Hello, my pretties! How are you all doing? Well, I hope! I’ve been doing well enough. I promise I’m still alive! I had forgotten how time-consuming moving and furnishing a new home was! And that’s not even considering all of the small stuff I have yet to buy! Oof!
But since I’m still alive, I think it’s time for a new post, right? And I’m gonna post on something I truly love – routine.
Being a person who tends to get really, really anxious when things don’t go according to plan, I live for routine, and don’t find it even a teeny bit boring. I actually thrive on routine and planning, so I thought why not share mine here? I know, I’m such an interesting blogger (not).
Without further ado, here goes nothing:
Monday through Friday: Get up at 8, after being actually awake for as long as there’s been daylight – so anywhere between 5 and 7, depending on weather and season. Have breakfast, brush teeth, have shower if I hadn’t done it the night before. If so, I have it at lunch time. Start work at 8:30 with a morning meeting, then start taking customers or doing other tasks. Get up and do some light exercise every hour or so, since I’d be sitting all day otherwise. Have lunch at around 1 pm, still working. Go on lunch break at around 4 pm, when I take a shower and a short nap. Back to work until 6 pm or until work is done, if there’s still something left after six. If I’m not going out: write (blog posts, collaborative writing, emails) for about one hour, turn off computer, go have dinner. If I’m going out: get off the computer as soon as work is done, get ready to go out, and write when I get back if I’m not too tired. Bed time is usually around 10 pm because I am secretly an old lady in a 36 year old body.
Saturday: Get up at around 10, do some chores, have some coffee or a fruit, brush teeth, have a shower and get out the door at around 11. Go to the mall, have lunch, window shop for a while, and then go to the Walmart next door and shop for groceries and whatever else I need, if I haven’t done any shopping on my previous outing. Once I’m done, I go home, run a load of laundry, do whatever else I need to in terms of cleaning, and then take a nap before sitting to write or watch something.
Sunday: No set routine at all. Wake up when I wake up, do whatever chores I haven’t gotten to on Saturday. Put away laundry, if I haven’t done it the day before (I don’t have a dryer). Sometimes have lunch with the parents – either at a restaurant or at home (miner or theirs). Sometimes rest all day, watch a documentary, write more, do some research for things I want to know or ideas for future blog post, read some of the tons links I bookmark for later, etc.
Well, I guess that’s it. Do you all have routines, like them, hate them? Share them with me in the comments! If you have a post about your routine, you’re more than welcome to share it, so we can all read it!
See you on the next post! Love you all!
