The Evening Routine

Used to be, when I'd decide I was ready for bed, I'd run through the following quick routine...

-Brush teeth
-Use john
-Wash hands
-Go sleep

And, somehow, between getting older and getting a cat, it has turned into...

-Dump water bowl & fill with fresh water
-Clean cat box & flush clumps
-Wash hands
-Hide four kitty treats (so she'll have something to hunt at night)
-Have short play session before sneaking off into my bedroom
-Brush teeth
-Wash face
-Apply Mederma (anti-scar stuff for the kitten-attack scar under my lip)
-Apply lip balm
-Wash hands (to remove excess Mederma and lip balm)
-Use john
-Wash hands again
-Apply hydration gel (hands are now dry after all that washing)
-Go sleep

It's no wonder it takes me forty-five mintues to get into bed every night.

You are the sweetest to hide 4 kitty treats each night for her to hunt!  I'm just wondering -- do you ever check to make sure she found them all?  Cause I'm thinking you'll come across a treat which was planted 2 years ago, or something.  :-)
