1. Did you remember to change your clocks this morning?

2. Does it take you a while to adjust to the time change?

3. Are you for or against DST?

4. Have you ever forgetten to change your clocks which caused you to be early ot late for something?

1. No we did not remember to change our clocks.  I got up my bedside clock said 7:00, did a few things then got on my computer whcih said 9:00. Was thinking that  it did not seem like I had been up for 2 hours, duh, it was only one hour.

2.  Yes it does. I am pretty regular with my meals and am not hungry at the "right" time. I do not really totally adjust my sleeping but that effect me more when we are on standard time.  I am an early riser.  When on daylight savings time I wake up around 6:00 but the months we are on sttandard time I wake up around 5:00. 

3.  I  kind of wish we did not do it.  I like having more day light in the evening but miss losing it in the morning. Since it stays lighter later in the summer already I do not think it needs that boost. 

4.  It was not because we had forgotten to change our clocks but becaue we did not know to change our clocks. The year we moved to Turkey they changed their clocks the weekend we moved there.  It was at a different time then we did here in the U.S. so we were unaware.  Ended up showing up at church an hour early.

1.  Most were automatic, but I changed one or two.

2.  Not usually, no.

3.  Neutral.

4.  Probably, but not for years.

I had to think for a moment what dst meant, Lol. 

Our phones changed automatically, DH changes the wall clock and table clocks.  No, but I remember living in Indy and the time change there being only once a year, that was a little confusing.  N/A.   I am more conscious of daylight savings this time of the year b/c we lose an hour but after a couple days I suspect my natural clock will kick back in and I won't need the alarm clock.

1. Did you remember to change your clocks this morning? Ours is later for some odd reason. 

2. Does it take you a while to adjust to the time change? No, I barely notice.

3. Are you for or against DST? I find it sort of annoying.

4. Have you ever forgetten to change your clocks which caused you to be early ot late for something? Yes, I usually forget, and I always get confused about which way they are supposed to be going.

"No, but I remember living in Indy and the time change there being only once a year, that was a little confusing." ------------ After the winter comes the spring.

Dh is the only one that still uses a traditional alarm clock, his changes automatically, but is messed up in the fall since they changed the date since we bought the thing, lol.
