Daylight Savings

Life has become rather unusual at our house since Daylight Savings. The little ones who used to have to be drug from their beds at 8:15 am get up at 6:30 now. Everyone is snuggled into bed and even I'm nearly asleep by 8:40 pm. It is actually very nice.

Our waking and sleeping now match the daylight! #1 and I don't have to squint through our screen door in the dark at 6:45 every morning trying to figure out "are those the bus lights?" coming down the street!

The only drawback is the darkness-induced coma I seem to find myself in at 6pm every night....smack in the middle of dinner, clean-up, helping with homework and conducting family devotions! Last night, I looked at the clock thinking it has got to be after 8pm and it was only 6:15!

I'm not sure I remember ever being so affected by it! I'm hoping I can stay awake through #2's soccer practice tomorrow night!

I am so there with you! Getting myself up to bed by 10 p.m. no longer feels like it's way too early. I'm toast by 9:45! And it was so nice to wake up these last couple mornings to daylight. Well, not really daylight this a.m. - gray hovering clouds and rain, but not pitch black!
