I Hate the Time Change!!!

I hate the time change! I'm even going to go out on a limb and say that I personally believe it CAUSED my CFS! (OK, maybe the dates don't really match up, but it is still my official scapegoat.)

I followed my normal routine yesterday: took my rests when I was supposed to, went to bed at my normal time, fell asleep reasonably fast. I think I slept pretty well last night.

Then, I woke up at 6:11 am. A full 39 minutes before I need to. I couldn't get back to sleep! I got the kids up at 6:50 am, and I thought I'd slip back to sleep then (my husband takes over from there). Nope -- still up at 8 am. I'm about to cave and get up, when I finally drift back to sleep. Then in and out of sleep, not peacefully, until it's 10 am, and I have to drag myself out of bed or I am So Out of Luck (that's what the acronym stands for, right?)! To heck with yoga and even making my bed. I'll worry about the bed after my first rest.

Ugh! I am dragging and miserable! My eyes are twitching already -- never a good sign! I have been typing nonsense words while trying to get this post out; I've had to go back and erase three or four already. I feel a zombie day ahead of me. I can hardly wait to get to bed tonight. Just nine and a half more hours to go!
