We all have our routines.
Things that are extremely comforting to us.
I have a few rather odd, but soothing routines that literally puts me in this sort of "feel good" mode.
I look forward to 7:30pm, and 8:15pm every evening.
By this time of the evening,I'm exhausted from being home with the boys all day.
Immediately after we've tucked the boys into bed, (for the first time) I sprint to my room to find my favorite most comfy bedtime clothes. My blue-long-sleeved-cotton-maternity shirt, and my old-grey-white-paint-splattered-drawstring-cotton-rayon-target-purchased lounging sleep pants. (Which I purchased 7 years ago in the workout attire area of the store.)
My blue maternity shirt is one of the most comfy shirts I own for my bedtime clothes.
I have no problem wearing maternity clothes when I'm not pregnant.
Have you ever tried on the over sized shirts in the maternity section of your local store?
You should, they're really comfortable!!
Don't even get me started on how much I loved those kangaroo pouch maternity pants-WOW! Put those on when you know you're going to have a large dinner.
Anyhow, that's my routine, going straight for my night clothes as soon as the boys have been tucked into bed. And nothing throws me off more, if my blue shirt and gray-stretched-out-no longer-working-drawstring pants, are dirty.
I get quite sullen when my favorite comfy pj's aren't clean. Lucky for me, I have a back up shirt and pair of pants, just for those occasions.
But that's my routine, and if it doesn't run as planned, I'm messed up.
I "make" my coffee a specific way every morning. If it's not "made" this way, it tastes different:
1. pour my sweet and low single packet into the empty coffee mug
2. shake up the creamer which is usually hazelnut flavored liquid creamer.
(shaking it at least three times so that the cream pours out frothy/bubbly.)
3. Pour the liquid creamer into my clean BEN YIDDISH cup or any of my smooth mugs
(coffee doesn't taste right in anything that isn't a smooth mug or my Ben cup)
4. Lastly the coffee is added to the creation of bubbly sugared creamer
(giving it a rather frothy easy mixed taste that aids in the first sip of the morning get going kids need their breakfasts routine)
If it's not "made" that way, the coffee doesn't taste right.

I know, seems weird!
Remind me to tell you about my habit with eating dried noodles.
Yes, I know.
