Horrors! The schedule is topsy-turvy.
My husband got up extra early this morning to keep an appointment.
Husband got up and wife (me) stayed in bed.
Last one up makes the bed. I had to do that chore this morning.
Husband took an early shower, so I stayed in my pajamas until he left. I had good intentions. I was going to shower and dress as soon as he was gone. Ninety minutes later, when husband returned, I was still in my pajamas, working on e-mail, blogs, and Twitter, drinking coffee...
I never spend the morning in pajamas. I always read the newspaper and then a book while I drink my morning coffee. I always start my chores or go to my computer by 9:30.
A creature of habit says "I never..." and "I always...."
I'm a creature of habit.
That's not all bad, of course. Developing good habits and routines help us take the garbage out on schedule, write every day, and remember to floss and brush.
But isn't it good to shake up the little stuff from time to time? Take a 30-minute walk on a bike trail instead of inside a grocery store? Drink tea instead of coffee? Have waffles and bacon for supper? Yeah, that's a good thing.
So I declare the rest of the day to be "Do Everything Different Day" at my house. See you later.
