  1. totally thought of you cuz i went out for dinner and the restaurant was a little, okay a lot, crunchy…so the lights were already out when we got there at 7ish…we dined by candlelight but it was hard to read the menus. around 9:15 they turned on some of the lights, but even then not all of them. it felt like a big shared adventure!

  2. Participated as best as I could alone with a n 8 month old and 2 yr old. Too bad this occurred during bedtime wind down. It was hard to get baby on boob in the dark, and two yr old kept saying she was scared….

  3. I missed it because I was chatting with friends that had just babysat my three children and we’d just returned from dinner out.

    I blame the delirium of eating out, sans children.

    I spent the next hour in the dark and called it good. Put us on West Coast time!

  4. Thanks for the reminder. It is 7:30 here in Northern California so I guess we’d better start preparing. :)
