I’m such a creature of habit and this week, my routine has been shot to heck. It started Saturday with our trip down near Austin. We left here at 8 a.m. and got home just before 6 p.m. I’m no longer a “spend the day out” kinda girl. Monday and Tuesday Vince was home sick .. not sick enough to stay in bed all day but sick enough to sit in the recliner and bug me!
Monday the roofers showed up and they’ve been here every day since then .. and are here now. They aren’t here all day but I think they have a bigger job that they’re working on in the morning, then they break when the heat gets too bad and they show up here about 3 and work til about 8.
Tomorrow I have to go to a town about an hour from here and my morning will be spent there. Saturday . . back to Austin for more spinning lessons.
I do not like it when my routine is interrupted . . even if the interruption is something I want to happen.
It must be that I’m officially old when a disruption in my routine causes so much angst.

LOL – I can REALLY identify with your sentiments! It’s funny, I’m perfectly happy to stay home and don’t really want to go running around. I have found out that once I am out and around, I’m ok, but am really happy getting back home.
I love staying home now with so many things to play with! I do enjoy a good field trip but end up thinking “Oh, tomorrow I can stay home and do my things and no traffic and no silly people.”
Since my accident, 5 1/2 years ago, I find being home on my own schedule and my own agenda so much better.
I still love a good meal out or a SMALL planned with a list shopping trip, but I am ready to be back on my schedule.
Judy, I just wanted to take the time to tell you how happy I am to have discovered your blog! It’s filled with everyday real life, and the things you do are so interesting. You’re a maker and a do-er! But we all need to work at our own pace, and this comment is to let you know that sick days and roofers and exhausting trips happen to all of us. Personally, my pace can best be described as “glacial,” so I can identify with having an outing require two or three days to recover from it. You relax, girl!
Thanks, Lisa. It’s just weird to have so much going on in one week. Hopefully next week we’ll start off on Monday with Vince at work, no roofers here, no propane tank installations . . just a day of “routine”.

I hear ya! I love staying home and following my daily routine, too!

I totally get this! No water is my issue this week and today the guy is here trying to find out where our water is going. Not as easy as we thought it would be. It was not the obvious! I want my routine back!
Good luck to you next week.

And just where is neat Austin?
I’m with you all I love staying at home, puttering around. I’m becoming my father even starting to get chin hairs and all.

Well, this is entirely understandable. You’ve made the home into the environment you quite like. Also, you have plenty of things to do at home. You don’t need to lose time to running around!
