My clock is already set back, my computer & my phone auto set to the server. So I think I'm good to go. Really look forward to going to church an hour earlier than before as well.

Thank you for the reminder!

The only problem is when you have kids you are just waking up at 5 instead of 6. I wish I could convince my kids that sleeping in is amazing.

Turning the clock back is much more convenient. Really nothing to lose if you forget.

Whereas if you forget on the night that the clocks move forward an hour, that could be a problem the next day.

If the clocks move back an hour why would church be an hour earlier? Isn't it a set time regardless of DST?

Ha! We have an 11 day old and I can assure you she isnt yet aware of daylight savings. I guess when your up every 2 hours as it is whats it matter. Next my toddler will be running around at about 6:30-7 so things get even better.

Tourists always think I'm lying.

I'm at a hotel part time and my shifts always fall when the time changes. It's 5:17am right now here and I'm waiting for the calls to come in on what time it is and all the people who are coming down for breakfast too early or too late. nearly had a guy jump over the desk and hit me a couple of years back.

Give your kids a couple years, you'll be shaking them to get them up at noon. I speak from personal experience.

Its all a matter of perspective. What was 9:00 AM on Saturday was now 10:00 AM on Sunday. So if Sunday was like Saturday, we have gained an extra hour of our life. According to Saturdays time I did go to church an hour earlier, but not according to Sundays time. If you know what I mean.

I didn't enjoy an extra hour of sleep. I enjoyed an extra hour of work. Got a lot done on my ebay store & ecrater store. So hoping to make some extra money this week selling excess inventory.
