Question of the Day

What is the very last thing you do before you settle in to fall asleep at night? (Or whenever you take your longest rest of the day.)

Iain and I keep the same schedule, so we go to bed together pretty much every night. We have a pretty standard routine, the order of which might vary slightly, depending on who's carrying out which task that night.

But the very last thing I do every night is tell Iain I love him. I'm not superstitious about it, and we tell each other "I love you" like a zillion times a day, so it's not some special thing we save just for bedtime. To call it a habit seems to suggest it's so axiomatic as to be meaningless, but it's not. It's a nice habit.
