Don't approach it as "switching". Think of it as "adding". Then, it won't seem silly.
To begin your transition, play music that your ear absolutely knows. Pick pieces that the NEW fingerings will fall in just an easy a key for your hands as the original (ie: something that is written in F major, for instance.) Get used to looking at the music and having the correct sound come out but with your hands doing "funny" things. After a period of weeks, your hands won't feel so "funny", and you can move on to more challenging music.
Does your Mama know that you are up this late on a school night? Tell her that I said to take the computer out of your bedroom and put it in the den.
