...and everything else
I don't do well with the time change. I mean I love the light lingering longer with each passing day and I don't even mind waking up to the darkness-(nothing a little coffee can't fix) but man, the older I get the longer it takes me to sync into the daylight changes. I'm pretty sure once my life doesn't revolve around an alarm clock 5 days a week, I'll be able to embrace springing forward better...
...that's my theory anyway!
There was one day last week that a bit of melancholy snuck up on me. I blame a lack of sleep. All those lost Zzzzzs just caught up with me. That day, the weight of the world on my shoulders just buckled my knees (nothing that a little cry on the Mr's shoulders can't fix).
In my mind, I've had this impending "empty nester" transition all figured out and was totally handling it! But the fact of the matter is, reality is setting in as Austin's December graduation date is inching ever closer. Shortly after, he'll be setting off for a career in the Navy. He just started talking to his recruiter and has taken the ASVAB (an aptitude test to determine qualification for enlistment).
Things just got real-er!
I won't bore you with the details about the other stuff that piled heavy on my shoulders that one day -(nothing that a good night's sleep didn't fix.)
It's finally the weekend and I am caught up on some much needed sleep, I cleaned the house and I'm ready for the upcoming week. My last load of laundry is in the dryer-all of which tends to shrink my troubles.
What do these photos of the handsome peacocks have to do with any of this?
I just wanted to share more of my visit from the L.A. Arboretum-did you miss the first post?
You can read about it HERE
So tell me friend, does the time change bother you? How do you get over that hump?
I do hope you'll share.
Happy (longer days) snapping!
