This is a Family oriented site so Iím assuming that ďGoing to BedĒ by definition means what you do before you go to SLEEP and not actually The other connotations!!?

Hahaha!

I am assuming that they're playing on this:

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed." She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the dessert bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the wash, ironed a shirt and sewed on a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table and put the telephone book back into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastepaper basket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the school outing, and pulled a textbook out from under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick list for the supermarket. She put both near her purse.
Mom then creamed her face, put on moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and trimmed her nails. Hubby called, "I thought you were going to bed." "I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's bowl and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked. She looked in on each of the children and turned out a bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks in the laundry basket, and had a brief conversation with one child still up doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm, laid out clothing for the next day, and straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her list of things to do for the next day.
About that time, the hubby turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular, "I'm going to bed." And he did.


This is an excerpt taken from Joyce Meyer's book, "The Confident Woman".

I think the "before going to bed" definition is actually more safe (although not 100%) than the "before going to sleep" definition.

Wow Lydia, after reading your excerpt I'm tired and going to bed (to go to sleep!). Now the question is did she do anything in bed like put on nail polish or watch TV or talk to her husband before she went to sleep? Therefore, would that be considered doing something before "going to bed"?

The challenge is about what someone did... one last thing... before they went to BED. Not before they went to SLEEP. So this makes it all G-rated *grin* and excludes what the person did WHILE in bed, IMO.

So let's redefine what the challenge is irregardless of what the other people have already entered?

Merriam-Webster Definition of "go to bed": "to lie down in one's bed to Sleep"
Therefore anything prior to going to sleep is technically not going to bed!

Good to have had this two days into the challenge period, perhaps not with 2 days left to enter?

Not sure what your point is? Anyone could look up the definition at anytime. I was just suggesting a clarification. Some people are very specific in their voting despite the possiblity that there can be different interpretations.

hey I have been known to do all kinds of things when I go to bed, before I actually fall asleep...and not all of them are, ahem *inappropriate* subject matter. But I won't say what the legit reasons are, in case I decide to enter.

Ha!

I think we are saying the same thing. The challenge is about the one last thing someone does before they get into their bed.
