This past summer, when we took the trip to Spokane, I found that my sister-in-law took a bath every night. I am totally a bath person--love them! But every night for me is just tough. I have thought since how I would love to follow her example.
I think I've finally figured out how to make it part of my bedtime routine. The past two nights I have done it, but one thing that's made it easier and something I anticipate is that I keep a basket with the things I need in it for my bedtime routine on a shelf in my closet. When I get out of the bath the night before, I put a towel and a pair of pajamas in for the next night. It sits and waits for me all that next day. Also in the basket are candles and matches; the items I need in order to wash my face, brush my teeth, etc.; pajamas and underwear; my schedule for the next day and my scriptures.
I like to be in bed by 9:30pm. Rarely happens, but everyday that's what I tell myself--that bedtime will be 9:30. As I see the basket sitting there, it invites me to use it and of course I want to--the sooner the better.
So, around 9pm, I go in and fill the tub. I go back in the bedroom and grab my basket.
For some reason, those candles make the bath a real treat. I climb in and sog for close to a half hour and spend time checking the next day's schedule and reading the scriptures to candlelight.
It's pretty darned magical and relaxing. A nice treat at the end of the day.
