    AHA, so I can blame DST on my IVF failing all those times, causing miscarriage after miscarriage. Yay me. Also too, wasn’t this whole thing started for farmers that needed the kidlets to be out of school or some such to do farm work. We don’t have that anymore or at least right now we don’t.

    Now that I am in full retirement time is really something I don’t worry with anymore. I go to bed when I feel like it, get up when the notion strikes me, and eat when I get hungry.

Other than that, it always five o’clock somewhere, 🙂
