Remember Texoma – You’re Going to be Very Tired Next Week
I really wish the powers that be would stop jacking with my sleep.
Have you ever met anyone who likes time changes? I haven’t. Yet, here we are doing the same silly exercise twice a year.
And this Sunday (March 13) we’ll do it all over again. It’s time to “spring forward” as they say and move the clocks ahead one hour at 2:00 am.
This means your alarm will go off an hour early on Sunday if you’re the church-going type. And if you’re like me, you’ll spend the rest of the day disoriented as hell. In fact, as I get older, I’m disoriented for about a week after the time changes.
Don’t get me wrong – I actually like Daylight Saving Time. I love the fact that I can actually do some work outside or go play a little disc golf when I get off work in the evenings. It’s just that I hate the adjustment.
So obviously, I’m firmly in the camp of those who want Daylight Saving Time to become the norm year-round.
And if the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021 passes, that’s exactly what will happen. I’m not sure what the hold-up is because the bill had overwhelming bipartisan support, but according to Bill Track 50, it's been in committee since February 2, 2021.
Hopefully, Congress will get to work on that thing and pass it sooner rather than later. Because I would love nothing more than for this Sunday to mark the last time we have to adjust our clocks.
