R Is For Routine

It rained yesterday and even this morning a little. The skies are still pretty threatening though.
I don't mind the rain. I can still get around and not feel like it holds me back in any way. Snow, on the other hand, is not Freda-friendly. It's depressing, cold, piles so high you can't get around, and just plain sucks.
I'm so glad Spring has finally sprung and pray the snow is done.
It remains to be seen though with all this crazy weather we've been having.
Global warming, yeah okay.... more like global snowing.
Anyway, my R post is not about the rain, though it could be I have lots to say. No today I'm gonna discuss routine.
Okay, maybe not this routine, but routine in general.
I am the kind of girl that lives for routine. I know some people say monotony, but I say routine.
I like knowing that my day is balanced, I know what to do and expect, and have set tasks to do. I prefer to ensure my daily tasks happen at the same time every day, like feeding the dogs, reading my bibles, even cleaning tasks.
Does it make me anally organized? Yes.
Do I like being anally organized? You betcha!
A sense of monotony makes me feel like I know where my day is going. I don't mind the odd wrench thrown in here and there, and yes, I love surprises, but I still demand those daily tasks get done and at that specific time.

So what about you? Do you enjoy routine? Do you have things that you set time for each day or certain days and do not steer away from? What is your routine task(s)?

  1. Except for feeding the cat as soon as I get up (he would stare holes in me otherwise...) I am as far away from organized as one can be! But, then, I'm a Gemini and can't help it :D

  2. I have a routine sorta, but I am good about straying from it from time to time, though. :) Hope you'll come by to see me on my new blog home when you get a chance!

  3. I am still living with winter and more snow coming for tomorrow's morning commute! Please make it stop! My favorite routine task is taking my dogs outside!

  5. I should have a routine...I'd get more done. It's 9:30 in the morning and I'm sitting here in my pajamas. In all fairness though I have to wait until I put some clothes in the dryer. Then I'll jump in the shower. I think I don't have a routine because my mother was regimented about what had to be done and when. For instance, every morning she had to clean the bathroom before she did anything else. Sadly, when she got sick she wouldn't leave for the emergency room until the bathroom was cleaned. She never returned to that house before she died and the last thing she ever did there was clean the bathroom. I thought that was kind of sad. Maybe that's one of the reasons I'm routine-less.

  6. I guess I'm more of list kinda girl. I like crossing things off a list! It makes me feel productive...

  8. I have entered in to a small routine since I adopted a dog. I don't like it. I like things to be unexpected in my life.

  9. Your routines sound like mine. They are things that you want or need to do everyday, so you plan for then. SO, they are not routine (a word that may have a bad connotation) but are planned activities. For me, that's making the coffee before I brush my teeth, or writing bills on Saturday so they get in the mail that day! Good for you! {:-D

  10. The older I get the more I like routine for a lot of things with an occasional surprise thrown in now and again for good measure!

    Rain is actually always a surprise where I live so it really tied this link together for me!

    I'm working on blog visits again slowly.

    Sorry I've been absent...it wasn't part of my favored routine!

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
