noun rou·tine \rü-ˈtēn\
: a regular way of doing things in a particular order
: a boring state or situation in which things are always done the same way
While having a routine can be either a blessing (definition #1) or a curse (definition #2) for me the routine of getting up and taking a child or two to school was an automatic way of getting me started with what I had to do. Now I have to find a new way to get started. This is both disconcerting and exciting. It also raises the possibility of not even having a routine. I guess time will tell.
Have a fun day!
