The image above is a fairly accurate representation of what happens in my bed every night. TRUE STORY. As I'm thinking about our GETTING TO KNOW US prompt, I don't know if I have a bedtime reading ritual? I suppose there are a few things that are fairly routine in my night? Usually, after my girls go to bed, and the blog goes to sleep for the evening, I read on whatever surface is available until I feel the first inclination of sleep and if I'm not in bed, I get there. Once I'm in bed and the lights are off, I snuggle under the covers, grab my Kindle, and read until one of these things happens:
- I do that long blink thing that turns into sleep and once I realize that's what's happening I force myself to give up on reading for the night.
- I fall asleep in my book.
- I read past the tired eyes because I can't stop because the book is so good and then I freak the fuck out because I look over and it's 2 AM and I have to get up at 5:30 and holy shit why did I do this?
It's rare that I don't go to bed with a book. As a matter of fact, I don't think I have in the last 3 years. My poor husband; I bet he'd like to fall asleep and wake up without the glow of the screen every once in a while.
