Spring Forward!

Congress extended Daylight Saving Time by a month, touting the move as a way to save energy, reduce traffic accidents, and, perhaps most important, make Halloween a special and safer treat by allowing kids to go door-to-door while it's still light out.
"The beauty of Daylight Saving Time is that it just makes everyone feel sunnier," Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., said when the measure he cosponsored passed, moving the start date of Daylight Saving Time—as of this year—up three weeks to the second Sunday in March and its end date back a week to the first Sunday in November.

I know I will not get used to this for at least a couple of weeks. What are some ways this will help you out? What are some things that you don't like about it?
Just curious..
I hope you have a happy weekend!

I don't like "springing forward." It's just too difficult to get up at 5:30 as it is now, much less when I lose an hour!

I'm not a night owl anyway, so I end up going to bed while the sun is still up, at least during the week when I have to work. LOL

Can't they just leave the time alone? *sigh*

I just don't know why they continue to have "daylight savings time" at all. It seems like a rather outdated concept, and why does the time on the clock have to tell us how to enjoy daylight?

I have a tough time sleeping, and when we have a time change (either the Fall or Spring change), it throws my schedule off all the more.

I LOVE Daylight Savings Time! Having some extra daylight always makes me feel so much better! I hope your weekend has been a good one! *Hugs*
