I literally saw the time change right before my eyes! I was looking at the computer and it said 1:59 am then it went to 2:00 am and a second later went to 1:00 am! So cool!
I have never seen it change, I usually am asleep until the next morning when I have to then change all the clocks in the house.
So we do gain an hour this time around! What do you bees think of changing times twice a year?

I don’t know what time it is, and it confuses me.

I understand why they do it, but I don’t have to personally enjoy it.

I let my phone do all the work for me.
Because I’m wickedly lazy, yet cool at the same time. 😉

I was happy because it meant I have an extra hour of sleep. I suggested we go to the bar and celebrate the extra hour of bar time (our bars close at 2am) but we’re not really bar people… lol

It doesn’t really matter to me most of the time, but because I did shift work for a while, our policy was always that you ended up having to work an extra hour if you were on graveyards that night. For free… grr
I guess there was the idea that you’d make it up later, as if you worked overnight on the “spring forward” shift we got to lose an hour of work, but since we worked 2 days, 2 graveyards, sometimes it took a realy long time to get it back!

I love it for the extra hour of sleep. I hate it because when I go into work, it will be dark, and wehn I come home, it will be dark. Blah.

This year it’s affecting me horribly. Before daylight saving, Fiance and I (very long distance) would skype just before I went to bed/he got up. That was pushing it, but worth it to have a chance to hear/see him. I cannot sacrifice an extra hour of sleep every night, so this means I will be talking to him less 🙁

@Scorpio88: I know, it’s depressing!
I feel sad for people who have to work in an office tower in a little cubicle and away from any windows. It could lead to depression. And with some who have only half hour lunches you really don’t have time to go outside for sun and fresh air!

Fall-Back and I do enjoy the extra hour of sleep… but not necessarilly the extra hour of darkness.
Like yourself happyface, I am in Ontario, and Fall and early Winter can be brutal in that we don’t get a whole lot of daylight… and lose so much light wise from now thru New Years (10 Minutes a week can really add up). Sucks to get up when it is dark to go to work, and come home in the dark as well…
And it gets worse the farther north one goes !!
So from a Canadian perspective, I wish we were on Daylight Savings Time year-round (not gonna happen tho because the US wants to do Daylight Savings & Standard Time… and us Canadians just follow whatever they are doing… such as a couple of years ago when they moved the annual boundaries from October into November… we went along with it and matched them… partly because we do so much trade together, it was deemed it would be too complicated if we weren’t all on the same clock. Oh well, c’est la vie)
I definitely feel out of sorts for a week or two after a time change.
They say statistically… that the follow-up week to 10 days after a time change are the worst for car accidents are people become aclimatized.
So everyone, needs to be really aware and careful out there !!

God bless Arizona and it’s lack of time change! It confuses the hell out of me. I don’t get it.
Although I have to deal with the SO in England suddenly becoming 7 hours ahead instead of 8 hours ahead. I get all confused about what time he comes home and goes to sleep, etc. Ugggh.
Leave the time alone!

@bowsergirl: Agreed! They don’t do it where I live either.
Time change made sense back in the day when everyone was a farmer but nowadays it’s just confusing!
