I have this non-routine routine when I'm off work, like today. I get up at the normal time (crack of pre-dawn) and try to sleep late. Thinking of the dog and how he needs to go out, I finally rouse myself and head downstairs. I think of my dad and how I should go over early to visit him, but first I'll just check my e-mail, facebook, blog comments (if there are any), etc. It is more like me (so I say) to get dressed first, but since the dog needs to go out, I stay in my jammies. I think, "I won't put on slippers, so that will make me go back upstairs because my feet will be cold if I get on the computer too long..."
So, here I sit. It's been over 90 minutes, and yes, my feet are FREEZING. But the dog got out. I have yet to see my dad (next door) and I've sent out an e-mail to organize meals for a family with a new baby. I've written short replies to e-mails (nothing of much substance) and I'm getting ready to meet a dear friend, Kassie, and her partner, Joni, for lunch at the Indian restaurant, Sitara (of Muncie).
I say this is not routine, but I do it when I don't go to work. I better learn to just put on my slippers.
