Summer is almost over...back to a clean cut routine...YESSSSSSSSSSSS!

I thrive on a routine. I am that kind of person. That's just the way I've been my whole life. Disorganization is what irks me. I like things planned out and it ruins my mood when things don't go as they're supposed to. Some people hate having to do this and that and do it at a certain time...not me. This is comfort for me.

While summer has been fun and lazy, I am really looking forward to structured days. I can't wait to get back into a definite wake and bed time for the kids. I am not a morning person and while I have really enjoyed waking later and not to an alarm makes the rest of the day unpredictable. If my son wakes at 9 am instead of 8, that pushes naptime back and then possibly bedtime too. And more structured mealtimes too.

Hopefully I will get into a really good writing routine. I'll get my 2-1/2 to 3 hours while my son naps after lunch...but that is just not enough.


  1. I thrive on structure, too! (And now I've spread that disease to my 6 year-old) LOL!

  2. Good luck with the routine, Stephanie. I like routine a lot too. I feel like having a writing routine allows me to focus the creativity on the writing instead of juggling other tasks.

  3. I love a routine as well. Unfortunately my toddler doesn't always cooperate. :)

  4. LOL! I'm wondering how it will son is 19 months. At least he still takes a really nice nap!
