    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Happy Daylight Savings??…

It’s this time of the year when you can always tell who is on top of their dates and calendars, and who just hasn’t given the calendar a second glance.  I believe that I fit into the second category here.  Why?  Well, when you aren’t aware that it is daylight savings time and we are supposed to “fall back” and wake up an hour earlier than the rest of the nation thinking the time hasn’t changed…you know you are missing something.  That was me today. 

Why, though, do we just say phrases like “spring forward” and “fall back” to remember daylight savings time?  I know that this analogy helps individuals to remember which way to set the clocks, but it really does nothing to help us remember the exact day to do it.  If this were my first time hearing of Daylight Savings and heard these analogies, I would assume that the days we were supposed to set our clocks would be the start of spring and the start of fall, right?   That would at least fit in with the saying! 

Oh well.  ONE day, I will remember to acknowledge daylight savings time on my own…without having to be reminded by an older family member or seeing the sad reality of the real time on my cell phone when I wake up the next morning.  It is going to happen!  For now, all I can say is, thank goodness we weren’t supposed to set them ahead.
