Dear Daylight Savings Hour,

UM?  Excuse me…

5 pm and TOTAL darkness?!


You know what else is CRAZY?! How dirty our windows are!

It’s true. We have a problem.

We are completely, totally, unapologetically, open-mouth breathing, sweaty palms pressed to the panes addicted, to this.

The 10am sunrise, showing tomorrow at 9am.

Come back daylight savings  hour.  Please?

(And, for the record: I’m  talkin’  like tomorrow, not this Spring.   I’ll have all the daylight I need come Spring. Does George Vernon Hudson hate me or something?)

Let’s start a petition,


P.S.  Thank you for supporting my mission to live and holding all  “just wait …” comments.  Denial is a beautiful and very effective survival mechanism.

  1. To make you feel a little bit better, it’s dark here in Edmonton, AB at 5 PM as well. Plus, our windows are dirty from the nose of our miniature schnauzer! Enjoy the Northern Lights 🙂

  2. Thanks EO! Does your puppy like the sunrise too?

    • No, she just sticks her nose on the window to see who’s walking by so she can bark at them! Getting dark sooner is actually a bonus for us, since it’s harder to see the people outside 🙂

  3. And out of the darkness comes the light! I guess you should meditate, (hah! with a 3 year old and 14 month old at your side), on how amazing it is to not have to wake at crazy hours to see beautiful sunrises! Hang in there Kaboodle. ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Namaste 🙂

  4. The last 2 pics on this post are beautiful!!!
