My boyfriend and I were talking about groundhog day, and how it is fast approaching. I think the entire concept of groundhog day is a little bit silly – waking up a poor hibernating critter to see if it sees its shadow or not is just plain silly. If it’s sunny out, of course it is going to see its shadow (if it looks!) Just let the poor thing sleep for crying out loud! I mean they say if he sees his shadow, it’s six more weeks of winter, if he doesn’t, then we’ll have spring in six weeks. Well, what is the difference? Six of one, half a dozen of the other. It makes no sense at all to me, really!
Well, it has taken a few days for my body to adjust to the Daylight Savings Time. I find that I have a harder time adjusting to the spring change than to the autumn change. The hardest part is convincing my stomach that it really is NOT time to eat yet! My stomach disagrees mightily with me on that point!
I was reading a news article about how the experts say that the idea behind Daylight Savings Time was to save energy, but that recent research suggests that has NOT been the result; in fact the opposite is true. MORE energy has been spent on air conditioning offices in the summer time. The experts have suggested (from what I understand ) that the Daylight Savings Time be completely abandoned. I would like to say that I would really like just stick with one or the other, this back and forth business is awful!
