Are you a "creature of habit" ?

I have been thinking this week about how I have become a "Creature of Habit". I have noticed I have a routine for everything, well just about everything, in my life.

My days begin at 4 AM, if later then I can't accomplish my morning chores and still be in the office by 6:30. I stop at Jack-N-the Box for my morning coffee because it is down the street from my office (there is a Starbucks next door but I am not paying $4 for a cup of coffee not to mention I don't like it). Would it mess up my morning mental state if I stopped at AM PM for that coffee?

I get home from the office at 5 PM..not 5 till 5..not 5 after 5..but 5. If I am running late, I rush to make it in the garage by 5. Is there a timed mechanism on my garage door opener that will not open after 5?

I religously change my bed linens on Wed. and Saturday. Would my butt know if I slept on the same sheets for more than 4 days?

I get a salon manicure and pedicure the 1st Monday of each month and change my polish myself every Saturday. Would my world end if I had the manicure on Tuesday and changed polish on "gasp" Sunday?

I go to the cleaners on Monday - pick the clothes up on Thurs. OMG...the cleaners is open on other days?

I wonder why I do this. Is it because my life has become so regimented due to my caregiving responsibilities? Is it because if I keep things neatly bundled there is less chance of surprise and resulting disappointment?

About the only thing I don't schedule is masturbation...that happens when the mood strikes me...regardless of the time

I think I want back that gal who was impulsive...spontaneous and free.

Yeah DS the older we get the more "organized" we become. I'm trying to break the habit alittle I didn't make my bed today! But I did rake the leaves instead

OMG I must be a freak of nature then. I have no routine for anything.

Let's get free and wild DS, as you sound too tied down and you regulate yourself. Sheets after 4 days? Maybe if you are making biig messes.

I try and not get into too much of a routine, but certain days I need to - like when I have my girls to pick up/drop off. I do support for 3 different buildings, so I can be at any one of them in the morning depending on the workload.

Btw, if you schedule in masterbation, then you really need to cut lose - so don't let that happen.

You think your a creature of habit...........and I think your organized.......and i am jealous.........I do nothing the same way at the same time......except for a couple meetings I go to......and it wouldnt bother me if they changed the days each week......I am jealous of anyone who has their life probably never put anything off........and I am the great procrasitnator........maybe its human nature to wish we were different from what we are..............

I wish I could be organized. Tell it to my kids. Even when I place something somewhere I know it will be, it magically ends up in the strangest places like between the sofa cushions and "nobody touched it." This morning it was misplaced cap for a gallon of milk. The milk was in the fridge without it. I had to improvise with saran wrap and a rubber band. Sigh.

I'll have to say generally, no, I'm not a creature of habit, except some bad ones!

Ok, I'm extremely organized in many parts of my life...such as work...but I only make my bed when I have company, and if I have a to do list can usually accomplish up to 3/4 but never all of it, and I will put off doing menial chores until I have no choice...

Wish I could be more goal focused!! As much as I'm anal about things I need a lot more structure in my life.

If things don't run in order in my daily life I ALL messed up.

Sometimes when life seems somewhat out of control, we control what we can so we don't feel so helpless. Just a thought.

masturbation...that happens when the mood strikes me...
Hmmmmm I guess being "moody" isn't always a bad thing.......
