If there is anyone who enjoys a routine, it is me. I thrive on it.
When thrown off of a routine I frequently stumble, try to hard, even get sick at times.
However, routines can become ruts.
Times such as the New Years, holidays, vacations, snow days, etc. bring a much needed opportunity of unstructured time that can be such a blessing for things that will never find space in a routine such as extended rest, projects, or heavy doses of family time.
Or even getting the Christmas tree and decorations down the earliest ever – Dec 27!
