Well, into the Ordinary, as in Ordinary Time. Which is not, by the way (no matter how many homilies you've heard affirming it), about being "ordinary in an extraordinary way" or "ordinary" as in "plain old normal." "Ordinary Time" is another way of saying "the Liturgical Season of Sundays Identified by Ordinal Numbers." (As in "first", "second", "third".) You can see why we call it Ordinary Time instead.
