routine-lovin' girl right here!

That is my wonderful, amazing, happy relief!
I don't ever put a lot of thought into what I do.  I just do it.
I wake up, shower, put make-up on {and maybe do the hair}, get dressed.
I blog, enter giveaways, reply to blog-related emails, follow back, link up.
I go to work, push paper, meet clients, go to meetings.
I eat breakfast, lunch, dinner...and a "few" snacks in between.
I go home, spend time with the kids, put kids to bed, prepare for the next day.
Every. Single. Day.
It gives me a sense of peace when everything stays the same, so I don't have to think about it.
I am *not-so-sweet* when there's a bump in that cycle.
I run out of time in the morning because I can't decide what to wear.
My blogger account won't cooperate and it takes me longer to post something.
I eat way too much one day because of work stress, personal stress, or run-of-the-mill stress.
Kids get in trouble at school, son won't eat all his dinner, ran out of bread for kids' lunches, traffic home.

It feels like everything goes wrong afterward. 
Yes, I know. 
It's all in the way that I take it in and how I react to it.  Well, it's one of my quirks...getting annoyed easily.  {Picture me stomping my feet like a terrible, tantrum-filled child - ha!}
But I'm okay with it... :)

I thrive on routine too... and get annoyed very easily when things don't go as planned. It is something I am working on. :)

i get annoyed very easily. I'm organized and structured - I don't like unplanned things or hiccups in the plans! I'm slowly learning to let some of that go... because with 4 kids+3 dogs+1 fiance, nothing ever goes as planned!

Oh, I'm a routine girl myself but I'm learning to break out of it because N is two. Two year olds have little to no respect for routines some days. ;)

Don't get in my way during my "breakfast routine" it's more like a dance. Fridge, stove, sink. It's not that I'll freak out, but I'll forget what I'm doing! The eggs will have shell in them, I'll lose the cheese, the milk will end up in the pantry (bad news when it's found hours later).

I'm a new follower!
