I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Blog Your Blessings Sunday - Getting Into a Routine

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Moving is always disruptive but in our case even more so because we went on our fall vacation just days after the move.  That meant we knew we were coming home to having to get the house settled.  It was nice going to our vacation home because we basically have a routine.  The first couple of days are spent doing the necessities but we have a fairly well established laid back routine we follow.  

Last week was our first full week in our new home without having to go between two house.  We quickly formed a routine to help us organize our new home.  Eliminating my husband's daily drive gives us a lot more time together which is really nice.  We have always sat down as a family for dinner ever since we were newlyweds but now we are enjoying more meals together.  One of the biggest changes I made was where the computer is.  In our last three homes, the computer was located in the family room.  Quite often one of us would be on the computer while the other was watching television.  The computer is located in a bedroom turned office in our new home.  We now have a routine of eating dinner together then spending time together which is really nice.  Another thing we changed was to remove the television from our bedroom.  It wasn't meant to be that way it just happened.  We don't have a television in our bedroom at our vacation home and here we didn't get it connected up but then we aren't missing it either.  We've decided to forego the television in our bedroom for awhile.

Within a week we have established a nice, rather laid back routine.  Routines are a good thing.  They help keep daily life manageable and that's a blessing!
