I think the day during which we “gain” an hour is appropriate to express my thanks for number one vice: caffeine. At the moment it most often takes the form of instant coffee with a generous helping of heavy cream. A kitchen water cooler with a boiling tap makes coffee (and tea) very convenient, and for that I am also thankful.
Now that my kids’ sleep schedule has gone to hell and I can look forward to waking at who knows when (this morning it was 5am to put M back down and even then she was up for good at 6), I may be evermore thankful for my cup of wake-up. And my newly regularized afternoon pick-me-up. Because the nights that go past 8pm are going to be feeling that much later.
