Every night it is my goal to go to bed by midnight, and I have finally figured out how to do it. All I have to do is create a snowstorm that knocks out the power at 9:15pm. Ta-da! No internet, no light to read or study by (I do have a couple candles and flashlights, but most of my candles are at home in CA in a box in the house*), nothing to do but go to bed! I was in bed by 10:30.
Unfortunately, owing to the fact that I have gone to bed between 2-3 AM for the past several weeks/months, I didn't get to sleep for another hour (and who can blame me? I was 4 hours ahead of schedule!), and I had to get out of bed twice to re-stretch (I have to stretch my legs each night to "get the energy out"--restless legs). And I woke up at 1:30 for some reason and went to turn the light off downstairs (yay! the power is back on!). But when I woke up in the morning, I did feel more rested than I normally do, so I suppose that all in all it was a good night.
*The candles would be in a box in the garage, but it gets too hot in the summer (they would melt), so they're in the house instead. I think. If Mother Edit reads this, perhaps she can tell me if my candles are still there.
