This time of year is terrific.  Yes, it's hard getting used to losing an hour of sleep.  I love the longer days!

I missed my hour of sleep last night but I like the fact the evenings will be longer and I can spend more time outdoors.

I needed a good nap yesterday  just to make up for the hour we lost. But at least when I leave work there will still be light out!

I love when we go forward, because i like the extra hour of daylight. I have never really been affected by daylight savings with sleep lost or sleep gained.

It's o.k. once you get use to the time change.  I'll have to use my alarm clock for a couple of weeks until I get adjusted again. 
Have a wonderful day!

I love the extra hour of daylight and that the days will get longer and longer as we get closer to summer.

I don't like it. I prefer it the way it was. I sleep less and I get tired especially when I get up in the morning.

I really enjoyed the extra hour of sun tonight and it was actually warmer than it had been. But I did miss the hour of sleep and it will take me a few days to catch up. I read an article that accidents at dangerous jobs are the highest this week, they think because people lost the hour of sleep and are not as aware on the job.

I agree it's a waste of time.  We still have the same amount of daylight but now I can't get started as early in the morning because I like to wait for daylight to let my dogs out and start feeding them.  I was getting started by 7am and now it's 8am which shortens my morning a bunch.

That's being a little short-sighted. It will be back to 7am next month for you, and then closer to 6am in May.

I wish it would stay one way or the other.

I personally don't see what the big deal is.  There was a guy at work Sunday complaining how "I hate this new time" and on and on.  What is the big deal?  You lost one hour of sleep.  And it was your choice to set up until 2am.  FYI you can set your clock up before you go to bed.  You don't have to set up and do it right at 2 o'clock.

Idk.  Seems people just need something to complain about.  It really has not effected me.  I like it staying daylight later.  I do wish they would just leave it alone one way or the other.  Preferring this way.

It is taking me longer than usual to adjust to the time change this year.  I do like the longer days.

I do not like it, but there is nothing I can do about it so I deal.

I hate losing an hour of sleep too. It plays heck with my "internal rhythm" so to speak. But I'm starting to sleep more regularly again by now.

Google JediJohnnie and May the Force be with you!
