    This might make you feel better

    The time changes 3/8/15. Not this weekend but the next weekend!! Only 9 more days! I don't know about you, but I always feel better on daylight savings time.

    Yes, love the daylight. maybe it'll bring some warmer weather with it. we can only hope.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Really? That early? Goodness, I do wish they would just give up and stay on the same time all year round.

    I am 1 of those people that don't like Daylight Savings Time...my internal clock stays stuck on regular time. Plus, I'm an early riser and I hate getting up that extra hour early!!!
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    I am another one of those who do not like daylight saving time, it takes me more than a week to get used to the change. I am not a morning person so hate getting up so early

    Love it when the clocks change this time of year, as it means Spring is just around the corner, meaning warmer weather

    I will another that wishes we would just stay on normal time. I work 12 hour night shifts, 6:30 pm to 7am, which means I will have to be at work 13 1/2 hours that night! Ugh! Not something I look forward to.

    I am a morning person so I hate the time change. It will be dark until almost 7:30 in the morning. I wish we would just stay on regular time all year.

    When your regular day starts at 4:30 a.m. You are not very happy about it. It takes a lot out of people to get used to the time change.

    Last year we were on a cruise to the Panama Canal. We went thru several time zones resulting in time changes. By the time we retuned we had no ill effects. We didn't realize there would be so many changes. The year before we didn't have any but didn't go as far West.

    UGH ! I hate the spring forward, the older I get the longer it takes me to adjust. I loved it when I lived in AZ and didn't have to deal with that!

    I really dislike DST--my favorite day of the year is when it ends!
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Two things I never understood - why we need a time change twice a year and why gas prices are listed as, e.g., $2.49.9 or $198.9. Why not just round it up to the next number?

    I love the extra daylight in the evening to get more time in my yard. I do worry about the little ones who have to go to the bus stop in the dark every morning.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Hate DST and we are retired not going to work every morning. God's time is better than the man's substitute. IF you want an earlier hour, open and close your business an hour earlier, so you can go play golf or work on the yard. We really do not need the government telling us when to go to work. My two cents worth. Not all states go on to DST.

    I think we need to do away with it. Its antiquated and serves no purpose that I can see. It only makes me late for church!

    I'm one of those that it just doesn't bother. I'm a night owl...go to bed between 2-3 A.M....awake around 7 A.M. Never needed much sleep....DH on the other hand hates it, and takes weeks to adjust to!
