Tag Archives: Daylight Savings Time

The weekend I expected.

I wanted to get some of the interviews started and out the door. I accomplished that much. I have a couple back that I can schedule, but since this week is already scheduled there is time to get to them. I have more to work on so I can keep the line moving.

We managed a moderate date night, but now I wish we hadn’t. There was an awesome cream stout involved though, and it was worth it.

The dogs got me up early, made even worse with the change to Daylight Savings time. We had a late breakfast, and a late lunch, on the new time schedule. Followed by an early dinner, and I feel bloated. I need to go to bed on the new time, but may need to let my stomach settle first.

I covered the bills this afternoon, but that’s about all. We have enough money for gasoline and beans for the nest two weeks if everything works out. How often does it actually work out around here? Kind of wish we’d skipped out on date night now. Except for that one beer.

This seems to be the new normal for us.

There really isn’t a lot of other news. I wrote interview stuff most of the weekend. It is my short weekend, so that will have to do. Back to the grind tomorrow, and 4:00 is going to come really early for a couple of days.

Hope those of you who deal with the time change adjust quickly. I usually do, and I appreciate the extra daylight once I get off work.

A small list, with lots of hours ahead

My flex schedule leaves me with a two day weekend. I won’t get a flex day again until next Friday. This is the worst part of the schedule, and the 10 hour days kind of suck at this point. Then I’ll get a couple of three day weekends. To make the suckage worse, North America changes to Daylight Savings Time this weekend. That means I get to wake up an hour earlier for the next seven months or so.

The adjustment isn’t that hard, and I kind of like getting that extra hour of daylight when I get home. I’m also not looking for sympathy. I started with that to give you the idea that my available time is limited this weekend.

I have to get my truck serviced tomorrow afternoon. That blows a small hole in plans too, but they have a nice business center and I might be able to do some projects while I wait. We also want to squeeze date night in at some point.

Fewer plans are the way to go on weekends like this. I only have one, and anything else is gravy. It all involves blogging.

I have two guest posts I agreed to host next week, and I need to assemble and schedule those. I also have a habit of sending out an advance link, but that only takes an extra minute or two.

There are two or three folks who have returned the questionnaire for Lisa Burton Radio. I need to work up as many of those shticks as possible this weekend. If I can do that, and get them sent back, I’ll consider this weekend a success.

That’s it. Might not sound like much, but it does take some time and a bit of creative energy.

Should I get lucky, I might take a glance at my work-in-progress. It might not involve any more than moving the plants I’ve already made around, oh and maybe changing a character’s name. I don’t like my villain’s name and may try again. That will mean a long search to make sure I fix it everywhere.

For the rest of this evening, I’m enjoying the company of my old friend George Dickel.
