I showed up to work on Monday and wondered where everyone was. Meaning that I had managed to spend all of Sunday un-clued-in to the time change. That's how I always remember that with the "fall back" you will be early if you forget, but in the spring you'll miss your plane/train/meeting if you forget.
Audrey is an early riser as it is, and the fall time change means that she's getting up at 5:00-5:30 for what seems like months. It takes her FOREVER to adjust to it. I seem to remember in past years being well into December and still attributing her surliness to the time change. Why is it that in the spring I'm never treated to 6 weeks of sleeping-in when we "spring forward"?
This is the 912,856th way that my life has changed since having Audrey. I used to love getting the extra hour of sleep in the fall and hate losing an hour in the spring. Like so many other things in my life, this has now been turned upside down. But as wake-up calls go, she much cuter than an alarm clock....even at 5:00am.
