Writer's Block: Nightly Rituals

Do you have a bedtime routine? What do you do, and what's the biggest consequence when you don't get those things done?

This is my evening mental checklist (the first four are my downstairs list, i.e., before I go upstairs to bed [which I don't do anymore, but I'm OCD like that], and the second four are my upstairs list):

  • Thermostat (moot now since I don't control the A/C)
  • Door (locked)
  • Phone (in my hand to carry upstairs)
  • Water (dish filled for the cats)
  • Eyes (contacts out)
  • Teeth (brushed)
  • Pee (self-explanatory)
  • Alarm (on)
