Hour of our discontent

Tonight is going to be veeeery interesting. And not just because of the latest round in my late-night battle with Dad. Mainly, it's because of the switch to Eastern Standard Time, and turning the clocks back an hour. Until this year, Mom and Dad were huge fans of this night, because they got an extra hour of sleep. But now that I'm on the scene, the time change is fraught with peril. For the past month or two, I've been getting up pretty consistently at 6:30 a.m. But move that time an hour back, and you're talking about a 5:30 a.m. wakeup time!

My parents tried to ease me into the time change by putting me down an hour later last night, but even with that switch — and my losing an hour's sleep last night during my 2 a.m. crying fit — I was up at my usual 6:30 a.m. time.

In other news, my Dad has pulled weekend duty again, so it's pretty much just me and Mom this weekend. So we had a girls day out to the mall with Babcia. I have a feeling that the three of us will be going shopping together alot!

So how will things turn out tonight? Tune in tomorrow....
