The Long Awaited Blog Post

Because I have nothing else to write about, and with hopes that maybe, just maybe, some of you will be able to make me feel like i'm not so strange after all relate to me... tonight I will share with you my rigorous bedtime routine. It's gotten worse over the years. Here goes.. step by step ~

After watching the last show of the night, I'll get up to turn the living room light on.
Shut the TV off.
Make sure the front door is locked.
Turn the Kitchen light on, turn the living room light off.
Make sure the back door is locked.
Turn the bedroom light on, go back and turn the kitchen light off.
Lock bedroom door, make sure the "stay" alarm is on.
While brushing teeth, turn the bedside lamp on and the bedroom light off.
Wash face.
Turn the ceiling fan on.
Shut the closet door all the way and the bathroom door all the way (it freaks me out to be able to see into either one when it's dark).
Turn the oscillating fan on. On high.
Get in bed with heating pad on my lower back. (this started in high school when I had really bad back problems for some reason that the doctors never could find out. They also gave me muscle relaxers. Too bad I didn't hang on to that bedtime ritual. I joke. Kind of ).
Feet have to be outside of the sheets/blankets.
Read until I can no longer keep my eyes open.

This is the ONLY aspect of my life that I am OCD about. For some, this post may be slightly boring. Some of you may enjoy though. If I read this out there in blog land I would be rolling in laughter fits and telling that person we must be long lost twins.

Oh yes... I have a very specific routine too!! Once again, we're so eerily similar in some aspects of our life!

I watch my last show of the night, turn off the TV, walk to the back door, turn the outside light on, let Toby out, go turn off the living room light, push the air down to around 68 (I have to be cold to sleep!), turn the ceiling fan, TV and oscillating fan on in my room, brush my teeth, wash my face, take out my contacts, shut my bathroom and closet doors (they freak me out at night too!), bring Toby in, lock the door, go back to my room, shut the door, turn off the overhead light, set my alarm, get comfortable in bed, then turn off the TV.

All in that order. Every night.
Sorry to bore you with my list! But I totally feel ya with the bedtime routine! :)

I'm with Mrs. G.I. Joe, my feet have to be covered too. haha

I think everyone has their own little routine before bed. Mine basically consists of making sure the house is all locked up and clean (I hate waking up to a messy house).

This did make me laugh though. :)
