Time Passing

Last week was the four month mark on my cancer diagnosis. It’s funny how four months can be such a short time while also feeling like an eternity.

Oh my, I can’t believe it’s been four months since my diagnosis.
Oh my, I can’t believe it’s only been four months since my diagnosis.

I’m sure that a lot of this is relative to other events. Four months seems like only a sliver of time when I consider that I’ve got 5 months more of chemo. It’s also been a whirlwind though as I’ve already been through so much during this period. I don’t know, it’s just interesting to think about.

Who Says I Need To Set My Clocks Forward

Apparently last night was the all important time of year when we are supposed to Spring Ahead and set our clocks forward one hour.

I was thinking though, who is that can tell me that I should give up an hour of my life? I’m very busy and really just don’t have it to spare right now. Sure, a little bit of extra sunlight in the day is nice but nature really takes care of that quite nicely this time of year.

So I think I’ve decided not to adjust my clocks for Daylight Savings Time this year. That’s right – if Arizona and Hawaii can do it, so can I. So while the rest of the Central Time Zone moves to CDT I’ll remain on CST – or what I’m calling Central Scott Time.

Sure – it’s going to be confusing, I’m likely going to be late for everything, and I don’t think Gina is too keen on the idea but I say – what the hell. What’s the worst thing that could happen?

I think this experiment is going to be so successful that the rest of the world will come around later in the year and realize what a waste of time (literally) it is and take that hour right back again. Want to bet?
