Daylight Savings Dumbass

Imagine my surprise as I'm standing in my fuzzy blue robe on Sunday morning, thinking I had a half hour to get ready for mass after getting the kids ready, when Sophia announced that, "today is Daylight Savings Time". Huh? Mass was starting right that moment. No half hour to get ready. No half hour to get the kids loaded into the car and to get there. Gah, I hate Daylight Savings Time! Not so much the time change in the Fall, because I could always use and extra hour of sleep, and at worst I'm an hour early for something, but the time change in the Spring just bites. But Vince has reminded me that the time change in the Fall is actually the end of Daylight Savings Time, so actually the only thing I like about it is it's ending.

So besides feeling jet lagged without the actually benefit of traveling anywhere, my jaw is out of alignment. I'm not sure when this happened. I woke up feeling fine, i.e. jet lagged, but at some point today my jaw must have slipped out of it's proper alignment because my teeth aren't meeting correctly and my left jaw socket is sore. I'm not sure what to do for it other than give it time. I'm just hoping it doesn't require too much time to correct itself.

The babies refused to nap today, and instead decided to have a poop-a-thon. After an hour and fifteen minutes of thumping, chattering and just plain not going to sleep, Annamaria started yelling that she's pooped. So double poopy diaper duty for me. The joy. The past couple of days I've tried to introduce the idea of potty training. The kicker is that Francesca, the 18 month old, is more than willing to cooperate and actually pooped on the potty for me. While Annamaria, the 34 month old, sits on the potty and yells that she wants her Minnie diaper. Or "biper" as she calls it.

And I'm out of dinner ideas. So tonight, I think we're having breakfast for dinner. Which no one will complain about I'm sure. I've been wanted to try to make a homemade crumb coffee cake, and I have a recipe for one, but the topping calls for 1 cup of nuts (pecans, walnuts or almonds). But I don't want nuts in my coffeecake. Can I just leave them out? One cup seems like a lot to just leave out without putting something else in it's place. What's up with the nuts in everything? Not that I have anything against nuts, I'm not allergic or anything, but I just don't like nuts in my soft baked goods. Ruins the whole thing. No nuts in my brownies. No nuts in my cookies. I know. I'm weird.

And the perfect ending to my perfect crabby rant, I have an Ob/Gyn appointment tomorrow. And we all know how much we love those. There is a reason I haven't been since Francesca was born.

Ha, I don't like nuts in my baked goods either! Or raisins. ;)

Wow, could I feel your pain in today's post. I like to refer to poop-a-thons as "poop-a-paloozas"--we had one on Monday. YUCK! And Audrey is so not into potty training... :(

Hope your jaw feels better soon. And that you get over your jet lag.

You made me laugh so hard when I read the title of your posting. We are still not adjusting well to the time change.
