I'm sure I'll love it in a few days, when it is noticeably lighter longer; but tonight, I am cursing the time change. So many of us CPers, me included, sleep so little, & now they are taking a whole extra hour of precious sleep (or potential for sleep) away from us? How cruel! Just had to vent as I lie here listening to the rain, awake & in pain.

Hope you all are sleeping!

Wish I was, Skeye! I've actually got to get myself up, although not terribly early. Just took more pain meds.

I usually like the time change, but found my meds got all screwed up. I slept away half the afternoon. Like you said, in a few days maybe the good part will kick in, because I do love that it stays lighter longer.

Hope you are sleeping by the time I'm writing this!

As i went to bed, my wife commented that I had not changed my clock yet. I just explained that time is not very relevant to me as I have to wait until my body gives out. This is strong language but I have grown to hate nights. I hope that with the time change it will stay lighter longer as I have commited to getting off work earlier and walking with my wife. I tell people who ask me how I slept the night before that I slept like a baby (with colic). I also tell my drs that I sleep in the rotisserie position. Hope the rain puts you to sleep.

Well it didn't get me yet and shouldn't today because my alarm didn't go off this AM. I guess I must have messed it up when I was changing the time. The good thing is I always wake at 4:00am or earlier so I woke at my 4:00am or our new 5:00am! So I was an hour late for work this AM! Oh well, I think I'm aloud to be late once a year!! So the time change will surely get me tomorrow afternoon, if I get up at the real 4:00am that is!!!
