Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


Preparing for Fall Back 2016

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]


Taking my advice with time change

For many years I write a post when we Spring Forward and Fall Back and I give advice and tips on how to prepare before the change and things to do after. (Here’s last week’s post with tips to prepare to Spring Forward.) I usually follow some of my advice. But not all of it. […]


Preparing to Spring Forward

Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. So to my Arizona family […]

Getting ready to Spring Forward

Spring Forward

This post is brought to you by the free wifi from the Starbucks in Harrah’s in Reno. Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (tomorrow at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get […]


Caffeine and adrenaline

I am a regular coffee drinker. At work I usually have one cup in the morning. The days I work from home and weekends I usually have two cups. A couple of weeks ago I was really tired at work and upped my coffee intake to two cups. By Wednesday of that week I had […]


Keeping calm, simple for Monthly Challenge

I asked my readers for ideas for the November Monthly Challenge. I got a lot of great ideas and used them. I saved one idea for Go Fit Girl’s December Monthly Challenge. We’ll get to that shortly. December is a tough month for me and for many others as well. We are so busy with […]


Fall Back

Oh, time change, how I dislike you very, very, very much. (Hate is a strong word.) Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this doesn’t apply to you as much. But I think the suggestions I am going to make are great whenever you cross time zones. One of my family members once asked […]
