It's weird, but the month before the time change my sleep schedule went completely haywire and "falling back" would have just made it worse, BUT, it seems that my body was reacting as if the time had already changed.

What's weirder is that now that the clocks are turned back, my sleep schedule is normal again!

I'd prefer eliminating the fiddling with the clock and just establish a set of summer and winter work schedules; something like 0800 to 1500 in the winter and 0700 to 1600 in the summer, with vacation time allowances expressed in hours instead of days.

I'd like it if the cat came with a programmable setting. He's woken us at 520 the last two mornings in a row.

It doesn't. I get up when I want (as long as I'm not late for work). I go to bed when I want. Clocks are a human invention, created by our ancestors to satisfy some need to quantify the world around us.

Don't you need one of those human inventions to know when you're going to be late for work?

For tens of thousands of years, people listened to their internal body rhythms. Timekeeping devices are only a relatively recent invention. I wake up at pretty much the same time every morning without an alarm clock. I think most people do.

As far as being late for work, since I'm allowed to come into work anytime between 6 am and 10 am, there is quite a bit of wiggle room.
