Daylight Savings Weekend

FB_IMG_1553553319733And it's Monday again. The US switched to Daylight Savings Time this weekend so we got our extra hour of sleep. Was definitely needed after coming back from California. It felt like a very long week. Especially last Monday when we headed straight to work from the airport (and only less than 2 hours of sleep on the plane) But even though I appreciate the extra hour of sleep with Daylight Savings the whole thing still aggravates me every time. It messes with your inner clock and schedule. I do like that (at least briefly) it's a little lighter again in the morning but of course tonight by the time I leave work it will be pitch black dark. It's always such an abrupt change. Ugh. 

So yeah, managed to get through the week even though the jetlag (or maybe just the fact of not sleeping much Sunday into Monday) affected me quite a bit this time around. But oh well, a new week ahead. We have a new person starting at work who I will be mentoring. I think that's the 5th person I am mentoring. Well I am coming up on 3 years at my current job (Nov 7) Crazy how time flies. So it will be a busy week ahead. 

The weekend was nice and relaxed. It was pretty cool/cold but sunny all weekend. This morning it was only 28F (-2C) when I woke up. The high is going to be 53F (11C) The 10 day forecast shows snow showers and frigid temps. Ugh. I guess we have officially entered that season now with crossing into November. Not really looking forward to another long winter. Really not my favorite time of the year but what can you do? 

So yeah, the weekend was quiet. Saturday we went to the movies and saw the new Maleficent movie and then had lunch in Oxford at 121. On Sunday we just slept in and then had lunch in Westport. And afterwards met up with our friends John and Jana for a bit before heading home to catch up on more recorded TV.
