You Capture – Comfort

8 Apr


This is going to be a little different than usual….


I find comfort in patterns.


My computer must be opened with the same patterns.  I find comfort in knowing which windows will be located where.  Not having to think as I move my mouse to click the window I want.


Every morning at work, I have my set pattern.  I put my purse and coat on my desk, grab my water bottle and go back to the break room.  I start my toast (bread or english muffin…sometimes a bagel) and fill the water bottle – three pieces of ice and to the top with water.

My lunch has a similar set pattern.


Each week has a comfort pattern too.  Which days I spend visiting family for dinners and which ones get to be spent at home.


The comfort I find in living with these patterns helps assault the randomness that come with life.  It’s my zone.  My shield.

Without the patterns, life can crumble.

I don’t mind change.  As long as I know it’s coming.

For more comfort (most of which is far less depressing than mine) visit the lovely Keli for the last week of You Capture there before it returns to Beth.

    I’m so weird. The *idea* of routine and pattern appeal to me but I can never make myself stick to them.

      See, with big things, I can never make it stick…but the little things make me crazy. How things sit at a desk and open on a screen and whatnot. Just a little bit crazy.

    Without my patterns, or “routines” as I call them, I fall to pieces. If it isn’t part of my routine, I will forget to do it. If I mess with the routine, things go haywire, I end up at work with no keys to get in, my daughter will be shoeless, and I’ll have to check if I smell because I’ll realize I forgot to put on deodorant. Oy. Yes, it’s happened. 🙂 I’m not a big fan of change, unless I am the one who initiates it.

      Okay, see, this is just getting ridiculous. Are you my future self? Because I’ve forgotten to put deodorant on so many times that I keep some at my desk. I could have written that whole thing myself.

    I wish I could be as organized as you sound! I’m learning 😉

      If I could get it to work on things other than the little things like how my computer is setup, I would be in heaven! But I’m working on it too! Someday, I too will have an organized house and laundry that doesn’t sit on the guest bed….
