    Default Before bedtime chores

    I hate all the stuff I have to do before bed.

    Make the bed
    Brush my teeth (braces so takes extra long)
    Put bird and dog to sleep
    Make dd's lunch for school
    Pack dd's bag
    Lay out dd's uniform
    Check on dd
    Put on pjs
    Make sure everything's turned off
    left over dinner in fridge
    Sometimes dishwasher or put clothes
    On the line (I seem to do stuff at night lol)

    Just takes so long I remember the days when all I has to do was make te decision to go to sleep and turn of the light.

    I'm totally with you... except I don't have animals and I don't make my bed at night

    I agree.

    I make sure my beds made and DD is all ready for school and the kitchen cleaned up before DD goes to bed (and get her to help) then once she's in bed it's relax time for me. Usually put PJs on same time as her too cause I love my PJs 😊

    Because we live with my parents and my room is like our lounge room alot so it doesn't stay nice and neat for bed. I can't stand sand on the bed so I have to clean it all off before bed to make sure the sheets are perfect and not wrinkled lol

    Put a sheet over the birdcage and get my dog out of my parents room into my room because they usually go to sleep first and he sneaks in and takes there whole bed up.

    Never thought I'd get quiz on my list lol

    LOl.. just thought it was cute how you said you put the bird and dog to sleep I honestly pictured you taking the dog out to it's kennel and wondered how it would just stay put, lol.. sorry, I don't have a dog, or a bird.. just 3 cats who each curl up on their own to sleep..

    We did have a bird when I was a kid and thats what my mum used to do (remembering now), put a sheet over the cage.
