Much too dark too early

Do you realize we're turning our clocks back later this year? Like in November? Oy and it's really dark out in the morning! Which tells me I just need to be getting up later right? Not possible when I need to get the dd to school at 7:40 in the morning, ugh. Here's the problem with that and it took me until this morning to figure out what the hell the problem was, ya'll are going to find this funny too.

I wash my face ever morning and night and I moisturize. Now before you think I'm one of those primping kinda gals don't even go there, I only wear make up and blow dry hair for 3 occasions: weddings, funerals, and graduations. Thank God I try my best to avoid all 3 at all costs. Most of the time I only go to my own of all 3 and hopefully I'll only go to that middle one of mine once and I'll be in ashes for that one so it'll be an easy primp right? So anyway the face washings, I wash and then moisturize with an eye cream and either a daily moisturizer with spf 15 or a night cream in the evening. The eye cream is the same for morning and evening. Well for the past few mornings I've been applying my night cream. In the morning. And then looking down and going, WTF? Why did I just put on night cream? Totally different jars, like completely. One is a pump and the other is a jar. Really hard to confuse.

This morning I've figured it out. It's friggin dark outside. Like hella dark. I'm awake and all, it's after my shower so I'm up but damn it all if it's not pitch black still outside and cold which my body is sooo not used to. I grew up in So Cal. Land of moderate slow change of temperatures and seasons. Well no real change of seasons really. Out here it goes from HOT to COLD. Friggin A man WTF? Moderation anyone? Nope, not here, this is the midwest. Or something, I dunno. Texas man I don't get it. We're starting our 3rd year here and you'd think I'd be getting used to it but it's like a slap in the face. A shocking reminder every time it happens. And then I think "Duh, Texas, not So Cal". It'll still be in the 80's during the day though, just 50 in the evenings and the mornings. It amazes me that plant life still survives in this weather. Shows a great deal of tenacity because if I had to live outside I'd just roll over and die. I just do not have that type of tenacity. It's one of the many reasons the dh does not bother asking me if I want to go camping. Ha! Yeah, no.

only positive I can think of is that it will be nice and dark for the trick-o-treaters later this month. i am so not a morning person so the darkness makes it even harder to wake up. I hear you on the makeup-I have better things to spend time and money on!

I get that you're sort of new round these hee-err pah-rrrts, but yeah, Texas is not the midwest. heheh. Have you had the pleasure of using the AC and the heater in the same day yet? That's always a fun one!

I know what you mean. I have to be at work at 7am and lately it feels like it is still the middle of the night driving in. I have started taking the longer route since it is more lit than the country roads I normally take to work. I love having more daylight in the evenings but HATE the darkness in the morning. And it is a very very dark black.

I am the same way on the makeup except that I NEVER put in on, besides base which I wear every day.

Ac and heat in the same day? I've been tempted but no, not yet. The day will come though I am sure of it. It wasn't that bad today, it was worse yesterday. They hubby was off today so I got up 30 minutes later which makes just a little bit of difference in temp, jut a bit. And I was able to blow dry the wet hair!
