i dont like day light savings time

the time on the watch says 500am
two days ago that watch would have read 400am
would it be 600am

i always get confused
spring forward
fall back
so if you spring forward would it read 600am or would it be 400am
so if you fall back would it be 600am or would it be 400am

see what i mean
its so dang confusing

i have to write down on a piece of paper
spring forward
so that would be 600am
but would it really be like 400am was

so what i go by are
the birds that come achirping and landing on the railing on our patio
that dont have to worry about day light savings or dst time
they just do it old school
nature sends them triggers as to when to get up and start the day

the sun peaks over the distant trees and condos across the way each morning
it just happens
there is no time thats dictated to the sun
man doesnt have that kind of control over the sun yet
im sure they will try though

as it peaks over the walls and trees you can gradually see the suns shadow move towards our condo
it climbs up the condo wall and bam
it bursts into our living room dining room of our condo
like a bright heating lamb
when im sitting there when that happens i always think thats what a lizard feels like in the morning sun

so each morning i try to time my last cup of coffee for that exact time the sun peeks into our condo
its one of the highlights of the morning
to sit there and feel the warmth on my face and body and look out over our condos landscaping to watch the birds and lizards and bunnies and squirrels start their day

but you see i have to know what the real time is since i have to time my computer reading my blog writing my cups of coffee
so that it all works out so that im pouring that last cup of java and sitting down just as the sun bursts into the room

so i have to start at the right time
so is that 300am or is it 500am
its not 400am anymore
do i spring things forward or do i fall them back

can you see how confusing this is

yesterday i watched mr hudson and i noticed he never looked at the clock or the watch or the iphone to see what time it was
it just got sleepy at nap time and went to sleep
the same was for his evening meal and for his bedtime
it all did seem to be later than usual
well when i looked at the clock
did it spring forward or fall back

i dont know so i wish they whoever they are would fix all this

i finally figured out that the old school time was the time we do in the fall
the new daylight savings time is what we do in the spring

so are we the same as in phoenix now or are we an hour apart
it seems we match up with them a few months out of the year
i never know when we fly through phoenix what time it is there

i say lets just leave it alone and quit changing it

i personally like more sunshine earlier in the morning since im a morning person
so thats old school time
is it day light savings time
i think its old school time

this morning i feel like i sprang back and fell forward
