Don't forget to "Fall Back" an hour ....

 

Whoo Hoo ...an extra hour of sleep.... ::D:

 

not for me. it was an extra hour of work (but the sun will be up soon, so I can go home and try to sleep)

 

Well, sleep will come to those who wait too...graves can be a rough shift...(worked it for years..now I'm an insomniac) Just think in spring you get a short shift by an hour :lol:

Extra hour to entertain the kids before the sun comes up. Clocks? We don't need no stinking clocks when we're controlled solely by our metabolism.

 

Up since 4, adjusted. sigh.

I hear that Kit!! The Morglet has been up 4 times in the last 6 hours (time adjusted for daylight savings) :wacko: , and did a 7 pm - 1:00 AM stint of cranky "I don't know what I want, but this is not it!" shift last night.

 

Morg really is starting to look like his avatar.... :huh:

 

Ahh well. Back to work tomorrow. At least I can get some rest there. :lol:

I feel for ya, Kit. Fortunately, my little guy slept until 6am (adjusted). And, to make it even better, he played quietly in his crib for a bit, then my wife went in to get him.

 

I got to sleep in twice this weekend - to 7:30 on both days!

 

(Man, I remember when sleeping in meant until 2 pm. . . . )

Do you get paid for that extra hour when working a graveyard shift during daylight savings? :unsure:

 

As for me, I've been working 8 hour days since Monday, so my hubby as had the little. Yesterday we got his Halloween costume (he's a dragon this year and carrying a Blues Clues candy pail - two of his most favorite things). I've not yet convinced my mom, though, that his dragon costume will make a great winter coat for him, thus preventing the necessity of buying him one. :devil:

 

I don't forsee a day off for me until next Sunday, and then I can't work because I will have accumulated too many credit hours (I don't get overtime, but I get paid leave off) to do so, and they won't pay overtime. <_< But, then starting the 11th of November I'll have a three day weekend, a three day weekend, a four day weekend, follow by three normal weekends, then two four day weekends. I might extend the last one and basically take the 23rd of Dec through Jan 2nd off, but I haven't decided yet. I might, also, save the time off for ReaperCon (if we can go).

 

Unfortunately, we are scheduled to go to print on November 10th, and there are still books I haven't even seen cross my desk yet, and one is over 700 pages. :blink:

me - no, I don't (in fact, since I'm salaried, I don't get anything extra for working all weekend, yippee)

 

hourly employees are supposed to get an hour of overtime for working it

that is one thing I need to check on my pay stub this week to see if they jerked me & anther employee out of it, wouldn't put it past good ole Albertson's to do something like that. Probably won't be OT but probably just a normal hour of work (vs takin it away from us do to we clocked off the morning)

I hate, hate, HATE daylight savings time, and I'll tell you why: Biological clocks.

 

I have been up with some combination of two or more of my children since 3 AM. I am very twitchy today.

 

I'm used to no sleep. Honestly, I think I've averaged about 5 hours a night for the last four years, so I'm certainly functional, but think of the children!

 

Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?
