In an effort to fall asleep faster, I've changed my nighttime routine. Rather than sitting up on the computer half the night (like tonight...got distracted...oops), we put Pandora on the Jim Brickman station and hang out.
Scott is usually on his laptop, while I sit and knit or crochet. Zach, our dog, is pretty much always snuggled up against me like that.
The combination of low light, soothing music, and calming activity is helping me to fall asleep sooner. While I am usually still up pretty late, I'm no longer laying in bed for 3-4 hours waiting for sleep to come.
How do you spend your evening hours after the kids have gone to bed?
