November Blog #29: "Urination! Nature's Alarm Clock"

NaBloPoMo Prompt of the Day (Nov 29): What is the last thing you do before bed?

I have always struggled with establishing a routine to my daily life, but regardless of the flaws in mine, I do have some resemblance of a structure to my day.  I am usually up for a couple of hours after my daughter is in bed, like now.  I am usually on the computer, like now.  I will usually start getting tired…like now.  I will get dressed in my pajamas and all brushed and ready for bed and then come out to either play on the computer a little bit more (like now) or sit and either read for awhile or watch some TV for a few minutes.

Then, I get up and shut all of the lights off.  I then go and let Buster in if I haven’t already done so, and then turn off the outside light as well as deadbolt the door.  I go back to bed, but before I do, the last thing I do before bed is go into the bathroom…and pee.  Urination!!  I almost always pee before going to bed.  I also routinely pee before leaving the house and usually before leaving any place that I am at, aside from the grocery store or something.  Home or residences, I will usually pee before heading out into the world again.  I don’t know why; it’s a mystery.  Just a habit.  I like to have an empty bladder for what is in store for me...and for tonight, as I lay there trying to fall asleep, so the last thing I do before I go to bed is drain the system and prepare for shut down.
