Why I Love "Fall Back"

Because with that precious extra hour, we:
  • played at the park. Really, for some reason it takes creating an hour that wasn't there before to discover the time on a Sunday to do that.
  • had this conversation. Hubby, to kids: What do you want for breakfast? Daughter: Oh, a giant bowl of ice-cream, with chocolate sauce. Son: And this time, dad, we mean "literally."
  • made and ate pancakes instead.


  1. "Fallback" time is such a gift. I managed to do two things at once: I graded until 11 p.m. and then wandered around the house resetting all the clocks. And then, ta-da, I was in bed by 10:30 p.m. Just like magic! Once you reset the clocks, it's like having an hour of do-over!

  2. Allison, I agree with the "do over" mentality. In fact, couldn't we just "fall back" an hour every day, and cycle backward in a leisurely fashion?
