It doesn't feel like an hour behind, yet.

The first day of any time change feels so different. I still got the same sleep, woke up about the same time. Doing things as routine. Only, I'm actually doing them about an hour later than I would've yesterday, yet it's the same time about. I seriously hope this is the last time we fall back, because even as an adult, time changes suck. At least George has four days to adjust before going back to work.

It still seems about the same to me. I think when it gets dark by 5:30 though it will be a real noticeable difference.

Yeah, and I'll hear my husband cursing for a while.

I'm oblivious. Kitty is asleep at my feet. I got some stuff done today. I am tired. Just another day.

At this hour, I would agree. Preparing to do my evening routines. Get things going to have dinner, and relax for the evening. However, when the sun sets that first night and you have time to witness it, then it can be real jarring.

@kaylachan I like the fact that the sun will rise "earlier" and get my day going.

I woke up same time in terms of sunlight . . . otherwise time doesn't feel different. I hate these time changes, but I will say I prefer this time change rather than what we have in spring.

My day was such a total blur that it did not feel like there was a time change. Of course I got up at 7am and was back in bed resting for the remainder of the morning by 9am so I was not really up much today.

You also haven't been feeling well. So, you are allowed to lose a day or two.

We forgot to set our clocks back and that messed up our morning. Although my husband has a cold so we didn't go to church or anything so although we stayed home, we were confused about the time until we changed the clocks this afternoon.

I "slept" an extra hour, if you want to call having horrible nightmares sleeping. I have to talk to my primary care physician or pain doctor about the pain induced nightmares. Petey, bless his soul and kitty heart, was right next to me "chirping" me awake from this one. He has also assumed the role of doctor too. Anyhow I'm hoping to not be too busy today. I need to straighten up my storage locker downstairs, but I think that it can wait another day. I'm not a big fan of daylight savings, it is a horrible adjustment for my system. I looked up the history of DST and it's pretty involved. A LOT of it refers to it being used to save energy for use during the war efforts. I'm definitely not in favor of something to help with fighting and so forth. I have a cat that will help me adjust. When it gets too late and he's lonely for his MaMa, he sits beside me an "chirps", he still hasn't gotten saying "Meow" down yet, but of course whoever had him before taught him NOT to meow while they were abusing him. Anyhow, I have two more clocks to adjust-maybe three, my neighbor will get me to help him with his. I have the one by my chair and the microwave and I'm done. The computer stuff adjusts itself through the internet provider.

No, I wouldn't call pain induced anything quality sleep. But, you've got a love bug to help you. Funny enough. Chilly was extra chatty this morning, too.

That seems to be the concern of many. I read a few posts here today about the same. My husband works with clients in the US. Though, India has no time change, I can hear him complaining about it for a while every time there is a change . It's confusing and even his work schedule and meetings get effected
