    While i like having more daylight time in the evenings, the whole thing messes my body clock up for a week or two.

    And my husband left again this morning, so he had to get up at 5 which was really 4 on my internal clock and I'm really feeling it this morning now.

    And I can feel your pain Duxxy. I remember when my daughter was small it always messed up her bed and nap times and took forever to adapt too. Plus she always wanted to know why she had to go to bed when it was still light outside.

    The dogs get messed up too. They pretty much know when morning outside time is and so getting them adjusted isn't always easy either.

    It doesn't affect me at all. I don't know why, because I love to sleep. I really hate the fact that I lose an hour of sleep, but it doesn't seem to bother me at all.

    As we were leaving church on Sunday, in came a woman who obviously forgot to change her clocks and was somewhat irritated that we were all leaving!!

    The time change and forth doesn't bother me at all. Love the extra hour of daylight in the spring evenings, love the extra hour of sleep on one long autumn weekend.

    Daylight Saving Time (DST) is a non-issue with me. At my longitude, mid-summer sunrise would be at 5 AM without DST--who can take advantage of THAT? It takes me about 5 minutes to change my clocks. I have two clocks that self-correct but were programmed before the most recent legislative changes to DST, so I have the mental excercise of adding one hour to their displays--I think that I can handle it until they catch up.

    Usually DST only bothers me the first day, when I have to work sunday night. This time I'm suffering, though, as I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and not only lost sleep yesterday but am trying to stay up all day today so as to be somewhat on track for day living starting tomorrow; then again I'm going to the other side of the US and thus 3 hours backward--wait, now I'm really confused. Hurryup bedtime!

    I love Daylight Savings time. My body needs all the exercise it can get. Just having sunshine longer entices me to keep working and at least moving around.

    When was the old daylight savings time? Was it the second week of April or so?
