My G is programmed like a little robot I tell you! I am sure it has something to do with his engineering genes. He loves routines and sticks to them like clockwork.
Lately I have been staying up later than him. I leave the light on because he sleeps with a mask anyway. I often lie on the bed next to him reading or surfing the net on the laptop. I usually only decide it's time to go to bed when I really need to pee, because it gets me up.
For some reason every single time I get up off the bed bursting for the toilet, G wakes up, gets up, all groggy, and heads straight for the bathroom, often literally cutting me off as I am trying to make a dash! Not cool! This happens every single night and is driving me nuts. I mean, I wait til I am quite desperate before I have the energy to get up in the first place.
Trying to break G of his habits is like getting a puppy to separate from his ball, not easy. Maybe it is easier if I break my own habit, and pee and brush my teeth at the same time as him, and then read til I fall asleep. Either that or I am bringing out my latent rugby tackling skills. I'm sure I have just been suppressing them all this time.
