Spring Forward, Fall into Nap

Happy first-Monday of Daylight Savings Time my darlings. I love that with our spring forward the light lingers longer in the evenings and that the warmth of summer is officially on its way. I am more encouraged to get out and run (who are we kidding, walk/crawl) around White Rock Lake when I get home from work during the week. Or enjoy a chilled beverage with friends on the patio of one of Dallas’ many fine establishments. All that said, we are going to have to spring forward about a week for me to start actually feeling that joy. 

Isn’t amazing how losing one hour of one day can throw your whole inner time clock out of whack for a good week or so? Over the weekend I saw someone tweeted that Daylight Savings Time is like a bad hangover that lasts for a week–and it’s so true. Our body needs time to readjust and settle back into the new timing.

So, this morning when I heard on the local news that today has been deemed National Nap Day, I immediately wondered how empty the office would be and would it actually be possible for me to fit in a nap around, oh 2 or 3 p.m.  (That’s not actually true. I did think that, but not until after I thought how ridiculous it is that we have so many idiotic “national holidays” in this country. Who comes up with this stuff?)

So, here’s wishing you all a lovely nap-filled Monday and a week filled with sunshine and warmth!
