Sprung Forward

We went to a party last night (happy birthday Ela!) and had a good time. We talked to many different people about a wide variety of subjects, including Carnaval in Rio, the names of NPR commentators and school architecture. But we came home early because Daylight Savings Time was going to rob us of an hour of sleep and we didn't want to wake up too tired this morning.

According to scientists, losing an hour in the spring is more difficult on our bodies than gaining an hour in the fall.  This does not shock me at all.  Isn't it always easier to gain something than to lose it?  Studies have also shown that there are more traffic accidents the Monday morning after the switch is made.

So be careful out there.
