To "celebrate" the occasion this morning, I slept in an extra hour.

Haha...me too... even though I'm trying hard not to do that.
On a side note, I'm feeling like I got hit by a truck today, and somebody scrambled my brains. pale   All I seem to be capable of doing is sitting and watching C-SPAN, and wondering what the heck they're talking about.

What worries me is that Wednesday is our garbage collection day and we have to have our bins out between 5am earliest and 7am latest.  I will have a problem waking up at the right time.

A couple of weeks ago I managed to get it out as the truck was approaching my driveway. A couple of times I missed it, and several times I have woken up far too early and stayed up until 5am then returned to bed and then slept too late and felt out of sorts for the rest of the day.

For twenty years I was spoiled as our collection day and time was Friday 12 noon which I easily managed winter and summer.

I solve the trash-day problem by rolling out the bins the previous evening.

I love Daylight savings time and seriously wish that 'standard time would be done away with.  It is the switching that bothers me.  I love DST in the winter because there is daylight after school and work.  Standard time in the winter means sunrise as I leave in the morning and sunset before I get home. Bleh.  The one time they did DST in the winter I was in grade school and we were in heaven because we had an hour of daylight play time after school.  The stars were out when we went to school in the morning but that was only one side of the day in the dark.

We have a bylaw with a $50 fine if we get caught.  Also the garbage bins are fastened with clips and we would still have to get up early in the morning to un-clip them, otherwise the garbage trucks could not unload them.  It is all done while the driver sits in his cab.  After the first few weeks of the new way of doing things, the driver was within his rights to just leave the garbage can un-emptied.

The can itself has to face the road; make sure it is not too far back from the road, make sure there is nothing on either side of it or overhanging it.

A couple of weeks ago snow had blown on top of my garbage can and it could not be opened and I did not have time to unfreeze it with warm water and dry it before became re-frozen.

The joys of progress.
