Still Complaining about Daylight Savings

daylight_savings_pickuplines-14I am finally starting to feel a little better after a few days of rest. I will be extending this rest period out with a trip to the Oregon Coast this weekend and am very excited about it. We will be celebrating our Birthdays with a weekend getaway. Woo Hoo.

This is where the transformation of card and gift giving comes in handy. We both decided that we don’t want to buy each other gifts on birthdays and elected to turn that money into an exciting experience instead. I am sure there will be pictures to come and I promise to share. 🙂

Yesterday I slept pretty late and didn’t have the time or energy to even write a post. My energy seemed to have come back yesterday afternoon and I am feeling pretty darn good right now. I have noticed that my sleeping pattern has started to change slightly where I am having a tougher time falling asleep. I believe that my body is still in line with the time before the daylight savings change. At one point in my life it was easy to make this transition, but lately it gets more difficult each time we change time. And of course the all nighter at the hospital didn’t help.

Why is it that we think that we have to change the things in nature that are already perfect. The time, our food, the landscape? What took evolution millions of years to perfect we humans think that we need to manipulate these things into our little boxes of life. The opposite should be in place where we manipulate our lives to fit those things of the world around us.

It is very true that by utilizing the mineral resources available to create things that provide shelter, clean water and better ways of preserving food has helped create great societies where people are living much better lives. But the truth is that we must be more responsible about going about doing these things. All natural resources have a limit which by it’s very definition make them sacred. Humans want to possess everything they can get their hands on and this is where one day we will reach a critical mass and find ourselves declaring war on those in possession of the resources which are being hoarded and distributed at great cost.
Blood Sugar- 101, Weight 195.1

I have put on more pounds over the last few days and believe that stress has had a great influence on this recent weight gain. I haven’t changed my diet. I should see this drop over the next week or so.
