I say it every time. The night before we take off on a trip, “I am going to bed early.” And – I’m sure you know where I’m going with this – it never happens. As it was last night, I didn’t end up going to bed until a little before 10 p.m., a full two hours after I had planned to hit the hay.
No matter how much I pack ahead of time, or the chores I complete in the days leading up to our departure, I inevitably find something else to do before feeling free to head to bed to get some serious zzzzs before a long drive.
I’ll have more on where we are headed and our wonderful trip next week but in the meantime, what are your tips for getting to bed early the night before a big event or trip?
