Hate it hate it hate it!!!!
Ya know, I really don't have much of a preference between winter time and summer time. Waking up in the dark, or driving home from work in the dark, they're both hard, so I really don't care too much WHICH time we stick with. Either way, the days get shorter in the winter, so I don't see much difference between the two.
But do we really need to F**K with the clocks twice per year? I had to keep cranky children up late on purpose on Saturday so they wouldn't be waking up at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. And then for little kids, they get accustomed to going to bed in the dark in the cooler months, then can't go to sleep when the clocks change and it's too bright outside--I had to buy blackout curtains in April this year. And now, it's been so light for so long, even with the curtains, that the boys won't go to bed now in the pitch black because it's too dark
Having an "extra" hour of sleep does NOT make up for having to mess around with sleep patterns for 2 weeks. And what is the PURPOSE of Daylight Saving Time now, anyway? To reduce the number of light bulbs we use? So, what? Just buy the groovy new compact fluerescent ones instead.
HATE! Daylight Saving Time. Just pick one, people and stick with it!
