I detest turning the clocks back in the fall.......it's very depressing for me. It's a good thing I live in such a sunny part of the world or I'd be in really bad shape.
Fall is a depressing part of the year for me anyway, and having less daylight at the end of the day just adds to it. I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and it's sure no fun.
I really feel for you, Kades and sending you a sincere hug........

I agree, Andy. My first move in the morning is towards my coffee anyway.

Well, that's the second one. The first move is the obvious one.

At least I'm not hiccuping! D**n, did that get old! I still have a rib hurting from it! I think I cracked it! Yikes!

Glad to hear you're over the hiccups. Rib injuries hurt like crazy.

I tend to stay up late and sleep late. So I always wake up in daylight.

Man, I have NEVER had the dang hiccups for that long. Almost 3 entire days! The last morning, I woke on my left side and as soon as I opened my eyes, I hiccuped a big one. I felt the rib crack. OUCH! I never got hurt that easy when I was in my 20's!

I almost always turn out my bedside lamp at 2:30am and get up at 9-10 in the morning. I got up at 3:30am for way too many years! We had to be at work, in our work area, working at 6am, mostly 7 days a week.

I hear that! No alarm clock, no more suits and ties. Once in a while I get up early for my grandson's visit. But that's different.

And NO MORE BOSS! How cool is that? My last one was the epitome of all the bad things you've ever heard of bosses. All he needed was a twisted cross on his upper arm to complete the image he gave. He was a replacement for a very sick boss who died shortly after. The last one was hired as a "Hit Man" to fire or layoff 90% of the staff in the Facilities Department. He gave em what they wanted!

Interesting how that works. My last boss was an actual criminal as well as being a rotten boss.

Now you retired people just have to cut it out. Us working stiffs still have a few more years of working in the dark!
