Anyone else struggling?

It didn't help that I stayed out WAY past my bedtime Saturday night. I'm getting too old to recover from those things :-(

Me too basil. Stayed up WAY late Sat night/Sun am. And yes, I've never liked dark mornings...BUT, I'm happy about longer evenings! smile

It's worth it for more daylight after work to exercise and not feel like a vampire. grin

My oldest dog and Queen Bee also resents the dark mornings. It took me several minutes to wake her up this morning and that was on my second attempt. All the other dogs were and had been outside for awhile ...but she wouldn't budge nor even open her eyes. crazy

I slept in late yesterday, that seems to have adjusted my brain just fine. When it was dark out this morning coming to work I wasn't especially chipper though.

Overslept by about 30 minutes this morning. We haven't used an alarm clock in years - my internal clock usually works pretty well - and our old Queen Bee (like Joker's) is usually up and whining. However since it's dark in the morning she slept in. Oh well - I was still plenty early to work - just not as early as usual.

We need to all work together to pass a constitutional amendment that moves the time change for the spring forward from the middle of the night on Saturday night to 4pm on Friday!

There is so much craziness in my life right now that the time change was a non-event for me. Just add it to the list and move on.

I hate it! I was exhausted after my week last week and fell asleep Sat afternoon. Then I couldn't go to sleep Saturday night! Mornings are tough for me anyway. I wake up in the evenings and can't go to sleep!

I woke up at 4:39 this morning, couldn't fall back asleep until 5:30. Then had to get up at 7:00. Hopefully tonight will be better!

AMEN!!!

Hate the dark evening, not a morning person so light or dark who gives a rats arse!

Give me more light in the evenings so I can get stuff done around the house.

I really don't have a preference but the change kills me!!!!! It'll take me at least 3 weeks to get used to it.

There was a bill introduced in the TN legislature this session to not comply with DST (like Arizona). If that happens, it means East TN will be on CDT and Middle/West TN will be on MDT.
Now that will be crazy.
