Soren Standard Time

By Richie Ann Ashcraft
For the last eight months I've been running myself ragged on Soren Standard Time. SST is almost exactly half an hour later than Mountain Time. Since everyone around me operates under MT I'm constantly beginning every conversation with "Sorry I'm late," as I inspect my disheveled self for undiscovered stains leftover from his morning cereal. It's not like I had a perfect track record of timeliness prior to the kid but I could have been counted on. Now I'm a total flake. Although it doesn't seem like it at the moment, I really do try to be aware of the big hand. I'm a watch-checker so being late ALL the time really causes me some undue stress. I am LOVING daylight savings time for the first time ever. Soren was begging to go to bed last night at 6:30 p.m. well before his appointed 8 p.m. bedtime. And this morning, he was up at 6:30 a.m. leaving me plenty of time to feed him cereal and take some time to put myself together which is all to rare anymore. I know it won't last but that extra hour is a mommy's best friend! In a rough transition-Don't forget to take and send pics of the kids to us for the Haute Mama's Halloween Contest. Winners recieve tickets to the Cinema At The Avalon (sorry babysitter not included). Send pics to Robin Dearing to enter and voting will take place next week! Happy Halloween!
