Rehearsals take a break, the schedule gets a little more flexible and free. It's just the right»

I know that this post goes against my nature and against things I may have posted in the past. I still stand by my comfort level in having a dependable routine, and I still believe that routines are important for establishing healthy patterns that need to be repeated.
