This is the weekend we change the clocks. Turn your clocks BACK an hour when you go to bed Saturday night or at 2am Sunday. You might think I would be happy about this since we gain an hour of sleep but I'm really not. Monday afternoon the sun will go down around 4:30pm. I'm not a fan of that.

How many clocks do you have to change? Technology has made life a bit easier for us with our Smart phones and the cable box doing it automatically, but let's see what we have to set:

  • The clock on the oven/range.
  • The clock on the Keurig.
  • The microwave.
  • The wall clocks in the kitchen, living room and dining room.
  • The bedroom alarm clocks.
  • The CAR!
  • My watch, my wife's watch and the kids watches! Where are the instructions?

Here's hoping you don't have too many to change and a reminder from the Fire Dept: they remind you to change the batteries in your smoke detector when you change your clocks. Almost 65% of all deaths caused by fire could have been prevented if there was a working smoke alarm.
