I want to know who invented Daylight Savings Time

so that I can punch them for the havoc they wreak on my children and my body. Then we finally get adjusted and it is time to mess it up again. We live in a 24-hour society--we aren't saving a thing.

Instead of waking up at 6:30, the kids are now up at 5:30. By 10:00 this morning, I had cleaned the house, unpacked from our trip, fed them breakfast and a snack, loaded the fourth load of laundry and was ready for bed.

It was the ingenious idea of Ben Franklin. Sadly you are going to have to wait a long time to punch him. I agree though! My 10 month old now has no idea when to sleep and loves waking up early.

I was just thinking about how we can stop the madness. Who is in charge of this stupid time change?
Arizona chooses not to change their clocks. WASHINGTON please stand up!
I need to check into this.
And my stomache wants lunch an hour earlier than it used to and I am starving! My tummy knows when it is REALLY noon! Sheesh.

Ah, you poor Austonians... poor Texans... poor everyone but Arizonans (and a small section of Indiana)... forced to bow down to the clock-changers... those evil fiends! I'd suggest you all move to Arizona, but we're getting a little crowded, so perhaps a march on DC is more appropriate.
