I'm having the same problem, Mary. If you have someone available with a good voice, have them sing you  a lullaby. Or you could put on a good CD. BUT if you are in a guilty mood, go quilt. I like to quilt when I can't sleep but that's when I work on projects that don't require much thought.  I've been known to fall asleep at my sewing machine or computer. Hope you finally get some shut eye.

When I get into one of those kind of nights, I drink a glass of warm milk and then sit with a good book and read.  In a matter of minutes (20 or so), my eyes get really heavy and off to bed.  It sure helps.

I just get up and sew something simple.  If you fuss about not being able to sleep, it is self defeating.   I usually have a few days a month or every other month where I do some midnight seams and it dosen't hurt me.  I'm not tired the next day because I wasn't tired to begin with/  after a few days, i sleep like a log and it all works out.

Let me know, too, Mary. I seem to have this problem frequently. I was still awake Sunday morning at 7am. Then I wanted to sleep the day away.
