Spring is Coming

Spring is coming, I can see it!

I just don’t quite have the spring in my step.

The clocks jumped ahead this weekend and for some reason, it was tough on most of us in the house.  The two early birds in the family were quite grumpy as I shuttled them onto the bus this morning, in the dark.  Another child stumbled down the stairs an hour and fifteen minutes after his alarm went off, practically in tears, insisting that he hated daylight savings time and I had to fix it.  Ah, ok – I’ll get right on that.  I went to wake the last child, only to find him still asleep, in bed with dad!  I practically had to bang pots and pans to get the three of them moving.  Laughing, I told them to man up, it was only an hour!

Well, after everyone was gone and I was making beds, I was overcome with a strong desire to crawl back into bed.  Guess what?  I did!  I slept hard, and woke up guilty.  I have no idea what came over me.  The blanket of exhaustion never really lifted, and the rainy day didn’t help.  Coincidently, I saw an article on the Huffington Post, declaring the Monday after the time change as National Napping Day.  I like it!   Made me feel better, since I got nothing done today.

Anyone else have a tough time getting motivated this morning?
