Breaking Out of the Routine

We’ve officially been living in Lake Tahoe for almost two months. Life is settling down and we’re getting into a daily routine.


Wake up > shower > drive to work with coffee/radio > work, work, work > drive home > stop at grocery store > make dinner > watch Luke do the dishes :) > read/watch tv > go to sleep.


Wake up > have coffee and breakfast > drive to mountain > ski, ski, ski > drive home > pick up dinner > take a loooong steam shower > relax > pass out from exhaustion.

You’d think after all the stress of moving, I’d  be happy to welcome a regular routine, but actually, part of me misses all that excitement I felt during our move.

It’s not that I’m not thrilled with our life here, it’s just getting back to a more “normal” existence is leaving me a little desirous of something exciting to happen.

My mom says I’ve always been like this. As a child I used to tell her “Mom I have NOTHING to look forward to!!” even though I had plenty of fun things going on.

Luckily, I have some events on the horizon that should shake my routine up a bit.

– Next Saturday, Luke and I are having a date night in Reno. We’re going to the Adam Carolla comedy show and then staying the night at the casino.

– In February, two of our dear friends are coming to visit from Florida for the weekend.

– In March, we are going to Breckenridge to visit our friend who also just started working for Vail Resorts and of course skiing.

– In May, I am going to Vegas with some of my college girlfriends. I’ve never been with friends (always for work) so I’m super excited  about this one!

What do you do when you want to break out of your regular routine?
