Daylight Savings: A Survival Guide

This week on, I wrote about "springing" forward backward.

Here are 6 things that worked for us this week:

1. Spring forward even MORE 

After two terrible mornings, one of which I literally fell asleep trying to wake Revi and Bo, (perhaps that has something to do with the fact that I was trying to wake them while under Bo's covers with my eyes closed) I decided to take matters into my own (hour) hands and pushed every clock in the house forward by 11 minutes. (Even numbers make me feel uncomfortable. 7:00 am alarm? Gross. 7:02, you guys. 7:02.)

Anyway, all of our clocks are fast. So if you want to know what time it is, please don't ask me... (Ever since I pushed the clocks up 11 minutes, we have been ON TIME EVERYWHERE. SERIOUSLY. THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE. IT IS LIFE CHANGING. GO AHEAD! CONTROL APPLE P. I'LL WAIT.)

2. Everyone must sleep in their clothes ...

I have gotten shit for this in the past but I'm about to get all Bret Easton Ellis on that action because I couldn't care less than zero. Because having kids wear their clothes to bed IS MY LIFELINE. And, yes. I am sure that there are people out there who can get four kids dressed, fed and out the door every. single. morning with time to spare, but that is not the case for this girl.

Three out of three of my daughters must deliberate on their clothes du jour and that takes anywhere from three seconds to, well, we've had days where I've had to buckle Bo into her carseat in nothing but sneakers and Elsa undies, only to dress her later, in the backseat of the car. Not ideal. But I have learned not to negotiate with threerorists. Not at 8:01 am, anyway.

3. ... Including me. 

Now that I work at home with little to no adult interaction, I don't even bother to wear anything that isn't workout clothes on most days. Which is fine because Hal and I are doing Radius bootcamp every night together and it's seriously the worst/the best. (NOTHING SAYS ROMANCE LIKE A COUPLE OF OLDIES DOING SQUATS TOGETHER IN THE LIVING ROOM AT 10PM.)

Also? And I know you're not supposed to exercise before bed but MAN, does it put my ass to sleep. No insomnia for this girl. My 1:00am bedtime is totally midnight, now...

In the meantime, this is us:
