Must be some kind of a bug that crept in my mind when I woke up yesterday and made me feel like breaking my weekend routine. I normally have some fixed things to do on Saturdays and Sundays like the cleaning, organizing things, and mostly house chores. I usually do most of the Mary Poppin’s job on Saturdays, except when my friends and me are meeting which we do every last Saturday of the month. Sunday is definitely my rest day and to prepare for the week ahead.
But this weekend seemed the beginning of a changed routine cos I was in a mood to go out and have driving lessons with hubby. The rain didn’t bother me when all the time I thought it was scary to drive in the rain. The much needed driving license motivated me to try to drive in whatever circumstances may be. I should have been creeping in bed under my quilt blanket when rains come in the weekend, as part of my weekend routine, hahaa.
I can’t imagine managing my day without routine, but sometimes it’s so darn boring to do the same things over and over. I feel like a robot with the tasks being programmed physically and mentally. I wasn’t feeling bored, but the need to change the routine was irresistible. I thought it wouldn’t do any harm if I skip doing the same things again and again; besides, I am my own master.
On the other hand, there’s one routine I wouldn’t want to change and that’s my computer routine, lol! But doing something different this weekend caused my computer habit to suffer a little. I’d always sit long hours by my computer in the weekend, mostly after watching films. But hubby chose the Apocalypse Redux that we ended up sitting on the sofa till past midnight. Now, I’m catching up on finishing this post. Hmmp!
OMG! I broke my routine also! Well, okay… it’s more like I dumped my diet and stopped exercising. Hehehe I think it’s that time of the month again!!
Rozie, it’s hard to maintain a diet routine, hahaa!
I have been derailed more like from my usual blogging routine! Not sure if that’s a good deal or not but yeah, I have neglected it for quite a time (unintentionally)- life and work run me over so something has to give and most of the time it’s my blogging. I actually kept up with it yesterday! yay! As for driving in the rain- weird as it may sound- I love driving in the rain! not the pouring kind of thing, it is when it’s drizzling a bit. ah pleasure!
I wish I’d be like you. I’m still trying to improve my driving and I think it’s a good start for me to be driving in the rain now. 🙂
You’re right doing the same things over and over is boring, kaya kailangan din ng variation. It’s okay to break routines. It could still be good for us too. Like in your case, you broke your routine and found out it wasn’t scary to drive in the rain.
I always break my routine. But just like you I also don’t want to break my computer routine,as much as possible hehe!
Hahaha! Amor, I know you couldn’t stand out without a computer, too. At least, we have this routine everyday.

I am a creature of habit and finding me breaking my routine is very rare … hehehe … But it’s good to do something utterly different once in awhile 😀
This means you don’t have a boring routine. Yes, doing something different is exciting, too.
