Daylight Savings was Sunday

But we didn't find out until Monday night. Yep, we went two whole days not knowing the time had changed. I'm thinking we should start watching the local news every now and then.

Ibis came home from class last night upset because I'd made him leave an hour early. More like shoved him out the door, but whatever. He was supposed to meet with the Canadian woman at 4pm to go over the lessson plans and that's when he found out. I was oblivious for another five hours. This has never happened to me before and I'm still a little off-kilter.

(She ended up not teaching the class and they said it was fine, they had someone else who could do it. Tormenting me was just a fun pasttime.)

In other news, we both got sick at 5am this morning. I feel fine now so whatever it was went right through me, but I was having flashbacks to last month when I had a really nasty virus that ended with an evil injection. The first time I got sick, we'd eaten at our favorite fonda at the mercado the day before and while I thought too much time passed for that to be the cause, we haven't gone back. Until yesterday. Hmm... another lesson learned?

Our time change isn't until Sunday, Nov. 4th at 2am. Weird that your's is a week earlier than ours.

The US passed a bill this past year that altered daylight savings by several weeks on each end. Supposedly to save money for companies with the extra light, something like that. The rest of the world stayed the same as far as I know.

I've only had one real problem since I've been here, so I think I'm pretty much adjusted. I think the other day was a fluke - it may have also been the popcorn we had before bed. :)
