I survived Daylight Savings Time 2017

I kind of want to make a t-shirt that says “I survived Daylight Savings Time 2017”. Barely. I thought about making a mug that says “Daylight Savings Time is from the Devil” but that seemed too long to fit on a mug and probably not the best way to start my day.

I am not going to do a play-by-play of how rough this adjustment has been for me, because if you have kids, you don’t need it spelled out. Let’s just say, I have been super productive between 5 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. this week and every mom has been early to drop off at my son’s VPK. You know, because we’ve all been awake for several hours just hanging around waiting to go. Instead, I’m going to tell you a few positives of Daylight Savings Time 2017:

  • My husband has yet not left for work when the kids get up in the morning
  • I set up all the logistics for my son’s 5th birthday (you know, basically)
  • I painted
  • I wrote this blog
  • I made my bed
  • My kids have all been in bed and asleep by 7:45 p.m. instead of 8:30 p.m.

About the art

This is a piece I finished this week. In fact, I finished it this morning at 7 a.m. The fact that my brain is able to function at 7 a.m. will tell you how long I’ve been awake. I love Christmas and painting Christmas vignettes. This was actually draft two of this dress. The first was based on a dress by Carolina Herrera but it kind of looked like Ursula. So I redesigned it for my skill set and voila – feathers!

Speaking of coffee mugs, I’ve added a few to my Etsy shop. You know, in case you like mugs as much as I do.
