Everyone has a routine, whether it’s to turn off the lights before going to bed, taking a potty break at 10:15 in the morning, eating a snack at 2:30 pm. Everyone has at least something. And you know if you don’t go through your routine, your whole day is ruined. One of my things is that every morning, in my sleepy voice, I will ask Bob if he fed the dog. And he will reply, “Of course, I did!” in that I-can’t-believe-you-would-think-that-I-wouldn’t voice. Well, you never know. You know that the one day that I don’t ask, I will come home to find Kuma gnawing off the leg of a chair for sustenance. So, this morning, I’m thrown off my routine because Bob left early for work and wasn’t around when I woke up. So, I had to call him to make sure that he fed the dog and therefore, am able to start my day off right. Because I’m putting the dog before my well-being, does that mean that I’m gearing up for kids? CRAP!
Correction: Jen DID ask me this morning, she was just too sleepy to remember. A true creature of habit, my Jennifer. –Bob
