Thriving in the Dark


I can remember being in school and hating the time change in the fall. It really put a damper on my already limited playtime.

Now, however, as a mom to two non-school aged kids, I thrive.

Something about that earlier sunset. I make dinner on time, I get the kids to bed on time, I get more done in the evenings, I go to sleep earlier. It's great!

This coming from someone who loves warm weather and sunshine. Oh, how I already miss Summer...

Hopefully I can continue to concentrate on the good that comes with the dark evenings.

Better schedule, more efficient, more time to myself...

I can totally do winter this year.

I miss the summer too and I do seem to settle in earlier when it gets darker faster.

I agree about going to bed earlier. I can relate to that in the winter.

I love this time of year too!!!!!!! Love when it gets dark earlier!

Tiffany said...

What a positive attitude! Actually I've been going to bed earlier myself since the time change...maybe it's related??

It still comes as a shock to me how early it gets dark. I'll have to try to borrow your attitude and look at the positive.

I cannot get myself together since the time changed. I'm the exact opposite. It'll be 5:30 in the evening and will feel like 8:30. LOL
