Do You Live A Routine Type Of Life?

Do you like getting up every day and doing the same things? Shower, breakfast and then to work 9 to 5 , come home cook dinner, watch t.v. go to bed and start over the next day? Or are you one to get up and not know what the day will be like and you just go with the flow? Do you have a job but its never the same each day and never the same work hours, never the same people? Me? I did the work for others, strict routine for about four years, from age 16 to 20 years old and that was all I could handle. Before I was legal age to work my dad taught me to get out and find a job so that is what I did, I went to work and I was the boss and I made the work hours. I had discovered I was not a follower but a leader. There is nothing wrong with being a follower or a leader. The world has to have both to make things work. I do not follow routine, I expect no one around me to follow routine. Now I wonder, who has a daily routine? Picture is the rental I am working on.

We have a weekday routine - simply because Hubby works and the kids go to school with other weekly activities - and I get ready for their departures and arrivals . But in between when they are gone, I do the usual errands and such, but toss up the things that I do each day. Wth weekends, we have certain routines, but otherwise anything goes!

I am going to not be the same as most people and that is perfectly fine for me. As a person growing up i lived with a routine that others found strange. I made my bed. And brushed my teeth. After that I let the day go as it was. Now I wake up and brush my teeth and then make my bed. The rest of my day is not planned. if i am going out the door I am most often aware the same day. When I worked I would work and the rest of my day was never planned. Like this morning I swore I would not clean anything. I am waiting to get on my hands and knees with my new cleaner to clean my bathroom floor. My back is killing me in so many ways. But it's me. Hope you could understand. p.s I must say something. I know a lot of people who eat and drink before brushing that is what strange ment. thank you.

You always strike me as being ambitious and as my grandfather would say "no grass grows under your feet". Now that I'm retired my daily routine is pretty much the same but I try to keep my life interesting so I don't get bored.The years I worked I did do the whole 9to 5 bit and looked forward to weekends so I could have fun.
Very good question For me I do seem to follow routine each day with minor variations. I am a list maker and need to check items off it every day to feel a sense of accomplishment. Of course, when I am on a vacation it is so relaxing to not have to worry about those lists. Maybe I will try to plan an occasional imaginary vacation day in the future, because following a set routine can actually become stressful in addition to unfulfilling.
