Oh, the importance of routine. I was ahead of schedule today. By quite a lot. Then I broke the routine and left the house a bit later than usual. Hit a different traffic pattern. Missed my train. Which is to say that I beat the train to the station but had to park too far away to get across the tracks before it arrived.
I am not one to race with trains, climb under or around them when not engaged in my official duties, or stress about missing one when there's another about half-an-hour after. (That's an interesting construction -- is it legal?)
One of the routines I am currently engaged in is checking the blog "Daily Writing Tips" (http://www.dailywritingtips.com/) during lunch break while I eat my peanut butter and love sandwich. It's a great source of information about how to use the English language correctly. I find it to be to the point, filled with all of the examples I ever need in a format that's easy to skip over if I don't need them. The topics are varied but applicable. I've actually learned somethings.
And forgotten them. Which is why I check every day...
