Creature Of Habit

Change. I don't like it. I'm a creature of habit, for sure. I like routines and knowing what's coming next. It makes me happy to know that most evenings we are going to sit as a family and have dinner. I like knowing that most nights after dinner, my husband and I are going to sit down on the couch with our cups of coffee and watch Jeopardy together, while the kids play in the backyard or on the computer. I like being able to look ahead in my calendar and know what's happening on a given day. Sudden changes in routine or last-minute plans stress me out for some reason. I wonder why? Sometimes I wish I was more of a go-with-the-flow kind of gal, but, I'm just not. Maybe being a creature of habit sounds boring to some. But, to me it makes me feel content; safe.

What about you? How do you handle change?

You are so my people. I too am a creature of habit. Change is very hard for me. It's probably why I'm struggling with envisioning what life will be like once baby #3 arrives.

Spontaneity is not something I do easily either. :)

I don't like change either but once I do it then I know I needed it, change is hard for a lot of people
