I Need A Nap

This happens every year.  Autumn comes, the weather gets colder and the sun goes down earlier.  All those things can be dealt with, no problem.  But then . . . literally overnight . . . the end of Daylight Savings Time.  Why is it that we only set our clocks back one hour but the sun seems to be setting three hours earlier?

My brain and my body struggle to make this adjustment for at least two weeks.  It's now pitch black before 6pm and it's all I can do to keep my eyes open.  And the really sad part is, I can literally crawl into bed shortly after 6:00 and sleep through the night, and STILL not want to get out of bed before 9:00 the next morning!  

Thanks for listening, going to lay (lie?) down now...
