7:20: I open my eyes and look at the alarm clock. I think, "Got to get up and get ready for church..."
7:45: I open my eyes again. "Oh no, we have to leave in one hour--we'll never make it..."
7:56: I get out of bed and walk to Mila's room. She is awake already, reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I sit on her bed.
Mila: It's 8:57, Mom.
Me: Huh? (I look at her clock. It says 8:57.)
Mila: It's Daylight Savings.
Me: Ohhhh, but you're supposed to move your clock an hour backward not forward, which makes it...6:57! Later!
6:57: I run back to my room. Ben has turned on the light and is heading towards the bathroom. I turn off the light.
Ben: What are you doing?
Me: I forgot it was Daylight Savings! We can go back to bed!
6:58: We both jump back in bed. I can hear the girls in the room next to us begin to stir, then talk, then jump up and down in their cribs. But I don't even go in there for another 10 minutes.
8:50: We arrive at church ten minutes early. Yes! It's about time Daylight Savings showed me some love.
