I don’t know about you guys, but this time change is still kicking my tail!! Is this a sign of my aging, that I can’t shake the loss of one measly hour of sleep?!? There’s just no bouncing back for me anymore. Kind of like a hangover…when I do manage to stay out late enough to even acquire one, it stays with me for 3 days!

But as much fun as sharing a single room with two beds among four people is, it’s so great to get back home!
So how was your weekend? Was it as food-packed as mine?!?! And is anyone else still dragging from last weekend’s time change (except you
