Night-Time Routine


What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?

I have a routine that doesn’t vary. (If it did, I wouldn’t know what I was doing.) I take the dogs out for their late night walk. Then I turn the TV off and put Ralphy in his crate with his stick for the night and Ernie and I go upstairs. (This is after I have said my late evening prayers.) I brush my teeth and lay out my meds for the night and the next morning and then take my night meds. Then I get it bed and say my night prayers and turn out the light and call Ernie to come sleep on his step at the foot of the bed. I lay down and go to sleep. That’s it. It’s quite simple, really. A regular routine that doesn’t vary during the winter at all. During daylight savings time, I go to bed right after i say my late evening prayers (after I take the dogs out) but in the winter, I say prayers early and have about an hour before I start my night-time routine.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
