You know, this time change thing from Saturday to Sunday wasn’t too bad!!
I’m actually kind of THANKFUL for the extra sleep and the shifting of the clock.
Miriam has gotten into some bad habits in her sleep schedule – she, like me, has become such a NIGHT OWL. She goes to bed pretty late for a little girl and tends to sleep in somewhat late in the mornings (not good on those rare occasions when we actually need to get up & get going). Her naps are erratic and often too late in the day to fix the too late bed time.
Moving the clock back over the weekend put her RIGHT ON SCHEDULE at least for Saturday night!! She went down pretty early (in the new adjusted time) – woke up once to fuss – and then slept on throught until 7:30 a.m., which is a reasonable time to get up.
THEN as a bonus for me, she took a good nap after church – from 12:30 until 2:45.
NOW, I hope I don’t mess up this nice schedule by letting her sleep in late again because I enjoy the quietness of my mornings … or I sometimes fall back to sleep on the couch myself while I am doing my early morning reading/coffee drinking.
The one thing I do NOT like about this time change is HOW DARK it is so EARLY!! Since 5:30 p.m. I’ve felt like it was bedtime because it was SO dark out!!
I put soft flannel sheets on my bed today – topped with the featherbeds (down comforters) that I inherited from my Oma. Now I can’t wait to get in … and I hope I can force myself to get out in the morning!
Thankfully, we have NO WHERE to go.
