  • I ENJY THE EXTRA DAYLIGHT THIS TIME OF YEAR AS THE WEATHER WARMS AND WE GET OUT AND WALK AFTER DINNER. IN THE FALL WHEN THE TIME CHANGES WHO REALLY CARES IT IS ALREADY DARK SO EARLY ANYWAY. - 3/14/2010 3:58:06 AM
  • I hate losing my sleep and am lucky we are on spring break for two weeks right now... I also love the outcome with longer days, so I guess I need to bite the bullet and get over my hour of sleep. The big picture is that this is a strong signal of the end of a very cold and very snowy, long and dreary winter. Hallelujah!! We will be outdoors again, welcome sunshine, Vitamin D and fresh air!! - 3/14/2010 3:24:39 AM

    The government needs to keep their nose out of changing the time. There are other issues that are more important. One's body just gets used to one time and then it's time to change again....

    How I love living in Arizona where we don't follow DST! I always hated it when I lived on the east coast. It's so hard on kids! - 3/9/2009 1:13:42 PM
  • Thanks so much. Isn't SPRING time wonderful. - 3/8/2009 12:08:31 PM
  • Thanks for leaving this posting up, it keeps reminding me that the time has changed. Even though my body just naturally changes with the time (I believe this has something to do with all the travel I have done in my life) but I never remember to change the clocks. - 3/8/2009 11:51:56 AM

    I agree it takes a few days to get use to this change, but oh how I do wish they would leave it this way.

    I love having an extra hour at night to go for a nice walk in the summertime or work in the yard. So wonderful and so much good exercise too.

    I really do not notice the difference! I really do not see the point in doing it to save light! I say just roll with it!!!! - 3/8/2009 4:10:36 AM
  • I absolutely detest the time change!!! My sleep habits never return to normal until fall when we change back. Anyone who has taught school has seen the toll it takes on our children, especially the younger ones. - 3/7/2009 7:54:40 PM
  • I thoroughly agree with those who say that it should be left one way or another or split it by a half hour each time. It seems like it's too disruptive to everyone's schedules and I know my kids never did well adjusting.

    On another note, I too am looking forward with some others to the change this weekend. I love that extra daylight in the evening and it means that summer is getting closer. Even though I live in Florida, it's been unusually cold this winter and I miss walking on the beach! - 3/7/2009 10:42:21 AM
  • I love "Springing Forward", doesn't disagree with me at all! I've been looking forward to it all winter. I abhor getting up in the dark and I love the early daylight. I'm feeling more energized and enthused already! Looking forward to it! - 3/7/2009 9:48:34 AM
  • I have been quite worried about it honestly. I was really bad with schedules and routines and just this last month have made so many changes and am really working hard to adjust to being on a healthy routine. When it is something so new and I am still learning and struggling this is just like throwing a wrench in my plan. Ugh. Hopefully I will adjust quickly and all will be well though. - 3/7/2009 8:55:07 AM
  • Or perhaps we could just adjust our business hours during the year. No absurd time changes but you still get more time in the afternoon. - 3/7/2009 8:28:41 AM
  • My solution? Work the night shift. It just means I have an hour less to get my work done tonight! - 3/7/2009 7:50:05 AM
