My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Things that can make or break me

I can't pinpoint an exact physical thing that can make or break my day but it could be a combination of things. I am a very structured person. I have an exact time to get out of bed and hit the snooze button. Then I lay there and thing of my day for an exact amount of time. I get up and walk on my treadmill for exactly 30 min. After that I play on my computer until a certain time. I get ready for work and eat breakfast the same time each day. Then I leave for work at the same time each day. If anything changes my schedule, it messes me up all day. It might not be something bad but could be something good. My husband could decide to take me out for breakfast and that gets me a little irritated because it messes up my routine. I lay out my clothes the night before but I might change my mind that morning and then I can't decide what to wear. I hate being such a rigid person so I'm always praying that I could learn to be more flexible. Maybe that is why I like teaching because we have a set schedule each day. Whenever the schedule changes it upsets my students and I can really relate to their problems so I'm more understanding than other teachers. Maybe God made me this way so I can be a better teacher to my students. It might be meant to be, but sometimes it drives me crazy!

I understand your structure thing because my DH is just like that. In the mornings he does the same thing in the same order EVERY day! How can that be!!? I'm just a bit envious... enjoyed your post!

Wonderful post! I for one appreciate how this has affected your teaching. From reading my post, you know how important routines are to my family! The world needs all kinds, if there weren't a few of us rigid people, everything would fall apart!
