Such is the same in my life.
Whether I realize it or not, my day-to-day routines are what keeps my life sane. This next week will bring many changes to that routine and I'm feeling a little unsettled about that.
* On Tuesday, my son leaves for a 12 day trip to France. Such a wonderful opportunity for him, yet it also means he won't be around home and I will miss him. There will be much craziness before he leaves as we work on packing and making sure he has what he needs to leave.
* Because my son will be gone, I will have to drive my daughter to school and pick her up. Extra together time, but also means I will have to adjust my commuting time.
* My daughter's boyfriend is in Spain this week. So instead of talking with him on the phone every night, she will have to find other ways to spend her time. (I'm hoping she uses this time to do homework. :)
* This is our last week of school before spring break. That means the kids will be off-the-wall. Not necessarily because of the upcoming time away from school, but the time away from their routine. It is unsettling for them as well.
How do you handle changes to your routine?
