Okay, it’s almost the end of November and I’m just now looking at the BlogHer site. Apparently there’s a prompt for every day! Who knew?
Today’s prompt is what is the last thing you do before bed?
|What a lovely room!*|
Since I have insomnia, I try to go to bed at around the same time every night (between 9 and 10 – hey I get up at 4:30, so that’s reasonable). The thing is, I always have to read before I fall asleep – no matter how late it is. So no matter what, the last thing I do is read a couple of pages in my current book.
If I’m in bed and have finished my reading, but then remember that I have to take my pills or brush my teeth…I go do the whatever and come back to bed. Then I have to pick up the book again to get a couple more pages in. I don’t feel right if I don’t read right before falling asleep.
On rare occasions, my daughter has come into my room, removed my glasses, and turned off the light for me. Yes, she’s a good girl.
