(Damn) Time Change

Pardon my French. This morning I woke up reminding myself of the time change -- fall back! Dammit, I thought to myself, while fervently hoping that Jake would sleep in until at least 7:30, because that would mean it was technically 6:30 and much more decent than 5:30. We got up at 7:20, errr 6:20. Not bad.

Seriously? The person who invented the time change did not have young children who do not understand the concept of time changes (because it is a totally unnatural thing, of course!) I woke up this morning feeling like I wanted to yell at the person who did invent it.

So Arizona and Hawaii don't bother with the time change. Why not Oregon? How do I go about starting up an initiative, gathering signatures, and getting a measure on next year's ballot to do away with the time change in Oregon? I'm only half joking...

So we got out of bed and first got on the computer to check out email, etc. Even though it was lighter outside for 6:20am *rolling my eyes*, the computer was still very bright. We keep Jake's sunglasses by the computer for this reason (this was his idea in the first place!) and put them on when we first turn on the computer. He keeps them on until his eyes have adjusted sufficiently.

Ha! We need computer glasses for those early mornings. Glug. I am so sleep deprived that today, the day I can sleep later, is an extra awesome day. Conversely, of course, is my least favorite "spring forward" day...

Oh, and this is Rebekah, not Jamie. :)

I am SO glad to be back to 'regular' time! I'm not fond of the actually time changing over, though. We should just stick to this time all year round. But, I can't complain, since River woke up at 8:30 (so, 9:30 to his body)
