I have a real reason to love daylight savings time this year. Yes, many of you got to sleep in an hour, but I have missed out on that benefit for years now. My kids' body clocks take a while to adjust. (It's Wednesday and they are still getting up at the 5 o'clock hour!)
I started swimming this year with Audra and (sometimes) Marea. We swim in an outdoor pool, because you can do that in California. However, the early mornings have been getting colder and colder and darker and darker. Although it can be amazing to watch the sunrise, it has been increasingly more difficult to get out of bed in the morning, and even more difficult to plunge my body into the water while it's dark.
But this morning was different. It felt at least ten degrees warmer and it was light!
So here's to daylight savings.
