Do I look like I can afford to lose an hour?

I can't stand this time change. I am so messed up. The kids' sleep schedules are messed up. MY sleep schedule is messed up. My normal bedtime is about 2:30 a.m. Now it's 3:30 a.m. That's too late and I can't deal with it. I've been slogging around all day in slow motion.

I'm going tomorrow night to get a pedicure. Troll gave it to me as a Christmas gift. I can't have my feet looking like this in my new little Easter slings, now can I? No! They need to be pretty and pink for their first airing of the season!

Wow!!! I thought I was the only one who went to bed that insanely late. You've made my day :-). Thanks for the link too by the way!!

It takes me nearly a week to figure out what time it is.

I really should go through the house and change all the clocks at once but I don't.

So some of them are changed and some are not. And I look at one and go "is that right?"

I am a person of the night LMC. It is my pleasure to have your blog link gracing my sidebar.

I worked graveyard shift for almost 20 years. When I started working nights it was like - - I was finally ME! LOL

I made that mistake for years too Mike. Now I KNOW that the cable box time is always right. Thank goodness for the cable box!

Monicar, you are living in Philadelphia. Do you really think you are going to be wearing those little Easter slings on Easter Sunday?

p.s. I am so glad that your time finally changed. For two weeks, it was a six hour time difference between me and my youngest. Made for staying up even later before I could call her.

Hey Monica! You get to wear nice summer like shoes!!!???
Darn the dog and I got snowed on today...grrrrr.

LOL and I can't change the damn VCR's time, been a long running battle... so I put a piece of electrical tape over it for half a year ... yeah very lame I know, but works for me!

And yes, thanks to the cable box at least I don't have to mess with that one! Or is it the cable box that's lucky?

I hate making the time change in the spring; the fall isn't a problem, of course.

My cats are also confused!

Well in that case Alice - I'm glad for the time change! I will be wearing those slings come hell or high water. If I have to tie plastic bags around my feet to get from the house to the car I'll do it. My feet feel soooooo good right now. There is just nothing like a pedicure after that cold, dry winter.

Leap - they are predicting snow flurries here tonight. *sigh* We had some beautiful 70 degree (Farenheit..) days followed by cold, sunny days but with a 40mph north wind - ouch. By Easter...well...you just never know what you're going to get on Easter.

AOW - I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has a problem with the spring time change. You're right - falling back is FINE. I hope you and your cats get adjusted soon!

I ABHOR DST!! I leave for work at 5:30 a.m. It was just starting to get light at that time. Now I'm back to going to work in the dark. :(

I'm a fan of DST. Waking up when it's dark makes me feel more productive, and I positively love the extra light later on. Of course, we could just lave it that way, but nevertheless...

I'm not a big fan of sudden changes, I guess that makes me a conservative ;-) but I really can't get to bed much later than 10:30 before if I'm going to be worth anything. I've come to appreciate morning over late-night.

AMEN to pink little pigies.
Good luck catching up that lost hour. I am so far behind...

tshsmom - terrible! I remember many a morning like that oh so many years ago.

Steve - I know many people who the time change does not bother. (something wrong with that sentence - I'll have to get my Strunk and White! - maybe it should be 'whom'.) Anyhoo - I like it to stay light later too but I could live with an 8:00 p.m. sunset over a 9:00 p.m. sunset in the summer. Just get rid of the time changes already - I would love that.

Dirtcrasher - a morning person! Our little family stands in awe of a morning person! You are so lucky to have that internal body clock set that way!

Me too Kate - but it seems to be my normal state of affairs, time change or no. I LOVED my pedicure. My feet felt as light as air when I walked - no, glided - out of the salon. Everyone should have a pedicure!!
