Old Time/New Time
I hate time changes. Jed makes fun of me because I refer to everything as old time or new time. It didn't factor into things so much before we had kids. It was just an extra hour more (yea!) or less (boo!) of sleep. But with kids I have to constantly be thinking, "oh, he's crying because even though it's 7 o'clock, that's new time. In old time it's 8 o'clock and he needs a bottle and to go to sleep." Or, "it's 4 o'clock new time, so it's 5 o'clock old time and we should be hungry for dinner." I know it's only an hour, but it totally messes up my life every six months. Same with traveling between time zones. Annoying. I think I need to move to Arizona (or isn't there somewhere near Indiana or somewhere) where the time doesn't change.
