Itís still a week until what should have been the start of Daylight Saving Time, and I donít know if Iíll be ready for it even then. Weíve already been on it for two weeks, and Iím not doing very well with it. My days and nights have gone totally upside down, so that I find myself wide awake in the middle of the night and collapsing with fatigue in the middle of the afternoon. I canít remember another time change thatís hit me this hard (and thatís saying something).
One thing I know I need is exercise, and the longer days are helping with that. Iíve been getting out in the yard in the afternoon and working as hard as my decrepit old body will allow, and I have to say that as bad as it makes me feel, it makes me feel good, too. I guess I think itís good to feel tired for a good reason, and doing some physical work is a better reason to be tired than the fact that I wandered the halls all zombie-like last night.
