It has been a while since I felt the familiarity of routine. It's been a splashing, drinking, laughing, silly old time for quite a while now. And what fun we have had. It's only once in a while I start thinking about the maintenance things associated with routine that I am familiar with.
Ok, I admit to missing some things. I am missing my exercise routine for one. I admit it. As much complaining as I do in the winter in Regina, and the pain associated with the back injury that took me out of commission whether I liked it or not; the back is starting to feel almost normal, and the weather is beauteous. Actually that might be the only thing I really miss. Just running around familiar spots.
I do miss my regular music practice in fact as well. But we have been able to keep up a bit of that. A good 2 hour practice every couple of days has kept that part of me somewhat sane if not completely satisfied.
It's hard to keep routine when you are on holiday, catching up with family and friends. Different beds, different houses, and different people to adapt and be flexible with so they get to maintain some of their sanity as well. We are all a pretty good bunch, but being out of routine can be a challenge for everyone really. Maybe no routine is not quite no worries.
I guess maybe the thing is to appreciate the variety and then appreciate the routine when that happens as well. Maybe I need to find a way to sneak in a bit of exercise for my own state of mind too. Probably wouldn't hurt to cut back on the drinking side of things. I know it's holiday time, but come on lady... Yeah, I know. I can feel it.
Happy day all, I'm thinking I'd probably be pissed off at myself if I was hearing myself right now and I was in Regina, land of the cold, so I'm sorry about that. Flipping humans are never satisfied.
