the oppositeof routine.
I'll never be a soccer mom, because I can't guarantee I'll get my son to the soccer games. I keep our family pretty busy with activities, but most of them are spontaneous. We signed our son up to play baseball with our local homeschooling group, and we made one game. Every Monday night I not only completely forgot about it, but when my son said he'd rather play outside, I let him.
We don't eat dinner at the same time every night, I can't stick to a writing routine for the life of me, our four year old doesn't have a set bed time, and if we have parties we wait til the night before to plan our menu.
I like that we're spontaneous and we can pick up and leave to do anything. And I think we keep life interesting by deciding to eat hot fudge sundaes before dinner. And we love our house cleaning business because our schedule is wacky.
My husband doesn't know why I'm this way since I'm so organized in other areas of my life. He's the way he is because he wanted to be total opposite of his parents. That's easy.
Our son has 4-5 speech, OT and psych sessions per week. It kills me that I have to be home at certain times every day. I hate it. If it wasn't incredibly selfish of me, I'd cancel all of them (I wouldn't do that b/c I know he needs them).
Maybe some day we'll eat dinner at 6pm every night, our son will play sports (every week!) and go to bed at the same time every night. For now we'll enjoy our hectic, fun life.
Are you a routine person? Or do you fly by the seat of your pants like us?
