I don't know about all of you out there, but I think there has to be a "Sanity Savings" day, in fact I think we should institute one immediately. Of course, this would probably exclude Daylight Savings Day!
Putting the kids to bed late and having 9 am church would not be included in my Sanity Savings Day, especially when you lose an hour over night. For the first time in 5 years I had to wake Tate up. He is our early bird, but this morning I had to DRAG him out of bed and force feed oatmeal to get the kids to church on time. Shirts were un-tucked, hair disheveled, frowns and tears were in full force (this was from me, not the kids), and McCall only had time to eat once in the hour she was up - not enough for her! So church was an adventure, not one I am willing to do again any time soon.
But it was worth it to watch all the people come late to the meeting, walk in at 9:55 and have utter confusion on their faces. So I might have paid a great price to get to church on time, but was rewarded when I got to laugh at all the confused faces coming in one hour late! Plus sacrament meeting was relatively quiet and empty for our large ward.
Next year...no staying up late + no 9am church + no grumpy kids = Sanity Savings Day!
