.  Their mission is to help every baby be born healthy.  Fourteen years ago, my son was born prematurely and he didn't live much past his birth.  I was heartbroken that Alexander would not be coming home with us and it was the end of my hopes of having more children.  My wish would be that no family ever has to go through the heartbreak of losing a child because they were premature. 

This April, I will once again be participating in the March for Babies.  I am hoping to raise $200 for this event.  If you are interested in helping me reach my goal, here is a link to donate:


Every dollar helps....no amount is too small!
