Just another post about the differences overseas. We will change – spring forward I mean – time in a few weeks. Until that time, I will enjoy the small change in difference when texting my friends or family back home. We are now only five hours ahead of the east coast. I think we are past the time of daylight savings really needing to be used and I wish we didn’t have to change time twice a year.
The time difference in general has messed up how I keep in touch with people. I went from talking to my Dad almost daily to hardly talking at all. It’s up to me to make the phone call now and not only do I have to check the time, I hate to interrupt anyone. I just this week decided that I’ve had enough worrying about interruptions and I am going to make more calls. I miss hearing people’s voices. I miss talking to someone while I do the dishes or go for a walk. Yes everyone is busy, but that won’t change so why dwell on it or feel bad. If someone can’t talk they’ll tell me.
I only wish our time change happened at the same as the US because we could have had the kids holiday to get used to it.
