Creature of Habit

As I sit here in the airport, it got me thinking about how much I'm a creature of habit with this place.  Every time I come here which lately is about 3-4 times a month, I do the same thing....  Park on the 4th floor of the deck, ride the bus, print my boarding pass from the same station, get in the priority security line (putting my things in the bin in the same order each time) and head straight to the us air club.  Once I get in the club, I eat the same thing for breakfast and about 5 minutes before boarding time, I head towards the gate.  

Honestly it is ridiculous.  I've basically convinced myself that I'd forget where I parked if I didn't park in the same spot, forget my computer at the checkpoint or do something else careless.  Therefore, I can now do my entire routine in my sleep.  Ahhh!

Off to Laguardia today and driving out to Pennsylvania for a 7pm public meeting tonight.  Then driving back to NJ to stay at a Hilton just outside the City.  Waking up in a hotel tomorrow morning on my birthday...nothing better...ughhh!  Oh well!

Please tell me when you're a creature of habit!

I definitely have my moments too! I think we all have certain routines. When I fly, I always have to buy the same magazines and they same brand of water and my snack of choice is gummy bears!

I'm similar - when i fly i always put the same things in my laptop bag and buy the same snacks!

And you are totally in my neck of the woods! Next time you're up in Northern NJ/PA it would be cool to meet!
