An Ideal Evening vs. Not Ideal

An ideal evening includes, sitting on my new comforter and leaning on my new pillows to read in bed.  And Wendell is reading in bed, too.  Then we are talking about what we are reading and connecting on a deep intellectual level.  This is followed by prayers, snuggling and going to sleep at a reasonable hour.

A not ideal evening includes me reading in bed while Wendell drools on the sheet.  Then there's praying alone because it's almost one o'clock in the morning and I don't have the heart to wake Wendell up.  And  then when I get in bed, Wendell tries to get up, so I order him to stay asleep and he complies.  Then I fall asleep without having really talked to my hubby because I stayed up reading too late.

Is anyone else willing to dish?  What does your ideal evening look like?  What usually happens?

An ideal evening for me is getting the kids in bed at a reasonable hour, watching something interesting with my hubby, and getting to bed before midnight!!! :)
