So.. has the time change messed everyone up?

There is hardly anyone here this morning.
I was up at 5 am,
I was on for a little while and went back and tried to sleep some more. All of 30 minutes

I think we need to drop daylight savings time.

I like this one where we gain an hour in the day. Wasn't there a proposal a few months back in regards to stopping daylight savings time or moving it... something about how much oil it would save.... faintly remember it.

Oh darn! I got up at 6 AM..not 7.

Just like in the Rehab Home. Nothing to do so I was going to sleep early..like 8PM so I would be out in the hall at 2:30 using my walker to strengthen my hip. Usually it was 4:30 though.I'd go in and take my "little washcloth bath" (too much info. huh..) put on my face, dress and walk to the dining room (154 steps) pluck a little flower of one of the tables..put it behind my left ear (right Wasabi?) stop at our Lounge and one of the gals would bring me cup of coffee while the rest of the "residents" woke up.

By 2007 DST will be extended about 1 month or so. I'd think I'd prefer just staying on DAT all year.

hahahaha! I did the same thing, looked at the clock- which of course will truly not reflect the actual time of the day until I have to set my alarm this evening- got up, then thought, WAIT! IT IS REALLY 7:30, and was doin' cartwheels and a nosedive back under the covers wooohoooooo! It is nice though now, my bathroom clock is correct, cause I never changed it last time around. We have many different timezones in our house, depending on which room you are in.... Rebels, we are.....

Funny!!!

When the girls were small it always messed them up hence me too, now they are much older it still messes me up - so maybe it was me all along?

I actually got more stuff done this morning - made another batch of roasted red pepper sauce, made some oatmeal-dried cranberry bar cookies, dug up a flower bed and put some new dirt down for next spring, re-organized a cabinet (so many more to go........).

I like daylight savings time.
