With Any Luck

I don’t like change, never have and probably never will. That being said, my life is in a constant state of change and no matter how hard I try, it just keeps changing.

I do try to resist, but it is like being caught in a strong current, no matter how much you want to resist, it is far easier to let it take you. The problem of course is that if you aren’t careful there is a very good chance you will die. Do I think that change is going to kill me? Yeah, I guess I do.

I am in the middle of a change between summer and winter right now. I was happy with cooler weather during the day and it being downright cold at night. That has changed this afternoon with the advent of snow. Big, fluffy fakes of it are slowly drifting down from the sky, covering the ground and whatever candies the kids might have dropped last night. Just another reason to hate change, no free, found candy.

Tonight we have to change the clocks back an hour. I think it is back. “Spring forward and Fall Back” So let me see, I go to bed at 12:05 AM on November 2nd which is really 11:05 PM November 1st. I could be wrong, but isn’t that losing a day? Instead of getting to sleep in to 8:00 AM I am really getting up at 7:00 AM. I don’t want to get up early on Sunday. I don’t even know why we do this time dance twice a year. It is like my buddies wife that sets the clock in her car ahead 20 minutes so that she will be on time for appointments. She knows the clock is 20 minutes fast, so how does that even work? Canada does the same thing on a country wide scale, it is nuckin’ futs!

It is about 3:30 PM and I’m going to start trying to remember how I change the settings on all of my clocks. With any luck, I should be done shortly after midnight. With any luck…
