Daylight savings time today meant that, while our first hockey game of the morning began at the cringe-worthy hour of 8:10, it felt more like a leisurely 9:10. However. Alexi was on call all weekend, which means he sleeps with his pager at the bedside. I woke up multiple times last night to the sound of it, and kept thinking, wow, the ER must be hopping tonight. Turns out, it was the pager’s low-battery alert, which chirps five times an hour. Alexi finally got up and changed the battery at approximately 3:16am. Abbott’s built in alarm woke him at what is now 5; what yesterday would have been his usual just-before-6 awakening. He came to our bed to tell us all about it.
So I’m tired. He’s tired. I lit a candle a little earlier than I usually do, late in the afternoon. I’ll wake up tomorrow and have a little more light as I make breakfast, and, I hope, a lot more energy.
I'm wishing all of us a good start to this new week.
