124 days until we can continue living after 5:00 at night.

One of my least favorite things is the end of daylight savings time.  Not only do I not get the extra hour of sleep (GMac is now yelling "MAMA OW" (out) at 5:30 a.m.), but more importantly I lose all that valuable post-dinner daylight.  The time when I shoo the kids outside or we go on walks or we get donuts (breaking news! Donut World now accepts credit cards!) or we don't have to close the blinds early because we aren't worried about people walking buy watching us sit on our butts while we watch t.v.

Really, the GMac waking up earlier isn't a big deal.

I took GMac to the store with me in the dark of the night on Sunday to stock up on Election Day essentials. No lie, as I'm walking through the store I thought 1) "People are totally going to judge me for having my one year old out at such a late hour" and 2) "Why is this place so crowded so late in the evening?"

You guys, it was 6:30 in the evening! People where probably buying stuff to make for dinner that same night.

We typically eat around 5:30 because GMac's gotta eat, but I'm think of pushing that back further to allow us to be outside more, but even then eventually the sun will set at 5:00 p.m. (I think). What are we supposed to do after dinner every night? (It would probably be easier if we had a larger house and didn't feel like we were always tripping over another person to get somewhere.)

Maybe I need to make more of an effort to wake up with the sun.

I totally couldn't live in Alaska.
