I am the type of person who thrives on a schedule and with a routine. Ruts - I love them! I adore eating and doing the same thing over and over and over and my favorite work experience was any which required me to wear a uniform. I like stability, routine, monotony, and patterns. That being said, the whole basement flooding episode threw me off my routine. For one who enjoys being settled, any breaks in routine are really difficult to come back from. I've really been off my game, neglecting my blog, neglecting my friends' blogs, forgetting things, missing appointments. That's one problem with leaning so much on stability, routine, and ruts: any monkey wrenches throw me for a loop! So, that having been said, I'm trying to get myself back on track and hopefully you will all bear with me!
