Our 1 min Earth Hour

It was not that we didn't want to join with the rest of the world during the 1 hour of darkness on Saturday...we tried and we did but merely for a minute if not more ...here how the story went...

Before the actual event, my conversation with hubby:

Me: Darling, should we join in the Earth Hour fun?
Hub: Can we?
Me: Maybe we should just try and see if Ethan allows us ...
Hub: Ok

On the actual evening:
Hub: It's almost time...6 more minutes! (in the living room with Ethan watching the telly)
Me: Ok coming (shouting from the kitchen)

8.30pm on the dot:
Light off, but we thought we'll let the fans and telly on so that Ethan will not grumble so soon. So light off and Ethan was still unaware or didn't notice as his favourite Mickey Mouse Clubhouse programme was still on the telly.

Then our conversation went:
Me: Okay...let's try to switch off the tv
Hub: Ok (and hubby switched off the tv)

Silence filled the room for merely a minute before Ethan started to make noise and kept repeating "isis, isis" (his lingo in calling Mickey which till today we still don't know how he came to such name calling for Mickey Mouse...), "on, on" and started to make more noise. So our attempt to join the Earth Hour failed ;p How did yours went? I hope it went smoothly or at least much better than ours hee...
