Rut? No....just predictable

I love routine. There I said it out loud.

I always used to pride myself on the ability to roll with the flow, take things as they come. I loved the surprises, I never made a "plan".

I've been in this house a month, this job 3 weeks. I'm in a rut and proud of it.

Now that's not to say I don't enjoy mixin' things up every now and again. But I like knowing that Monday is grocery store day (for the big stuff - I usually hit the market every day. Less waste that way.) I like knowing I'll be home at 6:04 every night.

I even have my day scheduled at work. First 15 mins settle in. Then it's review emails, return calls. Check the run schedules at both plants, follow up on late orders and then acknowledge new ones. Throw in a lunch run and that's my day!

It's normal. And THAT is what I love. It's what I have craved for my entire adult life.

Now that's not to say I won't enjoy just takin' a day off at the spur of the moment, or runnin' out at night after work cause I just got an urge. BUT for the most part - I love routine.

Now - the big challenge is scheduling in time for blogging now that I can hit it like I used to. But I will, you can bet on that.

Oh, and my "schedule" for the holiday weekend? Today is Jeans Day (another reason to love Fridays) then it's off to Mama's Saturday. Home Sunday morning and then I got nothing. Not A Darn Thing Scheduled. I can do what ever my little heart desires.

It's nice.

It's normal.

I'm sure your neighbors will be having a big shindig.

I would be lost without my routine.

I can actually tell time by my routine, keeps you grounded and then you know exactly when you can deter from your routine.

Living in a small town I am sure there is going to be a big parade and probably some speaches on Memorial Day.
