Same as both of you. I like that it won't be as dark when we leave in the morning, but I hate that it will get darker an hour earlier now. Come on Spring!

Neither. Just a big old PITA. I am not a fan of the time change. Pick one and stick with it; I really don't care which.

I would prefer that they stay with Daylight savings time year round....

@mkentosh: you beat me to it...

There is no extra hour of daylight. We simply shifted an hour of daylight from the late afternoon to the early morning. Worst thing about daylight savings time is that it gets dark at 4:30pm in December.

It shifts an hour of daylight from when I'm awake to when I'm still asleep. So for all intents and purposes I lost an hour of daylight.

On my day off yesterday as well as today I had planned on extra sleep. However, the guy operating a backhoe 100 yards from my house decided to work starting at the crack of dawn both days. :(

I spent an extra hour on the phone with my significant other last night, so neither of us got an extra hour of sleep or an extra hour of daylight!

The hour back didn't even register to me. My phone and computer already set itself. It was nice though, I was leaving the kitchen at what I thought was 1PM, but when I got to school and set everything up, I saw it wasn't even noon yet.

I'll have to remember to set the clocks in the house back when I get home though.

I was up late for the changover, so neither. But I usually sleep in.

If you guys don't like DST, move to Arizona. I also think the Hawaiian Islands don't observe it.

The whole get an hour/lose an hour thing is dumb to me. Either I get enough sleep or I don't. I don't have a way to "game" DST for a benefit. If my schedule is way off, I take some melatonin to get my circadian rhythm back in order.

As a parent, I benefit in no way. My kid doesn't know or care about the time change.

I don't know why but I'm more tired today than I've been in a long time. I thought the extra hour of sleep would help but I still feel like a vampire. *not one of the full frontal glitter vampires.

@curtisuxor: I like DST. I want it year round. I hate it when we quit DST.

@chronosquall14: My dog is accustomed to eating at 6am when my alarm goes off, at noon when I come home for lunch and at 8pm when I have my dinner. It takes me a month every time to get him used to the time change. He got me up at 5am this morning (6 as far as he was concerned) asking for breakfast. He is going to pester me for an hour tonight for dinner. He's well-behaved enough that he doesn't bark or act out, but he comes and bumps my elbow with his cold nose every few minutes to remind me it's dinnertime and you should see the long-suffering looks and sad, worried eyes he gives me which get more pathetic every minute he is made to wait past his meal time.
